We’re both excited to announce that we are expecting our first child.

It’s hard to put into words just how happy we are.

Gary Ablett Jr

We’ve known this for a few months now but decided that we wanted to keep it between just the two of us and our families for as long as we could.

It’s obviously such a special and unique time and we really wanted to make sure that we made the most of it.

We’re really looking forward to parenthood and everything that comes with it. – Gary & Jordan Ablett


Jordan already knew but waited a little while to tell me because she knows how much I love surprises and wanted to tell me on my birthday.

It was the day after a game and we were staying at Crown.

She knows that the way to my heart is through NBA, so she gave me a box that said ‘Introducing the Greatest Recruit of All Time’.

I had no idea what it was and when I opened it, inside was the tiniest Michael Jordan onesie, a little beanie and little runners.


It took me a little moment to process what I was looking at but when it hit me, it hit me hard.

I was an emotional wreck. The greatest gift of all time! – Gary Ablett
