It may be the offseason for the NBA but it was a big weekend for Portland Trail Blazers stars and their families. Both Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum announced life-changing events on their social media feeds over the last 48 hours, worthy of celebration.

Damian Lillard married his long time partner, Kay’La, in an intimate wedding ceremony in Santa Barbara, California. The event was a star-studded affair, with many former and current teammates and NBA players in attendance. Also among the guests were rappers Common and Snoop Dogg who performed at the reception.

Lillard posted wedding photos on his Instagram account on Monday.

Also on Monday, and also on Instagram, CJ McCollum announced that he and his wife, Dr. Elise McCollum, were expecting their first child.

McCollum shared 3 photos of he and his wife, showcasing her baby bump with the caption “Wedding vibes with Lil Mama”. The Trail Blazers official twitter followed the Instagram announcement with a congratulations and a re-post of a similar photo from the team’s beat writer, Casey Holdahl.

From all of us at Blazer’s Edge, a heartfelt congratulations to both families.
