TORONTO (CP) -- Vince Carter is going to be a dad.

The Toronto Raptors star guard/forward and wife Ellen Rucker are expecting their first child, Carter's spokesperson Jeff Scott confirmed Monday.

The baby is due in early June.

Carter and Rucker, a chiropractor and his college sweetheart at North Carolina, were married July 3 in Palm Beach, Fla.

Carter and Rucker had initially parted company after university but reunited at the wedding of Washington Wizards star Antawn Jamison, Carter's good friend and former teammate with the Tar Heels. Jamison married Rucker's younger sister Ione.

Carter spent his second straight game on the Raptors' injured list when the team hosted the Miami Heat on Sunday. Carter has a strained left Achilles tendon and must sit out another three games.
