From a financial standpoint, at least. First there was Lebron:
James became a father for the second time early Thursday when his girlfriend, Savannah Brinson, gave birth to the couple's second son, Bryce Maximus James.
"You put everything in perspective," he said. "This is definitely special for me, being a part of the NBA and being a part of the NBA finals. It's great. Win, lose or draw, this is special for my family, especially to have another James. It doesn't get any better than this."
Then there was Tiger:
Tiger Woods failed to deliver a championship Sunday in the U.S. Open, but his wife, Elin, delivered a special prize Monday morning that he said last week was far more important than any golf title.
Woods announced on his Web site that he and Elin became the proud parents of a daughter, Sam Alexis Woods.
"Both Elin and Sam are doing well and resting peacefully," Woods wrote after becoming a father, one day after Father's Day.
Then there was the Rainbow Warrior:
NEW YORK, N.Y. -- Jeff Gordon won't have to miss a race for the birth of his daughter.
NASCAR's four-time champion became a father Wednesday when his wife, model Ingrid Vandebosch, gave birth to a girl. Gordon announced on his Web site that Ella Sofia Gordon was born Wednesday morning.
"It's been an absolutely incredible experience," Gordon said. "Ingrid came through amazingly and we're both really happy and overjoyed. We can't wait to get home and start our lives together as a family."
Congratulations, everyone. Now, be the daddy.
