Las Vegas Aces Guard Chelsea Gray Has Another Reason To Celebrate As She Announces First Child With Wife
Las Vegas Aces star guard Chelsea Gray has announced she and her wife are expecting .
Fresh off celebrating the Las Vegas Aces’ second championship in two years, the team’s star guard Chelsea Gray took to Instagram alongside her wife, Tipesa Moorer, to announce the pair are expecting their first child.
Holding up an adorable onesie that read “a baby is brewing,” the happy couple shared their joyful news in a post that quickly racked up congratulatory comments from Gray’s teammates as well as other athletes. “We can’t waittttt❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️🔥🔥,” said WNBA legend and Aces veteran Candace Parker. Aces Head coach Becky Hammond joined the chorus of supporters with a “💜💜”.
While the Las Vegas Aces recorded their second franchise win, for Gray it was her third time being crowned a WNBA champion, as she’d won with the Los Angeles Sparks in 2016 — making her part of both of the league’s franchises that have recorded back-to-back championships. The Aces had a season fraught with adversity as Hammond served a two-game suspension after a probe into the team revealed misconduct, costing them their 2025 first-round draft pick, according to Bleacher Report. The team would also spend the second half of the season without three-time WNBA champion and two-time league MVP Candace Parker, who sustained a foot injury and was ruled out indefinitely. “It shouldn’t be easy. It should be hard as heck to go in there and repeat, and it was,” Hammond said after the win.
