SAN ANTONIO – Two well-known San Antonio figures made baby announcements on Tuesday.  

Spurs point guard Tony Parker announced on Twitter he and his wife, Axelle Francine, are expecting their second child.

The couple’s first son, Josh, was born on April 30, 2014. Parker and Axelle were married a few months later. 

The news means Parker could miss this summer’s Olympic games in Rio de Janeiro  

Parker told French radio station RMC that his wife is due at the end of July, shortly after France's Olympic qualifying tournament from July 4-10.    

Parker said he has yet to decide whether his wife's pregnancy will force him to cancel his commitments with the national team.

Parker has played in several competitions for his home country and was named MVP of the EuroBasket Tournament in 2013.

Another popular San Antonio figure also shared some good baby news on Tuesday.    

U.S. Rep. Joaquin Castro and his wife, Anna, announced the birth of their second child. 

Castro tweeted out “Anna and I are thrilled to announce the birth of our son, Roman Victor Castro.”  

The Castros also have a daughter named Andrea Elena.
