Philadelphia 76ers star Joel Embiid has been keeping busy so far in the offseason. He has starred in two commercials, he has released his debut shoe, and now his girlfriend Ann de Paula has given birth to their new child.
Embiid announced on Instagram the birth of their child, a son, whose name is Arthur Elijah De Paula Embiid according to the 26-year old big man. He also teased in the caption that there are more babies on the way. He says he would like 11 more children, but he is losing that battle so far. Knowing how much of a jokester the All-Star is, it’s hard to figure if he is being serious or not, but congratulations are in order either way.
Embiid has always been a great story as he has worked through adversity throughout his life to get where he is at this point. To welcome a new baby boy in the world is another blessing in his life.
