Dearica Hamby Says She Played In WNBA Finals While Pregnant With Orlando Scandrick’s Baby

This is interesting! According to Aces F Dearica Hamby, she played in the WNBA finals while she was still pregnant with her second child. Sports folks are active so it’s normal for her to have played in the finals while still carrying a baby.

Yahoo Sports got more;

Dearica Hamby had a little extra to celebrate during the festivities around the Las Vegas Aces’ 2022 WNBA championship.

During the Aces’ championship parade, the two-time All-Star delivered a speech to the crowd, but things got interesting when the announcer said, “Give it up one more time for Amaya’s mom!”

Hamby quickly responded by announcing, “It’s no longer Amaya’s mom. It’s Amaya and Legend’s mom.”

Hamby delivered some more confirmation that night when she and her daughter, Amaya, appeared on the platform Togethxr’s Instagram Live. At her mother’s prodding, Amaya announced, “I’m having another brother!”

So it would appear Hamby took the court against the Connecticut Sun during the Finals while pregnant, though it’s unclear how far along she would have been.

The 28-year-old missed much of the Aces’ run to the final round due to a right knee bone contusion, but came back in time to play the final two games of the semifinals against the Seattle Storm. In the Finals, Hamby saw limited action, scoring seven points total in 44 minutes, but her presence was a needed boost for the 2022 champions.

When healthy, Hamby has been a key player for the Aces, averaging 11 points and 7.1 rebounds per game over the last four seasons. She earned back-to-back WNBA Sixth Player of the Year awards in 2019 and 2020, then back-to-back All-Star nods in 2021 and 2022.

She is dating Draya’s baby daddy Orlando Scandrick.

Popular sports commentator Orlando Scandrick is reportedly now dating WNBA star Dearica Marie Hamby. Orlando Lee Scandrick (born February 10, 1987) is an American sports commentator and former American football cornerback.

He played college football at Boise State University and was drafted by the Dallas Cowboys in the fifth round of the 2008 NFL Draft. He has also previously played for the Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles.
