Tim Duncan announces birth of baby girl, Quill, named after Marvel character

Former Spurs player talks newborn daughter, retirement

SAN ANTONIO – In a podcast Monday, former Spurs player Tim Duncan opened up about his life since retirement, including his new role as father to a newborn.

In the ‘Road Trippin’’ podcast, Duncan spoke with Richard Jefferson, Channing Frye and host Allie Clifton.

A big topic was the birth of his daughter, Quill.

“She is here,” Duncan said, when asked about preparing for his new role. “She was born about a week ago.”

Duncan said his daughter’s name, Quill, was a combination of two things he and his girlfriend appreciate.

He said Quill is a character in "Guardians of the Galaxy" but also Vanessa enjoys writing so the name also harked a quill pen.

The former Spurs player also opened up about life after the NBA. He said he works out in the morning and goes to his car shop in the afternoon. He also said he enjoys stopping by the Spurs' practice facility.
