Like many WNBA stars, Stewart plays overseas in the offseason for Dynamo Kursk in Russian Federation and led them to the EuroLeague Women's Final Four championship game on Sunday.

Stewart suffered the injury when she landed on the foot of fellow WNBA star Brittney Griner, who was playing for Russia's UMMC Ekaterinburg, after attempting a jump shot late in the second quarter. The nature and severity of the injury was not immediately known.

People were also delighted to see the expectant parents reference their baby using the term coined by royal fans. Asked if he'd toasted to the happy announcement yet, he replied, "Oh yes, absolutely".

In addition to her lauded collegiate and worldwide careers, Stewart is a two-time WNBA All-Star and was the 2018 league MVP, as well as the finals MVP. She won both the league and finals MVP awards while leading the Storm to the franchise's third WNBA title.

While no official diagnosis has been reported, unofficial sources cited by Q13 Fox fear that Stewart tore her right Achilles tendon - an injury that could take anywhere from six months to a year to heal. Some WNBA players also play overseas during the offseason to make more money. Her Dynamo Kursk squad fell 91-67 after she left the game.
