Actress Eva Longoria's ex-husband, Tony Parker, is a new dad - the French basketball star's fiancee has given birth to the couple's first child.

Little Josh was born on Wednesday (30Apr14), hours before Parker helped the San Antonio Spurs beat the Dallas Mavericks in the National Basketball Association's 2014 play-offs.

His teammate Tim Duncan says, "He was really excited before the game. Obviously, he was really excited to have his son here and wanted to get this game really badly, not only for his son but for the situation and the timing of it."

Parker announced he was expecting a son with French journalist Axelle Francine in October (13).

He ended his four year marriage to Longoria in 2011.
