Big Baller Brand's next step might be launching a baby apparel line.

TMZ Sports reported Wednesday Los Angeles Lakers guard Lonzo Ball and his girlfriend, Denise Garcia, are expecting their first child. The report indicates Garcia is four months pregnant, but no sources knew whether the baby is a boy or a girl. 

Ball, 20, is averaging 10.2 points, 7.1 rebounds and 7.1 assists in 36 games this season. He has missed the Lakers' last 11 contests because of a knee injury and has no timetable for his return.

Garcia and Ball have been together since their time at Chino Hills High School in California. She has been prominently featured on the family's Ball in the Family reality show and is part of the Big Baller Brand women's line.

The Ball family has not confirmed her pregnancy at this time, though odds are there will be some pageantry involved when they do. LaVar Ball, the patriarch of the BBB empire, has never been one to shy away from a branding opportunity or grandiose announcement.
