Retired NBA star Chris Webber, 44, has become a dad after what he says was “many years of trying.”
Webber posted a picture of himself holding twin newborns on Instagram earlier this week. He says he and his wife, Erika, suffered “more than a few heartbreaks” on their way to becoming parents, but it was worth the wait.
Erika Webber posted a family picture and wrote, “7 years waiting for our family to grow, and we were double blessed. Never underestimate the power of prayer, even when `they’ tell you it’s impossible.”

Grateful… 7 years waiting for our family to grow, and we were double blessed. Never underestimate the power of prayer, even when "they" tell you it's impossible… All in his time. Thank you to all of our family and friends and even strangers who shared our journey and kept us encouraged.❤❤😘
The couple didn’t say when the babies were born.
Webber played for the Sacramento Kings and four other teams over a 15-year NBA career.
