AceShowbiz - Congratulations are in order for Nick Young and his on-again girlfriend Keonna Green. The lovebirds welcomed their third child together, a baby boy named Nyce Amaru Young, on Thursday, June 27. Further details about the baby are still unknown as of now, but the basketball player has taken to his Instagram account to share the first glimpse of the baby boy.
In an image that he posted on the photo-sharing platform, the little bundle of joy was seen clucthing Nick's finger with his little hand as he lay down on the hospital bed with a blue blanket surrounding him. In the caption, Nick only revealed the baby's name and birth date. Meanwhile, Keonna has yet to post anything on her own page.
Many of his fellow basketball athletes have sent him congratulatory messages, including Jordan Bell, Kevon Looney and Darius Garland.
Nick announced that he and Keonna were expecting their third child back in March, tweeting, "Num 3 is on the way. I knew being at home this would happen lol." He jokingly added in another tweet, "Dnt say that girls are a too much lol I can't do another lol." Nick and Keonna held a baby shower earlier this month, when he revealed the meaning behind the baby's unique moniker.
Alongside several photos from the baby shower, the Denver Nuggets star wrote, "Bady number 3 hopefully the 16 on 2pac bday I'm naming him Nyce Amaru Young or Nyce Shakur." He was referring to the late Tupac Shakur, whose birthday falls on June 16.
Nick and Keonna, who also have 7-year-old son Nick Young Jr. and 9-month-old daughter Navi Young together, first started dating when they were in high school. He later dated Iggy Azalea in 2013 and they got engaged in June 2015. However, she broke off their engagement a year later after it was revealed that he cheated on her with another woman. Nick and Keonna got back together after that.
