Giannis Antetokounmpo is currently living his best year. He became the 2019 NBA MVP because of a splendid season with the Milwaukee Bucks. Furthermore, he has been gifted with some grand news from his girlfriend. Mariah Danae Riddlesprigger, on her Instagram, has announced the Greek Freak will be a dad soon. She uploaded a photo with a tiny buck stuffed toy and a miniature-sized Antetokounmpo jersey with the caption “MVB ‘Most Valuable Baby’ On His Way!”
Giannis, true to his sarcastic nature, commented, “Who’s the father?” His brother and new teammate in the Bucks, Thanasis Antetokounmpo, commented on the post with heart emoticons. If Giannis required any more motivation to take his game to a whole new level, he has received it now.
