Nick Young is a second time dad! The NBA plater announced via Instagram Friday that he and his ex Keonna Green welcomed their second child together, a baby girl named Navi.
Young broke the news by sharing a sweet photo of his baby girl grabbing his finger. He captioned the photo with the prayer hand and heart emojis, adding “#BabyNaviYoung.” According to TMZ, the Los Angeles Lakers player has been at the hospital since Wednesday. The outlet reported that he rushed to be by Green’s side immediately after the Lakers’ opening game.
Young and Green are already parents to Nick Jr., 4. It was announced in June that the former couple was expecting a second baby together. The news came around the time that Australian rapper Iggy Azalea announced that she and Young had called off their engagement due to his cheating. In several Twitter posts, Azalea told fans that she didn’t know Green was pregnant until E! News reported on it. However, she said she did catch him bringing other women into their home while she away for work.
In an interview with Us Weekly in July, Green admitted that the pregnancy came as a surprise to both her and Young. Green also revealed that she and Young started seeing each other again three months after the athlete proposed to the “Team” rapper. “I don’t know what was going on in his household [with Azalea], but me and Nick have lots of history. It wasn’t a secret on my end. I didn’t feel guilty because I was in love with a man, and I’m pretty sure I’m not the only woman,” she said.
Last month, Azalea dished on her tumultuous breakup with Young, telling People magazine that the split caused her to push back the release date of her forthcoming album, “Digital Distortion.” “I needed a lot of time,” she said. “I mean, you wake up one morning and your fiancé is having a baby with someone else, you’re going to need some time right?”
