Kyrie Irving announces birth of daughter: Azurie Elizabeth Irving

Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving announced on Facebook and Instagram tonight that he is the father of a newborn baby girl named Azurie Elizabeth.

Irving's mother was named Elizabeth. She passed away when Kyrie was just four years old.

Irving was excused from the team prior to last night's game against the Orlando Magic, and it seems like this was probably the reason for that. His post suggests the baby's birthdate was 7/23/15, but I think it is possible that he meant to list it as 11/23/15, which was yesterday.

Irving has not played in a game yet this season, as he is still recovering from a knee injury.

Congratulations to the 23-year-old Irving on this tremendous milestone.

Also, between you and me, 35 hours of labor does not sound fun.
