"Iverson's mom awaits birth of twins"
By Michael Klein
Inquirer Columnist

The Iverson household is awaiting the patter of little Reeboks again.

But it's not Sixers guard Allen Iverson and his wife, Tawanna, who are expecting.

It's AI's mother, Ann Iverson, 44. She is very pregnant with twin boys and was in Texas on Friday awaiting their birth.

The babies' father is George "Jack" Jackson, a mild-mannered Army veteran who is Ann's longtime beau. The two knew each other years ago and reconnected in the mid-1990s.

Ann Iverson was 15 when Allen was born in 1975. His biological father was Allen Broughton, who abandoned Ann and Allen when his son was 3. Ann also has two daughters:Brandy, born in 1979, and Iiesha,
born in 1991; their father is Michael Freeman.

If you're counting the leaves on the family tree, the twins will become uncles of Allen and Tawanna Iverson's children - daughter
Tiaura, 8, and sons Allen Jr., 5, and Isaiah, born Aug. 8.

"God has been good to me"
Ann Iverson counts her blessings in this time of trial

NORFOLK, Va. - Mister Allen Iverson is a little more than 2 weeks old. He is the "personal business" Allen Iverson was attending to while the 76ers were in Salt Lake City and Dallas during the weekend.

Mister Allen Iverson, the Sixers star's little brother, was born Oct. 3 to Allen's mother, Ann. Allen's older son, Allen II, is
Deuce. Mister Allen Iverson already has been designated as "Trey."

"Born Oct. 3, Allen wears No. 3, so the baby had to be Trey," Ann said cheerily.

"He's Mister, because, back in the day, when our people picked cotton and such, the men were always called by their last name. I
didn't want that for him. Then I wanted his middle name to be after someone famous. Allen's famous."

Ann Iverson is 44. She hadn't turned 16 when Allen was born. She sat in a front-row seat last night, directly across from the Sixers' bench, and said she was grateful for what she has. She gave birth to
twin boys Oct. 3. Only Mister Allen survived.

"God took one and gave me one," Ann said. "I'm blessed. I remember
waking up, seeing my new son. God has been good to me."'God has been good to me'
Ann Iverson counts her blessings in this time of trial

There were Allen Iverson sightings all over the Tidewater area during the weekend. At a high school football game Friday night. At
a college game Saturday. At a lively party Sunday night at a restaurant not far from the Sixers' hotel. But Ann said "Allen was
where he needed to be when it meant the most."

"I have to thank [Sixers president/general manager] Billy King and the coaches for letting him come here," Ann said. "We sat and talked and reminisced. Allen was counting the baby's fingers and toes,
getting real emotional. It was important to us to be together."

Everything, though, has a price. Ann agreed with a suggestion that people weren't sure whether to offer congratulations or condolences, but she insisted on being among the 8,136 fans who came to revel in
Allen's homecoming. Allen was a football and basketball star at Bethel High in Hampton, leading the football team to a Virginia state championship.

Iverson was on the Sixers' bench for the entire first quarter, in part, coach Randy Ayers said, because the team had added several new plays and nuances. Iverson also was not with his teammates at the
morning shootaround.

"I had no problem with Allen coming down here," Ayers said before the game. "If I had, I wouldn't have let him come. He came here to take care of business, and he did that."

Iverson entered the game at the start of the second quarter and
didn't come out until just 39.9 seconds remained.

If Iverson had been uncomfortable with his family's situation, he said: "My mom made it a lot easier, because, after losing a child and coming here, I thought she wouldn't be too upbeat. But I guess
that's how much she loves me."

"The whole time I was here," Allen said, "she was upbeat. It kind of
seemed like it didn't even happen. The biggest thing is, God gave
her one baby. Another one went to a better place. It's kind of bittersweet."

Ann said she knew she was supposed to be resting, but she felt she needed to be at the game. Allen already was looking ahead to a time when Deuce, his 2-month-old son Isaiah, and his new brother Trey
were "going to kind of grow up together."

"Hopefully, I'll be able to play long enough that my little brother can come to a game and see how the fans treat me, and be part of that."
