Congrats Coach!

NCAA Womens Basketball: Pac-12 Conference Tournament-Colorado vs California James Snook-USA TODAY Sports

After a Saturday Cal women’s basketball practice, coach Lindsay Gottlieb had some great news for her team. A new teammate is joining the Bears!

Congrats to Coach G on becoming a Momma G!

More from Janie McCauley at the Associated Press:

After the sly reveal, Gottlieb got hugs and cheers from players — some stunned, some already suspicious given Gottlieb was sick often during the first trimester. She held a bouquet of flowers in her right hand from director of operations Jill Culbertson and held her left hand over her belly.

"Stop! That's not funny! Is this a joke?" senior KC Waters hollered from the back row.

"I called it! I called it!" Mi'Cole Cayton yelled, the freshman guard repeatedly pointing at her chest.

"I'm going to be a big sister!" Chen responded, noting she and the baby might even share a May birthday. "I'm so excited!"

Also, a rather sweet note on Election Day.
