Congrats to WNBA Couple Who Just Gave Birth to Twins!

Congratulations to DeWanna Bonner and Candice Dupree! The WNBA players just became new moms to twin girls!

The couple met as teammates while playing for the Phoenix Mercury back in 2010. It took them less than a week to realize they were meant to be more than friends.

“It was more as friends at first,” DeWanna said in a recent interview with the IndyStar. “Then she kind of learned she couldn’t live without me.”

Candice Dupree and DeWanna Bonner met and fell in love in the WNBA.

Candice, an All-Star forward for the Indiana Fever, says that she had to grow up to make the relationship work and got help from her mom to help tame her “wild side.”

Last fall Candice and DeWanna married in front of a small group of friends and family.

Candice and DeWanna will juggle motherhood and a unique career in basketball where they travel nationally and internationally each year. The new moms will both return to basketball next WNBA season.
