There was plenty to celebrate for the Portland Trail Blazers and its fan base over the holiday weekend.

Not only did Damian Lillard and his longtime girlfriend Kay’La Hanson tie the knot on Saturday, but his backcourt mate CJ McCollum also made a life-changing announcement. 

McCollum took to his Instagram to share the news that he and his wife Elise are expecting their first child.

While posting photos of he and Elise attending the Lillard wedding, McCollum wrote the caption “Wedding vibes with Lil Mama.”


CJ and his wife got married last Sept. at a beautiful Oregon vineyard after getting engaged in Sept. of 2018.


Just like Lillard and his now wife, the McCollums also met at college. Elise has told stories about how she would rebound for CJ during his workouts at Lehigh.

Now from college to parenthood, the McCollums are proving to be a power couple of Rip City. 

Congrats to CJ and Elise on their growing family!
