DALLAS -- Dallas Mavericks superstar forward Dirk Nowitzki became a dad for the first time two months ago when his wife, Jessica, gave birth to a daughter name Malaika.
Thus, Nowitzki will be entering his first training camp Tuesday as a father. And he's certainly noticed the change.
"It's definitely different than the life before, but its been a blessing,'' Nowitzki said. "She’s a little over two months now.
"She's growing, she's healthy, so everything is going great. The nights are a little shorter than I
was used to, but it’s going great and I can’t complain.’’
Asked if his daughter, born July 24, is a daddy’s baby, Nowitzki said: “Not really yet. I think that’s going to take some time. I don’t have (breast), so I can’t really help her that much yet, but hopefully in a couple of years.’’
