Who is Kelly’s wife-to-be, Shylyn?

She may not be Shylyn Oubre (yet), but she and fiancé Kelly announced their engagement in December last year.

There is little publicly available information about Shylyn, save for the fact that she reportedly dated Brooklyn Nets basketball player James Harden, before she dated Oubre, leading to a conflict of interests.

However, Oubre won that “battle” in June last year.

When is Kelly Oubre and Shylyn’s baby due?

Kelly hasn’t revealed when the couple’s baby is due.

However, given how visible the baby bump is, they could be past the half way point already.

That would mean Shylyn and Kelly Oubre’s baby is due in the autumn months. 

Will Kelly Oubre and Shylyn be husband and wife before then? Fans will have to wait and see.

How have fans reacted to news of the pregnancy?

While there are undoubtedly those who celebrated the announcement, Twitter and Instagram are awash with sad face emojis and cries of “it should have been me”.

The refrain among Oubre “stans” runs along the lines of, for example, “I should have been the baby mama”.

Meanwhile on Instagram, replies like “Pain.” and “That was supposed to be me” are among the top comments.

Some of these, along with comments like “I wish I were her” and synonymous phrases, have themselves picked up thousands of likes.
