Dallas Mavericks’ star Dirk Nowitzki, who dated Sybille Gerer for 10 years before finally going their separate ways in 2002, said he would someday like to be a father: “I surely want to start a family and have kids, but I cannot imagine it happening before I become 30.” Well, Dirk is now 30 and it looks like he’s going to be a daddy – with Cristal Taylor, who is or was his fiance.

On Friday, Taylor altered her version. She said a jail official asked her how long it had been since her last menstrual cycle, to which she replied she couldn’t remember. “That’s when they said, ‘I want you to urinate in the cup for me.’ ”
On Monday, Taylor said she believed she was about 4
