Pau Gasol and his wife Cat Gasol on Sunday announced the birth of their first baby, a girl named Elisabet Gianna Gasol.
The couple made the social media announcement, sharing adorable pictures of the now-three family.
Their daughter’s middle name honors Gianna Bryant, who died with Gasol’s friend and former teammate Kobe Bryant in a helicopter crash in January, as well as seven others.
Being a girl dad is something that Kobe has always been very proud of, and Pau referenced that in his post with the hashtag.
“Our little one has finally arrived!! The delivery went really well and we couldn’t be happier!! Elisabet Gianna Gasol 😍, a very meaningful name for our super beautiful daughter!! ❤️👨👩👧 #girldad,” Pau wrote on Instagram.
