Paul Pierce revealed his reason for missing the Celtics game Monday against the Timberwolves – he was with his wife waiting to welcome their new son, who has a pretty awesome name, Prince Paul Pierce, to the world – which happened Tuesday night.
According to the Boston Globe:
While the Celtics were in Minnesota, Pierce was home in Boston with his wife, who was about to give birth.
And at 8:21 p.m. Tuesday, the couple’s first son, Prince Paul Pierce, entered this world.
“In the next 18 years, world, Celtics fans, look out,” Pierce told WEEI late Wednesday night after the Celtics beat the Detroit Pistons, 98-93, at TD Garden.
