Pau Gasol and wife name their newborn after Gianna Bryant


Milwaukee Bucks player and previous Lakers star Pau Gasol reported the sweet news that he’s a dad. The double cross NBA champion and his better half Catherine McDonnell invited their first kid together, a baby girl.

Pau additionally uncovered that his infant girl’s name is an accolade for the late Gianna Bryant, who shockingly died with her dad, Kobe Bryant, and a few others in a helicopter crash in January.

“Our little one has finally arrived!! The delivery went really well and we couldn’t be happier,” Pau shared on instagram on Sunday, Sept. 13, alongside a family photo. “Elisabet Gianna Gasol, a very meaningful name for our super beautiful daughter!!”

Catherine revealed her little one arrived on Sept. 10. “She made a quick and easy entrance on a VERY special day, her great-grandmother Elizabeth’s 100th birthday and her mom and dad’s 2nd engagement anniversary,” the proud mom captioned her post. “We are already so in love with our sweet Ellie!!”

Vanessa Bryant approved of the couple’s special tribute. “Love you 3,” she replied to the NBA star’s post. “Congratulations.”
