Oklahoma City Thunder superstar point guard Russell Westbrook made it official this afternoon on social media: He's now a father.

His wife Nina gave birth to a baby boy; Noah Russell Westbrook. It becomes the latest in what may be the most eventful year of Russell Westbrook's adult life.

His superstar teammate Kevin Durant parted ways last summer to join the Golden State Warriors. Westbrook followed up by signing a max deal to stay in Oklahoma City. Russ then went out and completed the first "triple-double" season average in over 50 years.

Westbrook is considered the favorite to be named the NBA's "Most Valuable Player" for the 2016-17 regular season.
