Kyrie Irving has stepped into a whole new stage in his life, and that is fatherhood.
Irving announced on Instagram the birth of his baby daughter, Azurie Elizabeth Irving, Tuesday night. Her name was taken from his late mother, Elizabeth.
Azurie Elizabeth Irving 11/23/15 35 hours of labor from her great mother and she came into the world to bring a shine to my world that I never thought was possible. I love you so much, and my heart grew the first time I felt your heart against mine. Mommy, I gave her your name because I know you will bless her and our family the same way you blessed me. I love you.
Irving is still recovering from a knee injury and one can imagine the anxiety that he experiences every game while he watches his teammates fight on the floor. But this important life event absolutely eases that feeling.
They say that becoming a father transforms one person into a more mature individual. So the arrival of Kyrie Irving’s own youngblood only bodes well for him as a person, and hopefully, it also translates onto himself as a leader.
