Portland Trail Blazers star Damian Lillard announced at the end of August that he and his fiancee are expecting twins. The two parents already have a son together, the adorable Dame Jr., but the twins will mark the arrival of another son and Lillard’s first daughter. Lillard recently told Blazers sideline reporter Brooke Olzendam that he’s “excited” about becoming a “girl dad”:

“I always wanted my son to have a brother, because I know what it means to have a brother ... also knowing that he’s going to have a sister, with how I feel about my sister, I don’t know what that’s going to mean for me, that’s going to break me down. I’m going to be a girl dad! I’m excited.”
