San Antonio Spurs' Tony Parker (L) drives to the net on Miami Heat's Chris Bosh during the first quarter in Game 4 of their NBA Finals basketball series in San Antonio, Texas June 13, 2013.

Tony Parker welcomed his first child, a son, with fiancee Axelle Francine on Wednesday, April 30.

Parker, 31, and the French journalist first announced that they were expecting back in October.

"Hey just wanted to say that I'm very happy today," the NBA star posted to Twitter at the time. "Me and my future Wife going to have a Baby Boy!!!!"

The proud new parents named their newborn son Josh, according to The San Antonio Express-News. On the same day, Parker, who is the point guard for the San Antonio Spurs, went on to play compete against the Dallas Mavericks in Game 5 of their first-round series, which is tied at two games apiece.

Meanwhile, Parker and Francine have been dating since 2011. The basketball star first announced the engagement during Q & A on Twitter after a fan asked what Parker does in his spare time.

"Spend time with my fiancee," he wrote.

Parker later told his Twitter followers that honeymoon plans include "The Maldives, Tahiti and a safari anywhere in Africa." However, the engagement came as a surprise since Parker had just sworn off of remarrying following his high-profile divorce from Eva Longoria.

Eva Longoria, famous Latina Producer of "Devious Maids," also starred in the steamy show "Desperate Housewives."

"I just got out of [a marriage], so no," he said, according to Us Weekly in 2011. "Not right now."

The Spurs star split from Longoria in 2010 following his public sexting scandal with Erin Barry, the wife of his former Spurs teammate Brent Barry. Fortunately, following the finalization of their divorce in 2011, Longoria appears to have forgiven her ex-husband as she still publicly supports his NBA team. Native to Texas, Longoria frequently cheers on the Spurs via Twitter.

Furthermore, the "Devious Maids" actress has moved on and in a new relationship with Jose Antonio Baston. On Thursday, the pair were spotted dining together at Miami's Salt and Pepper. Longoria recently revealed that she is "very happy" with Baston, the president of Latin America's largest media company Televisa, while speaking to Ellen DeGeneres.
