Damian Lillard was great on the court once again as he recorded a game-high 41 points in a key 107-103 win over the Pelicans, but even more wonderful for the 27-year-old, he learned after the game his girlfriend went into labor with what will be their first-born child.
After Lillard helped overcome a 36-point, 14-rebound performance from Anthony Davis and a triple-double from Jrue Holiday, he had to rush back to Portland to be with his family.
“I’m excited,” Lillard told reporters after the game. “Been waiting.”
Congrats to Lillard on the baby, maybe he’ll do the right thing and make his girlfriend his wife. In the meantime, check out some pics of Kayla Hansen below.
