Just two months after Shine My Crown reported that the daughter of a Tampa Bay Buccaneers player died following a drowning incident, he and his wife have announced that they are expecting another girl.

In an Instagram post, Jordanna Barrett, the wife of Shaquil Barrett, shared an image of a positive pregnancy test and said their daughter Allanah Ray was set to come to the world in February 2024.

“A few weeks after our sweet girl’s heaven day, Shaquil and I found out,” Jordanna wrote. “Arrayah had a special hand in picking this sweet girl to add to our family,” adding, “we are so beyond blessed, so beyond grateful that God chose to give us another little girl!”

She continued: “We miss our Arrayah every second of every day, but I rest in knowing she’s going to be the best big sister angel to little miss Allanah! Arrayah has given me hope. She has changed so many lives with the short 2 years she blessed this earth,” she wrote. “God works in such mysterious ways, but I will never ever doubt his plans for my life.”

At the time of Arrayah’s passing, police said that she fell into a pool in the family’s backyard at around 9:30. She later drowned and was rushed to a local hospital where she was pronounced dead.

The Super Bowl champion and his wife have three other children.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with Shaq, [his wife] Jordanna and the entire Barrett family during this unimaginably difficult time,” Buccaneers officials said in a statement. “While no words can provide true comfort at a time such as this, we offer our support and love as they begin to process this very profound loss of their beloved Arrayah.”

At the time, police said that an investigation was ongoing but they did not suspect foul play.
