Derrick Rose was asked to comment on a report Tuesday by Sun-Times columnist Stella Foster that he and his longtime girlfriend, Mieka Blackman ­Reese, are expecting their first child.

“That’s my personal life,” Rose said. “I think I need a little bit of privacy to myself.”

Rose then apologized to the television reporter for not answering the question.
