Who is the girlfriend of Giannis Antetokounmpo? The couple expects the second child.
Recently, NBA superstars have been impressed by Giannis Antetokounmpo, the Greek Freak, on the basketball court. His efforts have meant the Milwaukee Bucks have become the NBA Champions, for only the second time in the team’s history.
The Milwaukee Bucks initially won the NBA Championship in 1971, thus Antetokounmpo helped them win it again on the 50th anniversary. Big personalities have taken notice of his efforts on the floor, including LeBron James, who tweeted during the championship game, “Greek Freak is HOOPING!!!!!!!”
Kobe Bryant, the late basketball player, recognized Antetokounmpo’s potential years before, writing in 2019: “My man….M.V.P. Greatness. Next up: Championship. #MambaMentality”
It seems this prophecy was pretty exact, given his recent play where he scored 50 of the team’s 105 points, as well as 14 rebounds and five blocks to win them the title. His performance came after he was forced to withdraw from a game earlier in July owing to a knee ailment, which put his place in the final in jeopardy.
All eyes are on Antetokounmpo, which means all eyes are on his family.

“My beloved son has given me a sense of purpose that I never knew I had in me. I mean, what crazy person decides to start a new journey 3 months after giving birth, but having him has been the extra inspiration I needed to get started!
“I am so blessed to have two great loves that give me purpose, passion and perseverance!”
In recent posts, she confirmed that she is pregnant with the couple’s second child after launching her new brand on Mother’s Day, explaining that her children give her “purpose.”
She announced her pregnancy in May, so it may be that the child is due in early 2022, although neither she nor Antetokounmpo have confirmed that date.
