Kyrie Irving welcomes first child with partner Marlene Wilkerson
They announced on "Our Pregnancy Journey," an 11-minute clip with pictures of them throughout the experience.
Brooklyn Nets guard Kyrie Irving celebrates the birth of a son with partner Marlene Wilkerson.
The couple had kept their pregnancy quiet until this week when Wilkerson, the model YouTube star, announced a video on her page The Find Guru, where she regularly posts videos about entrepreneurship and health.

The 11-minute clip is titled "Our Pregnancy Journey," and features images of Wilkerson and Irving throughout the experience and a meditation dedicated to "Black Women, Black Mothers, and Black Families," written by Tiffanny Burns and narrated by Jamarah Amani .
Towards the end you see the couple in a bathtub, then you only hear a baby cry and Irving says, “We have you. I have you, little boy. "
The video does not record when the child was born or reveal their name.
It also includes a “dedication to indigenous women to reclaim their bodies and heal our lineage through sacred natural childbirth. May you find your way to this inner knowing. May we educate, strengthen and support one another on the sacred path of becoming and being a mother. "
The little boy is Irving's second child. He has a daughter, Azurie Elizabeth Irving, who was born in 2015 to former partner Andrea Wilson.
The video, which has been viewed more than 40,000 times, has garnered hundreds of congratulatory comments.
Irving was excluded for Game Five of the Nets' second round series against the Milwaukee Bucks. He suffered a sprain in his right ankle. Both he and his teammate James Harden were out on Tuesday's game, but the team still secured a win.
Game six of the series is Thursday night and it has not been confirmed whether Irving or Harden will be playing.
