(Yahoo!) - Sure, it was a bummer for the Knicks that they were bested in the playoffs, but it's also freed up Amar'e Stoudemire to spend time with his new son.

The 30-year-old NBA star shared his baby news on Wednesday, tweeting:

And while the pro baller didn't reveal the baby's name, trust that it begins with the letter "A." He and his wife, Alexis, are already parents to daughters Ar'e and Assata, and son Amar'e Jr.

Baby Stat arrived just in time for his parents’ wedding. The longtime couple officially tied the knot in a low-key affair last December (on 12-12-12 to be exact), but they are planning a larger celebration this summer.

Sounds like the family photos on the big day will be even sweeter.
