WNBA's Maya Moore marries Jonathan Irons, the man she helped free from prison

WNBA star Maya Moore revealed that she has married Jonathan Irons , the man she helped free from prison this year after a wrongful conviction.

Appearing together on "Good Morning America," Moore, 31, said Wednesday that she and Irons, 40, got married a couple of months ago.

"We wanted to announce today that we are super excited to continue the work that we've been doing together, but doing it as a married couple," Moore said.

The Missouri attorney general's office unsuccessfully appealed the judge's decision and the lead prosecutor in St. Charles County decided against a retrial.

Irons, now a justice reform activist , said in the interview that he first proposed while he was still in prison, but didn't want to "trap" her from fulfilling her dreams of becoming a wife and a mother.

Moore, who is sitting out from playing basketball for the second straight season, has won four titles with the Minnesota Lynx.
