APA spokesperson Jeanette Lee “The Black Widow” and her husband, George Breedlove, are eagerly awaiting the birth of their sixth child. APA was the first to announce this exciting news! The couple announced the great news at the WPBA San Diego Classic in Alpine, Calif. The baby will be the first natural-birth child for Lee and Breedlove. With a due date in mid-September, Lee will continue to play in professional tournaments through roughly mid-July. From that point until at least mid-November, Lee will be at home on maternity leave.
“George and I are so excited to welcome another child to our growing family,” said Lee. “This is really a wonderful surprise for us. Nothing gives me greater joy than being a mom and to be able to bring a life into this world is something I will always cherish.”
In October, Lee and Breedlove welcomed their first biological child together, Chloe Angelee Breedlove, who was born to a surrogate mother. They are also the parents of an adopted child, Cheyenne, and a foster child, John Kang, as well as Breedlove’s two daughters from a previous marriage, Morgan and Olivia.
“Jeanette and George are a perfect example of the success of a modern blended family driven by faith-based values and strong parenting,” said Tom George, Octagon’s Senior Vice President. “Their love and devotion for all of their children is apparent and I am so glad that they have been blessed with the opportunity to give birth naturally. It is something Jeanette has always hoped for.”
Lee has a history of back problems. She was diagnosed with scoliosis at the age of 13 and subsequently underwent a lengthy and complicated orthopedic surgical procedure to stem the worsening of her condition. Metal rods and other instruments were attached to her spine in order to fuse vertebrae together.
In her 17 years as a professional, Lee has fashioned one of the most illustrious careers of any billiards player in history, including claiming more than 30 national and international titles. Formerly ranked as the No. 1 player in the world, she has been named “WPBA Sportsperson of the Year” as well as “Player of the Year” by both Billiards Digest and Pool & Billiards Magazine. Consistently ranked as one of the sport’s most powerful people by Billiards Digest, Lee was a 2001 World Games gold medalist and 2004 International Trick Shot champion in addition to taking home back-to-back Empress Cup titles in 2008 and 2009. Selected as one of the “Sexiest Female Athletes in the World” by ESPN, she has appeared in television and print, including features in Esquire and on HBO Real Sports, The Today Show, The Late Show with David Letterman and Live with Regis & Kelly.
