New Jersey Devils goaltender Martin Brodeur has welcomed his fifth child, and first with wife Genevieve. The couple’s son Maxime Philippe arrived shortly after 12 noon on Monday, November 23rd, weighing in at just over 8 lbs.
“It went really well,” the proud papa reports. “A big, healthy baby.” Maxime’s name was chosen carefully according to the French-Canadian born Martin, who notes that he’s heard numerous mispronunciations of his own moniker.
“Anything they could say in French and English pretty easy. I figured [Maxime's] pretty easy, and all my other kids are the same way.”
That’s not all baby boy will have in common with his big siblings Anthony, 14, twins William and Jeremy, 13, and Anabelle Antoinette, 7. Crediting assistant equipment manager Alex Abasto, Martin reveals that his newest addition already has his first initial on dad’s hockey helmet, just like the older Brodeur children.
Anthony, William, Jeremy and Anabelle are Martin’s children with ex-wife Melanie Dubois. Martin and Genevieve were married in 2008.
