Kapono, Wife Expecting Twin Girls

The Lakers extended family is about to get a bit bigger.

Forward Jason Kapono and his wife Ashley, whom he met at UCLA, are expecting twin baby girls on Tuesday at Cedars-Sinai Hospital.

Kapono said the girls would be named Isla and Campbell, and that he could not be more excited to be a new dad. Kapono’s family is from the Lakewood area, about 25 miles south and east of the Lakers practice facility, while his wife has brothers that live in Los Angeles as well, providing a strong family support crew for the twins.

With the encouraging approval of coach/father Mike Brown, Kapono will miss L.A.’s Tuesday evening game against Phoenix to be with his family, and remains uncertain about whether or not he’ll be able to join the team for the Wednesday back-to-back in Utah.
