Does Dwight Howard have a fifth baby on the way? It appears so! The NBA player's girlfriend was spotted at the Lakers Game in San Antonio looking "very pregnant, like late second trimester pregnant," according to MediaTakeOut.
Christine Vest, Howard's newest baby mama, is a "Singer/Songwriter/Musician/College BBall Coach/Volunteer/Child Whisperer" as well as the "PROUD backbone of a GREAT man," according to her website.
With Dwight Howard's fifth child on the way, will Christine Vest be moving in to the NBA player's Bel Air mansion, or one of the other homes he's had floating around in the past couple of years?
The Los Angeles Lakers Center has been leasing a house in Bel Air since moving to the West Coast from Orlando, where he played for the Orlando Magic. The house sits on Mulholland Drive overlooking the Hollywood Hills.
According to BornRich, Howard owns three other homes -- though as is often the case with celebrity properties, the ownership details are a little hazy. Howard once owned a lavish Seminole County mansion in Orlando, which be bought for $7,780,000 in 2007, but it's possible that he has since sold that property.
Howard has also owned a beautiful $8 million mansion in Windermere, Florida. CelebrityNetWorth reported that Howard bought the mansion at the peak of the housing bubble, so was likely to hold onto the property for a while in hopes of better market conditions. The Windermere home is said to be modeled after a 15th century French chateau with a view of a private lake.
And Dwight Howard was rumored to have purchased a $20 million mansion in Newport Beach, California after signing on with the Lakers. This was later called into question, and Howard has since been seen living in the rented Bel Air mansion, so it's pretty hard to pin down whether or not the house is his.
Indeed, with so many different sources claiming Dwight Howard is the real owner of so many different houses, things get a little confusing.
Anyway, with Dwight Howard's fifth baby possibly on the way, it's nice to know he's got space to house mother and child. Then again, we can't be sure what's going to happen.
After all, if Christine Vest is really carrying Dwight Howard's fifth child, place in the baller's home would be a mighty fine accomplishment -- considering the fact that most of his other baby mamas have yet to be acknowledged!
It's widely known that Howard has several other baby mamas, though he has only acknowledged one of them: Former Basketball Wives star Royce Reed, who gave birth to Howard's son Braylon in 2007. Reed and Howard are currently in a legal battle over the custody of their son.
Howard's other baby mamas are rumored to be Hope Alexa and Tiffany Render, each of whom reportedly had a child of Howard's in late 2010. They have also claimed that Howard has other children, but they don't give any more names.
Wow! Houses, children, ex-girlfriends ... it's hard to pin down what does and doesn't belong to this guy.
Let's hope things are a little less hazy with Dwight Howard's fifth child and Christina Vest. We'll be keeping an eye on this situation -- it would be nice to see a happy family settled into a lovely home!
