Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo will soon be a father of two!
Antetokounmpo’s girlfriend, Mariah Riddlesprigger, confirmed the exciting news on Instagram after she posted a heartwarming Mother’s Day message. In the post she titled “My Purpose,” the partner of the Bucks star shared the joy she has been experiencing after becoming a mom. In the latter part of the post, she then mentioned that baby no. 2 is on the way!
“Oh and I forgot to mention baby #2 is on the way and I’m in for even more life lessons! My kids are my biggest blessing and my greatest lesson!” Mariah wrote.

The Bucks star and his partner welcomed their first child, Liam, in 2020. Now, they will soon be a family of four.
This is certainly an incredible news for Giannis Antetokounmpo, one which should only fuel him even more as he tries to lead the Bucks to the promised land. After all, having anew child seems to be one of the greatest motivators for NBA players–the best example of which is Fred VanVleet, who had a memorable game in the 2019 Playoffs after the birth of his son.
Will we see Giannis take it up a notch come playoff time following this exciting news? The Bucks faithful certainly hope so!
All these aside though, congratulations to Giannis and his wife Mariah!
