Tony Parker is getting ready to welcome his own little all-star.

The San Antonio Spur took to Twitter on Thursday to announce that he is expecting a son with fiancée Axelle Francine.

“Hey just wanted to say that I’m very happy today … me and my future wife going to have a baby boy!!!!” Parker wrote.

The French all-star NBA point guard, 31, and his French-journalist fiancée, also 31, have been together since 2011.

This will be the first child for Parker, who was previously married to Desperate Housewives actress Eva Longoria, whom he wed in a fairy-tale ceremony outside Paris in July 2007.

They separated in 2010 and were divorced in early 2011.

Congratulations on the wedding. I hope your wife knows she got a player for life and that’s no bull sh*tting. -tupac

Well, he cheated on Eva with a former teammate’s wife. Hope this wife will keep an eye out for that. I am actually a Spurs fan. And I know people can change. Cheaters just really annoy me. I hope they all can be happy and live as a strong family unit.

Congrats to them! Glad he is happy now.

I have mixed feelings about his “happiness.” He was happy with Eva Longoria until his cheating ways, with a teammate’s wife, broke her heart.

Once a cheater, always a cheater.

Escritora on

Not particularly impressed. I will wait to see if he can remain faithful to this woman, unlike his wife.

Lady on

That will be a handsome little boy, Congrats to them!

What’s with all these celebrities who are engaged and CAN wait to get married but just CAN’T wait to have kids? I don’t get it. Whatever, it’s their life.

Leslie on

Congrats to both of them

Mischa on

That explains Eva’s PDA with her ex this weekend. She’s hurt but doesn’t want anyone to know.

somewhere in the world, Eva Longoria is calling Mario Lopez so they can have a little girl time

Jennifer on

I think Eva Longoria is DEFINITELY better off without this loser Tony Parker! I felt so sorry for her; how could he cheat on such a beautiful woman like Eva?

JahBless on

Eva Longoria—step away from the ledge. We can talk about this.

fiona on

Mary Mills on

Tony Parker is a cheater. Watch out girl. Just ask Eva Longoria about your child’s father.

Gina on

Callie on

Take that Eva! I can’t stand Eva Longoria so this is good news

Me on

Good luck with the manwhore Axelle

Kate on

I hope she doesn’t mind sharing Tony’s penis with the rest of the world- those he hasn’t shared it with already that is…which doesn’t leave too many un-penised from what I understand…

I wish the best for Tony since I’m from San Antonio and a Spurs fan but he needs to grow up since he’s having a son. No more cheating Tony.

laylove on

hahahaha..married again…good luck, girl!

Congrats to them! Hoping he’ll pull a Mario Lopez and stop his womanizing ways now that he’s a father! :)

fna on

People want to talk about Tony but he’s not the one with issues. He’s found happiness while his ex can’t keep a relationship if she tried.

Nicky on

I think it’s funny that everybody call Tony a cheater when Eva had been seen with Eduardo Cruz weeks before her divorce was announced. Anyway, congratulations to Tony and Axelle. And I hope Eva will find the love of her life soon.
