In case you were uninformed, Derrick Rose is expecting a child with his girlfriend, Alaina Anderson. The mom-to-be shared pictures of her growing bump with her Instagram fans last month. The couple held a baby shower in honor of their little one this past weekend.
“Boy or Girl,” Alaina asked. “Hopefully boy,” one Instagram follower replied. Dozens of other fans predicted that a girl was on the horizon. Alaina also thanked family and friends for attending her and Derrick Rose’s shower held in honor of their impending newborn. “Celebrating Baby Rose,” she wrote. “Thank you to everyone who came out to celebrate with us and for all the love and wishes,” Anderson exclaimed.
Love, well wishes, and a bit of surprise came about a month ago when Alaina Anderson announced her and Derrick Rose’s expectancy. “Bumpin,” Alaina shared along with a candid of herself cradling her bump. “Congrats to you and Pooh,” one of Anderson’s followers wrote. “You guys will make wonderful parents to the baby and an even better family! What a blessing for the both of you and hoping Pooh gets back on the court soon.”
The possibility of Derrick getting back to the action of the basketball court may not come in the immediate future. Rose allegedly left the Cleveland Cavaliers to re-evaluate his career as a professional athlete. “I want him to take his time,” Cavs coach Tyronn Lue told the press. “It’s a personal matter,” Lue added. “Just know the team, the coaches, the organization, we all have his back. I wish him well, and we expect to have him back.”
Derrick Rose is presently the proud father of one child, PJ Rose, who he co-parents with ex-girlfriend, Mieka Reese. Stay tuned for more celebrity baby news!
