Denver Nuggets player Marcus Camby and his wife, Eva, welcomed daughter Maya on May 9, but the little girl was not released from the hospital until mid-September. Maya, who was born premature at 24 weeks, weighed only 1 pound, 5 ounces at birth. Since then, she has grown to weigh 8 pounds. The 33-year-old revealed that his daughter has a nickname from workers at the hospital,
[Hospital workers] were calling her ‘Miracle Baby.’ She was a kid born so early, and to make it out of the hospital.
Now that Maya is home, Marcus plans to turn his focus back to basketball.
She’s home and she’s doing a whole lot better. It was a tough summer. . . I thank Godshe’s doing well right now and I can focus on basketball.
The couple also have a daughter, Milan.
