Tony Parker has plenty of reasons to celebrate!

The San Antonio Spurs player, 31, and fiancée Axelle Francine welcomed their first child on Wednesday, April 30, a spokesperson for the team confirms.

Son Josh was born hours before his basketball player dad helped the Spurs beat the Dallas Mavericks 109-103 in Game 5 of the playoffs.

“He was really excited before the game. Obviously, he was really excited to have his son here and wanted to get this game really badly, not only for his son but for the situation and the timing of it,” Spurs forward Tim Duncan said.

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.
