SAN ANTONIO, Texas — San Antonio Spurs guard Manu Ginobili has become a father, announcing with a message on the internet social website Twitter that his wife Many has given birth to twin sons.
Dante and Nicola Ginobili were born on Sunday, the Argentine star said, adding that mother and sons are all doing well and also noting, "I just changed my first diaper."
Ginobili and his Spurs teammates were knocked out by Phoenix in the second round of the NBA playoffs.
Last month, Ginobili said he would not play for Argentina in the World Championships in August and September at Turkey, citing fatherhood and a desire to avoid injuries.
He spent the past two summers, including the 2008 Beijing Olympics, fighting ankle injuries.
