Los Angeles Lakers Star Lonzo Ball & Girlfriend Welcome Their 1st Child — See Announcement
Someone better get LaVar Ball a cigar, because he’s a new grandfather!

20-year-old NBA star Lonzo Ball welcomes a baby girl with girlfriend and high school sweetheart Denise Garcia. Garcia, 22-years-old, gave birth to the little one on July 22, 2018. 

They’ve given her the cutest name ever: Zoey Christina Ball. Zoey is a Greek word meaning life, and Zo is known to be Lonzo’s nickname. 

Lonzo originally denied claims of the pair expecting back in February, only to confirm those rumors in April, letting everyone know they were expecting a girl. 

According to TMZ, the baby girl is as happy and healthy as can be as confirmed by a family rep. 


Lonzo and Denise started dating when they were young kids living in Chino Hills and attending Chino Hills High School together.


Lonzo took to social media after Zoey’s birth to make a simple, announcement that read 7.22.18 #ZCB.

Check out that post below:

The Los Angeles Lakers star played college basketball for just one season with the UCLA Bruins before the Lakers selected him with the second overall pick of the 2017 NBA draft. His parents, LaVar and Tina Ball, were also college basketball players. 

After the athlete was drafted to the Lakers in June of last year, Denise congratulated him on Instagram while proclaiming her love.

She wrote, “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,” Denise captioned a photo of her and Lonzo. “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💜💛.”

After their big April pregnancy reveal, Lonzo and Denise announced their newborn’s name on their Facebook show, Ball in the Family.



This off-season, Lonzo Ball underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left knee and is expected to be fully recovered in time for training camp, according to the Los Angeles Lakers. We bet nothing feels better than shooting the game-winning three pointers he’s known for… until you experience bringing new life into the world.

We’re so happy these two are on to the next chapter of their lives and wish them nothing but the best!
