Big Baller Brand will soon have a new ambassador as Lonzo Ball is going to be a father, according to TMZ, which cites "multiple sources connected with the situation."
His girlfriend Denise is reportedly four months pregnant. She and Ball have been dating since they were high school students at Chino Hills in California. Ball has shared the occasional photo of Denise on his Instagram.

Denise has 322,000 Instagram followers. The people just can't get enough of the Ball family.
From the very first moment I saw him I knew he was special. Without knowing his name or watching him play, all I cared about was that fact that he caught my eye and had my attention. As impossible as it may seem, the Zo I know off the court is more incredible than who he is on the court. Personally, it will always be that way. Being by his side through it all, has been a blessing in itself. It brings me so much happiness to watch him do what he loves and no one deserves this opportunity more than he does. Congrats on this accomplishment, but we know you ain't done yet. It's time to takeover this next level and I'm ready to support you along the way💜💛

Ball, who recently turned 20, is having a decent rookie year for the Lakers. After being drafted No. 2 in the 2017 draft, Ball is averaging 10.2 points, 7.1 rebounds, and 7.1 assists per game. The 6-foot-6 point guard, who has at times struggled with his shot, is shooting 30 percent from three-point range.
Though it seemed his brothers were destined to follow in his footsteps and play college ball at UCLA, they are now competing in the Lithuanian pro circuit. The Balls' father, LaVar, made a name for himself in 2017 as one of the most polarizing figures in sports. The Big Baller Bossman can now add grandpa to his list of accomplishments.
