SAN ANTONIO, May 1 (UPI) -- Tony Parker and fiancée Axelle Francine welcomed their first child on Wednesday.

The baby is a boy, and the new parents have named him Josh. The couple announced their pregnancy last October.

The new dad, who plays basketball for the San Antonio Spurs, helped his team to victory against the Dallas Mavericks that same night. Teammate Manu Ginobili also recently had a child; his third son, Luca, was born April 21.

Parker was previously married to actress Eva Longoria from 2007-2011. He and Francine began dating soon after, and got engaged in June 2013. The couple are both French nationals: Parker was raised in France, and Francine is a French journalist.
