He’s the NBA’s MVP. And he’s now an MVD. Most valuable dad – at least to his new child.
Giannis tweeted out a picture of his new child Liam. Mariah, his girlfriend, is the mother.
The tweet does not show the new baby’s whole face, perhaps as a way of protecting the child’s identity.

There were no initial reports of complications with the birth.
With the length of the season, the odds can be pretty good that an NBA player can have to take time off after becoming a dad.
“You should only imagine for a guy like Giannis, what a different perspective it’s going to give him…he just witnessed a birth,” said WTMJ Bucks insider and FS Wisconsin analyst Steve Novak. “He’s going to have a son. Basketball has always been the center of (his) universe and then you go ‘There’s a lot more important out there.’ “
