The announcement of twins comes several weeks after the Tulsa Shock athlete announced that she was pregnant on June 4. One day later, Griner filed to annul their marriage of 28 days.

Of the split, Griner, 24, explained to ESPN on June 8 that tying the knot with Johnson was a "huge mistake" and she knew, prior to the wedding, that she personally "shouldn't have went through with it."

Days later, Johnson broke her silence, clarifying rumors surrounding the couple. "I am truly really saddened by the recent turn of events and was not expecting to have our marriage end so abruptly," she told Us Weekly on June 12. "At no stage was Brittney pressured to undertake the fertility process. In fact, throughout the entire process, Brittney was a willing participant, consenting and signing all the necessary documents that needed to be signed in order to move forward with the treatments."
