Shelden Williams and Candace Parker

Parker married one of the few men who doesn't have to look up to her in the former Duke man. After drifting through seven NBA teams, Williams recently signed with French team Elan Chalon, while Parker has been a standout player for the Los Angeles Sparks since she became the WNBA's first rookie MVP in 2008. Either way, their daughter Lailaa has some serious basketball genes.
