“It’s safe to say we are all obsessed!” she added.

“Kendall you are so loved. A glimpse into the first 48 hours with our sweet baby girl. 🎀.”

Congratulatory comments poured in to mark the special occasion.

“Daryn says hey twinnnn! 🩷,” Steph Curry’s younger sister Sydel Curry wrote. “Let’s goooo,” Washington Wizards power forward Kyle Kuzma said.

“God said be fruitful and multiply 🥹🤣💯🍋🍇🍓👶🏽👶🏽👶🏽👶🏽 #babynumber4,” Kentavious captioned an Instagram carousel on Friday, sharing three pictures of himself and McKenzie smiling in Positano, Italy, ahead of the newborn’s arrival.

In August 2020, McKenzie spoke to E! News about what it was like raising three young kids without Kentavious when the COVID-19 pandemic caused his former team to be quarantined away from their families.

"My initial reaction was, how is this going to work? And when am I going to see you again?" she recalled thinking when she first got news that 22 NBA teams were instructed to remain in one of three Disney World resorts for up to three months.

"But because my husband plays for the Lakers, they're like, 'This is our year.' So they were so determined to make it work. I'm just trying to support from home and hold it down,” McKenzie said during the interview.

The outlet noted that at the time of the pandemic, basketball games were mainly limited to other quarantined teams and staff.

"Then I would like travel with my mom or a nanny," she added. "So I would need at least five spaces. I don't know how that's gonna work and I honestly don't even think they have it figured out yet because we haven't heard anything."

The NBA later released a statement saying that "player's families and longtime close personal friends" would be allowed in but only 17 guest rooms would be allocated to each team.

Kentavious and McKenzie, who first met in 2013, often show their family bond on social media.

“A Dad is a son’s first hero. I take pride in that! Happy Father’s Day to all the fathers!” the two-time NBA champion captioned a June upload of his wife and kids in a parade. While Kentavious opted to go shirtless for the first photo, the rest of the images showed his tribe wearing Denver Nuggets jerseys.

Caldwell-Pope won his first NBA championship ring with the Los Angeles Lakers in the 2019-20 season. The former Georgia Bulldog secured his second championship with the Denver Nuggets who took home the Larry O'Brien Championship Trophy in 2023.
