Glory Johnson and Brittney Griner are in the midst of closing one chapter of their lives just in time for another one to begin.

The WNBA players are still married after an Arizona judge rejected Griner's request for annulment, People confirms.

Griner told the magazine, "I respect the judge's decision. We are moving forward with the divorce on a 28-day marriage."

Meanwhile, Johnson said that she was "thankful the annulment was rejected because an act of marriage did occur."

She continued, "Together we made life changing decisions which impacted our lives collectively, and we both should be held responsible for those decisions."

And while they go through the judicial system in an attempt to end their marriage, Johnson is also focusing on giving birth to the former couple's first child.

The athlete posted a shot on Instagram hinting that a gender reveal was taking place later today.

Less than one month after the pair tied the knot at the Pointe Hilton Tapatio Cliffs Resort in Phoenix, the two announced that they were expecting a baby together.

And as if that wasn't enough news for one couple, the two also made headlines when they were both arrested after getting in a domestic dispute two weeks before tying the knot, which caused them to be suspended by the WNBA.

Johnson expressed her sadness over the split in a recent interview, saying, "I am truly really saddened by the recent turn of events and was not expecting to have our marriage end so abruptly. I am ready to begin focusing on my health, pregnancy and am going to remain in Tulsa to continue to build my relationship with the Tulsa Shock organization, and my teammates. I appreciate the support of my fans, family and loved ones and look forward to returning to the basketball court as soon as I can."
