SEATTLE — The four-time WNBA Champion Seattle Storm and forward Mikiah “Kiki” Herbert Harrigan released the following statements today:
Harrigan: “I’m excited to announce that I am expecting! I’m very much looking forward to motherhood and starting a family with my boyfriend, Stanford. While I am disappointed to miss the 2021 WNBA season, I appreciate the supportive environment the Storm family has provided for me. I will be cheering on the Storm from the sidelines and wish the whole organization great success this season. See you next year!!”
Storm General Manager Talisa Rhea: “We are so happy for Kiki and her family as she starts this exciting new chapter of her life and look forward to welcoming her back in 2022.”
