Erik and Nikki Spoelstra Expecting Their First Child

Miami Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra had himself a quality 47th birthday on Wednesday. On the court, Hassan Whiteside returned and the Heat snapped their three-game losing streak, and off the court, he and his wife, Nikki, announced they’re expecting their first child:

Erik told the media pregame that it’s going to be a boy (via The Miami Herald):

“We’re really excited about it,” Spoelstra said with a big smile. “Everybody in this building has known for a while. Our friends and family have known.”

Erik and Nikki, of course, got married last July at the Vizcaya Museum and Gardens in Miami. Nikki danced for the Heat for three seasons from 2005-2008.
