On Tuesday, WNBA star Maya Moore announced on Good Morning America that she and her husband, Jonathan Irons, had their first child. 

Jonathan Hughston Irons Jr. was born in February.  

This is exciting news for a couple that has been through so much over the years, and as a result, so many people are celebrating Moore and Irons this Tuesday. 

Irons was tried and convicted for a burglary and shooting he didn't commit at the young age of 16. Moore became friends with him through a prison ministry in Missouri.

Moore spent years fighting for Irons before his conviction was overturned in July of 2020. 

On the night that Irons was released from prison, he proposed to Moore. 

ESPN produced a 30 for 30 on Moore and Irons' story. It was titled "Breakaway."
