Chris Webber's Family and Children
Webber and his wife tried a lot to have kids. But unfortunately, they could not for eight years because of Dates' fertility problems.
She had uterine fibroids, which according to Mayo Clinic, are "noncancerous growths of the uterus that often appear during childbearing years."

They welcomed their children, son Mayce and daughter Elle, into their family on June 5, 2017. Webber took to Twitter to announce the birth of his kids.
He posted a picture holding the twins and opened up about how difficult it was for them in the past. He said they had "more than a few heartbreaks" before welcoming the children.
So thankful. After many years of trying and more than a few heartbreaks we were blessed with these little ones. Thank you @mrserikawebber pic.twitter.com/6Prf5WDWtj — Chris Webber (@realchriswebber) June 4, 2017
He thanked his wife as well for blessing their family with twins. He also took to Instagram to post about the birth of his kids.
There, he said that after waiting for all these years, the duo was "double blessed." He also noted never to "underestimate the power of prayer" even if people tell things are impossible. However, the post has since been deleted.
The former NBA player talked about their struggle in an interview with Black Doctor.
He gushed about his kids and said it was "the best feeling in the world" to have them. Even though he did not get sleep after the twins, he did not mind it since the NBA star had a big family as a child where he did babysitting.
