Last year was a year of firsts for Candace Parker. In 2008 she was selected as the No. 1 overall pick in the WNBA Draft by the Los Angeles Sparks, she was the first woman in the WNBA to win both Rookie of the Year and Most Valuable Player and she captured her first Olympic Gold Medal at the Summer Games in Beijing. Entering a new year, Parker has another special first to look forward to. This spring, she and husband Shelden Williams of the Sacramento Kings are expecting their first child.

“Shelden and I are very excited to be expanding our family,” said Parker. “We feel blessed and look forward to becoming parents.”

“We are happy to welcome a new addition into the Sparks family and on behalf of the entire organization we congratulate both Candace and Shelden,” said Penny Toler, Los Angeles Sparks General Manager.

Parker will continue to work out in preparation to participate in the 2009 WNBA season.

Parker nearly averaged a double-double her rookie season (18.5 ppg, 9.5 rpg) and she led the WNBA in rebounds. She earned the 2008 WNBA Rookie of the Year award and the Most Valuable Player award marking the first time in the WNBA’s 12 seasons that a rookie has won MVP. Parker won back-to-back NCAA championships with the Lady Vols in 2007 and 2008. She led the team in scoring (20.6 ppg) and rebounding (8.8 rpg) her final season at Tennessee. Parker was named the 2007 and 2008 Collegiate Female John R. Wooden Player of the Year, State Farm Player of the Year, Basketball Writers Association National Player of the Year and Kodak All-American. She earned the NCAA Final Four MVP award in 2007 and 2008.

I don't think she's by any means drop dead gorgeous, but when you combine her pretty good looks with that body and athleticism, sign me up!

She and our offspring would be my retirement plan.

Sheldon Williams got Candace Parker? Candace isn't the best by any means, but she's pretty attractive, and Sheldon Williams looks like a freak of nature.

That kid better pray that he/she get his/her looks from Candace.....he/she doesn't want to inherit Sheldon's looks and his stadium-sized forehead. Seriously, his forehead is like a ripe melon.....it's HUUUGGEEEE.....like Sputnik.

Haha. And I'd have a shot with Candace Parker? I'm just saying, if I'm having a fantasy shot at it, I'm not picking Candace.

Man, that kid could have so much potential if it wanted to play basketball. If only it wasn't Shelden Williams. Imagine Candace Parker and like, Dwayne Wade... oh man.

I guess that's pretty logical.
