“Hi!! Looks like my exhausting day of nesting was a sign I’d go into labor and we had a baby today! He’s just 11 days early but we were not expecting this!” she posted with the photo.

Earlier on Sunday, the Jazz announced the point guard’s departure from the NBA bubble in Florida to be with his wife. Elijah’s original due date was set for August 27.
