(Yahoo!) - Sure, it was a bummer for the Knicks that they were bested in the playoffs, but it's also freed up Amar'e Stoudemire to spend time with his new son.
The 30-year-old NBA star shared his baby news on Wednesday, tweeting:
We are proud to announce we added a healthy baby boy to the Stoudemire team. Alexis and the baby are doing great. #Blessed— Amar'e Stoudemire (@Amareisreal) May 22, 2013
And while the pro baller didn't reveal the baby's name, trust that it begins with the letter "A." He and his wife, Alexis, are already parents to daughters Ar'e and Assata, and son Amar'e Jr.
Baby Stat arrived just in time for his parents’ wedding. The longtime couple officially tied the knot in a low-key affair last December (on 12-12-12 to be exact), but they are planning a larger celebration this summer.
Sounds like the family photos on the big day will be even sweeter.

The daughter of late rapper Notorious B.I.G. is paying homage to her father through her new clothing line. T'yanna Wallace rolled out her "Notoriouss" brand of clothing Tuesday to coincide with what would have been Biggie's 41st birthday.
Along with a link to the brand's website, T'yanna wished her father happy birthday in a Twitter post.

The company's website shows a number of available T-shirts with the "Notoriouss" name. One of the designs includes images of guns, a choice that may raise eyebrows considering that her father died as a result of gun violence in 1997.
Notorious B.I.G. - born Christopher Wallace - was shot in drive-by shooting in Los Angeles on March 9th, 1997.

Rapper and actor Chris "Ludacris" Bridges is clearing the air about why he uses his full name as well as his rap moniker when starring in films.
On Wednesday's episode of ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live," Ludacris revealed that he's been going by the name since he penned his first rap lyric at age nine. The rapper admitted that in his first song he had to lie about his age because it contained the rhyme "I'm cool, I'm bad, I might be ten, but I can't survive without my girlfriend." When host Jimmy Kimmel asked him how he even knew what the word "ludicrous" meant at age nine, Luda admitted that he had to look it up in the dictionary.
Ludacris also touched on his tradition of buying a vehicle from each "Fast and Furious" film he's starred in. While he bought cars from "2 Fast 2 Furious" and "Fast Five," Luda admitted that he had to break his custom. He said he refrained from buying one of the new film's vehicles because they shot the movie in London, where the steering column is on the right side. He says the change would likely confuse him. "Fast & Furious 6" also stars Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Dwayne Johnson and Jordana Brewster. The film hits theaters this weekend.
