National Basketball All-Star Kobe Bryant and his wife, Vanessa, are expecting the couple's second child in May, his agent Rob Pelinka said Tuesday.
The Bryants have a daughter, Natalia, who turns 3 in January.
The story was first reported by the "Entertainment Tonight" celebrity news television show.
The 27-year-old Bryant is beginning his 10th season with the Los Angeles Lakers.
The announcement comes more than two years after Bryant was accused of rape by a 19-year-old woman. The case was withdrawn 14 months ago and Bryant, who claimed the sex was consensual, settled a civil suit filed by the woman in March, AP reports.
