Jimmy Butler missed his Heat debut on Wednesday for “personal reasons.”  We were hearing last night that the reason for his absence was the birth of his child.

The Athletic’s Clevis Murray reported on Thursday, that what we were hearing was correct.  Butler missed his first game with his new team for the birth of his child.

We first broke the news back in August that Butler was expecting a child with Kaitlin Nowak.  Then in September we received a video of Butler and his baby momma making their arrival in Miami.
