KSAT Sports Director Greg Simmons has confirmed that San Antonio Spurs star Tony Parker is the proud father of a baby boy named Josh.

The Spurs guard's fiancée, Axelle Francine, a French journalist, gave birth on Wednesday just hours before the Spurs are set to take the court for Game 5 against the Dallas Mavericks.

Parker, who was upgraded to "probable" for Wednesday night's game, is dealing with a mild sprain on his left ankle. The upgrade means that Parker more than likely will play.

Simmons said he spotted Parker at the AT&T Center late Wednesday afternoon still sporting a hospital wristband.
