Mariah Riddlesprigger and Giannis Antetokounmpo took to social media Wednesday night to announce they are expecting a third child.

“Our dreams becoming reality,” Riddlesprigger wrote in an Instagram post.

The couple already have two children — 3-year-old Liam and 1-year-old Maverick Shai. The boys are often seen in the halls and on the floor of Fiserv Forum while the Bucks superstar gets up some shots or works the crowd.

In the summer of 2022, the Greek Freak took his sons to Greece where the family visited the Acropolis. “Our annual Akropolis visit”, he captioned his father-and-sons photo on Instagram.

Antetokounmpo’s family

Antetokounmpo’s first son, Liam, was born on Feb. 10, 2020. Shortly after his 1st birthday in 2021, Liam attended his first Bucks home game to cheer his dad on in person. Since then, the 3-year-old has watched Antetokounmpo play plenty of basketball.

Despite Antetokounmpo’s successful basketball career, the Bucks star has made it clear that he would do anything for his son. He told Bucks announcer Jim Paschke in May 2021, “If my son asked me, ‘Dad, when are you going to retire and play more with me?’ I’d retire right now.”

Antetokounmpo and Riddlesprigger welcomed their second child together, son Maverick, on Aug. 18, 2021. Three months after Maverick’s arrival, the parents organized a diaper drive to celebrate his birth and give back to their community.

“Becoming a mom made me realize how expensive basic needs for babies and children are,” she wrote on Instagram.

Riddlesprigger first revealed she and the Bucks player were expecting another baby in May 2021. “Liam and Baby #2, thank you for giving me purpose!,” she wrote in an Instagram post

Both Antetokounmpo and Riddlesprigger often share their admiration and gratitude for their family.

In December, Riddlesprigger shared a photo of her and Giannis on his birthday stating, “Giannis, I seriously adore everything about you. My life would be dull without your light. The father you are to our boys is breathtaking. Happy Birthday My Love I promise this year is going to be magical.”

Earlier on Wednesday, it was announced that Antetokounmpo was the only player in the NBA this season to be a unanimous selection for the All-NBA first team. In doing so, he achieved a remarkable distinction that hasn’t been seen in the league in the past 50 years.

The 28-year-old now has been a unanimous first-team selection in each of the past five seasons, an achievement no player has accomplished in at least half a century.

Dating back to the 2018-19 campaign, Giannis hasn’t missed out on a single first-team vote, garnering all 500 out of a possible 500 during that span.
