The Sixers Joel Embiid and his longtime girlfriend Anne de Paula have welcomed a baby boy.

The Sixers star thanked his girlfriend for giving him the greatest gift of all. He even had dad jokes saying, “first of 11 or more?”

“Arthur Elijah De Paula Embiid 👶We are so blessed and fortunate to welcome our little boy in this family. First of 11 or more? Trying to convince her but I’m not winning so far. I’m just trying to build a soccer team but for real I’m so excited for the future and my life has a new meaning. Kudos to @annedepaula_ for being so strong and giving me the Greatest Gift our life can offer #GodisGood,” he wrote.
