It's a boy for Tony Parker and his soon-to-be wife Axelle Francine. The couple welcomed their first child, whom they have named Josh, on Wednesday, April 30, a spokesman for the San Antonio Spurs confirmed.

Parker, 31, and the French journalist announced they were expecting a baby last October. "Hey just wanted to say that I'm very happy today," the NBA player tweeted at the time. "Me and my future Wife going to have a Baby Boy!!!!"

The new parents first began dating in 2011. Back in June 2013, Parker revealed that he and Francine were engaged. While telling a fan what he likes to do during his downtime, he tweeted: "Spend time with my fiancè."

Parker was previously married to actress Eva Longoria for three years. The pair ended their marriage in 2010 and finalized their divorce in January 2011 following Parker's public sexting scandal with Erin Barry, the wife of his former Spurs teammate Brent Barry.

The NBA player's baby joy comes as Parker leads the San Antonio Spurs to a 3-2 lead in the first round of the NBA playoffs. Maybe baby Josh will be good luck for the hopeful champion!
