Double the fun!
WNBA star Glory Johnson announced she’s expecting twins by sharing a photo of her sonogram on Instagram Monday.
“It’s not a surprise for me because this is what we planned for with the IVF cycle, though hearing their hearts beat for [the first] time was the most ASTONISHING thing I have ever hear in my ENTIRE Life,” the 24-year-old writes.
The Tulsa Shock forward added, “For 15yrs Double-Doubles came with hardwork and dedication … now I’ve been blessed by God to have ‘double doubles’ for the rest of my life!”

The news comes nearly one month after Glory and her now-estranged partner, fellow WNBA star Brittney Griner, revealed they're expecting a child on June 4.
Their relationship has been a bit tumultuous, given Brittney filed for an annulment just one day after the baby announcement.
The duo wed on May 8, 2015, just a little more than two weeks after Brittney and Glory were both arrested for physically attacking each other in Phoenix on April 22.
Brittney opened up about the split in an interview with ESPN just a few days after they parted ways.
"Prior to us getting married, I knew I shouldn't have went through with it," the Phoenix Mercury center, 24, told the publication.
"But sometimes you feel pressured into things. I went along with it and I knew I shouldn't have. It was a huge mistake."
