Houston Rockets center Yao Ming and wife Ye Li are expecting their first baby, according to reports.
The news was accidentally revealed by Ye’s close friend Miao Lijie who is her former teammate on China’s women’s basketball team, when attending a show in Shanghai. When asked why Ye did not come with her, Miao said a “pregnant woman deserves less public activities.”
Oops. Miao had better throw one hell of a baby shower!
Yao checks in at 7’6″, and the wife is also no slouch at 6’2″. Which means they are likely to hear the pitter-patter of, um, rather big feet.
Yao has been out with a foot injury. So instead of making lay-ups, he apparently decided to make babies! Congrats, guys. Or, as they say in Mandarin, [INSERT PROPER CHARACTERS HERE]!
Didn’t know I was bilingual, did you?
