Nikki Mudarris wrote,

“And then there was three. LaVelo Anthony Ball… born July 19, 2023. My son, you gave me a purpose in life. I promise to love you, guide you, protect you and be with you every step of the way. I promise to teach you right from wrong and be the best mommy to you I can be. I love you soooo much you changed my world, you make my heart so full and complete. The second I saw you I never felt a love I felt with you. I’m so thankful to have you and that you picked me as your mommy.” 

She continued,

“To my baby @gelo thank you for being so supportive of me, especially during my labor, it was hard, challenging and long but you were with me every step of the way encouraging me and reassuring me I could do it & I did. I could have never done it without you by my side. I love you so much I’m so grateful to experience this with you and raise our son together, he’s absolutely perfect. I’m so thankful to have you both. This is just the beginning of the very best chapter yet…”

Last month, the couple celebrated their son’s stunning teddy bear-themed baby shower surrounded by family and friends.

In April, the pair spoke about expecting their first child together. During the interview, they shared,

“We’re both so excited about becoming parents, we spoke about having a life and kids when we first met, our goals, dreams, life we wanted & then it really happened.”

They added,

“We can’t wait to meet our baby and begin this new chapter together. It’s super exciting for us both being first-time parents and getting to experience everything together.”

Ball, who plays for the Greensboro Swarm of the NBA G League, also revealed how he told his parents the big news.

“When I told my mom and pops they were shocked a little bit but I think more so excited than anything. My mom was yelling and cheering in excitement. When I told my brothers [NBA stars LaMelo and Lonzo Ball] they were happy for me and also excited to become new uncles to my seed.”

Mudarris and Ball were reportedly dating for over a year before announcing they were expecting their first.
