NBA All-Star and outspoken Christian Damian Lillard welcomed the birth of his first child this week.


Lillard plays point guard for the Portland Trail Blazers and missed a game against the Memphis Grizzlies to be at home for the birth.



Lillard announced the birth of his son, Damian Jr., in a post on Instagram.






Lillard grew up in Oakland, California, but went to college at Weber State University in Ogden, Utah. In 2012, he was drafted 6th overall by the Portland Trail Blazers.


Lillard wears the number 0 as a jersey number to highlight his journey from Oakland, to Ogden, to Oregon.



Lillard graduated from Weber State with a degree in professional sales and is an aspiring hip-hop musician to go along with his basketball talents.


His favorite bible verse is Psalms 37: 1-3, and he has it tattooed on his left arm.


Congratulations to his whole family as they welcome their newest member!
