Jalen was not named in the post, but another NBA star gave him a shoutout in the comment section.

Washington Wizards star Kyle Kuzma extended his congratulations to the couple, writing, "It's all love, family! @jalen @drayamichele,” per New York Post. Similarly, fans of the Draya sent their well-wishes. However, others were quick to voice their disapproval, citing various reasons for their negative reactions. Some slammed Draya for her relationship with Jalen, who is 17 years her junior.

Another wrote, “Jalen Green played just as much of a role as Draya did. They both made a choice. These young men be crashin' out over a high school crush.”

That said, congrats to this couple on their brand new bundle of joy!
