Kyrie Irving Welcomes A Baby Girl

Kyrie Irving is feeling especially blessed this Thanksgiving holiday.

The Cleveland Cavaliers baller welcomed a baby girl on Tuesday and shared the exciting news with a heartfelt post on his Instagram page.

Azurie Elizabeth Irving 11/23/15

35 hours of labor from her great mother and she came into the world to bring a shine to my world that I never thought was possible. I love you so much, and my heart grew the first time I felt your heart against mine.

Mommy, I gave her your name because I know you will bless her and our family the same way you blessed me. I love you.

Here’s the original post:

Irving’s mother, Elizabeth, passed away suddenly at the age of 29 when Kyrie was just four years old. She was diagnosed with sepsis, a body inflammation caused by an infection.

Kyrie is currently recovering after undergoing surgery on his fractured kneecap.

Congratulations to the proud papa and we wish him a speedy recovery.
