Brittney Griner video bombs Diana Taurasi's postgame interview after the Mercury clinch a trip to the WNBA finals. (0:55)

PHOENIX -- Diana Taurasi made it back home in time to see her wife Penny Taylor give birth to a baby girl -- the couple's second child.

Taurasi flew back to Phoenix from Las Vegas immediately after helping the Mercury beat the Las Vegas Aces in Game 5 of their semifinal series. She had 14 of her 24 points in the fourth quarter of the 87-84 win on Friday night.

The WNBA's all-time leading scorer playfully said to Taylor in a postgame interview to "hold it in, babe."

Taurasi had a plane waiting for her for the short flight and then took a car straight to the hospital to see the birth. Taylor gave birth at 4:24 a.m. local time.
