While we await changes to the front office and coaching staff, Joel Embiid surprised fans tonight by announcing one major change to the Sixers family:
Arthur Elijah De Paula Embiid— Joel “Troel” Embiid (@JoelEmbiid) September 25, 2020
We are so blessed and fortunate to welcome our little boy in this family. First of 11 or more? Trying to convince her but I’m not winning so far. I’m just trying to build a soccer team but for real I’m so excited for the future #GodIsGreat pic.twitter.com/eZaUnx90oo
Joel announced he and girlfriend Anne De Paula are now the proud parents of baby boy, Arthur Elijah De Paula Embiid. The name Arthur comes in honor of Joel’s brother, who tragically died in 2014 at the age of 13.
I look forward to the day when we spot Joel, Anne, baby Arthur in a stroller, and Klaus Hinkie pulling on his leash during a leisurely walk in the streets of Philadelphia. I can only hope that Andre Drummond, Hassan Whiteside, Myles Turner, and Mo Bamba all know that even if it seems like their father is paying more attention to the new baby, he still cares about them.
If you thought Joel was dominant in the post before, just wait until he gains his dad strength. Congratulations to the happy family!
