Nick Young becomes father

Iggy Azalea's ex-fiancé Nick Young has become a father.

The 31-year-old professional basketball player welcomed his little girl Navi Young into the world with his ex-girlfriend Keonna Green on Wednesday (26.10.16) and has now given fans a little glimpse of his baby daughter wrapped in her blanket in hospital.

Taking to his Instagram account on Friday (28.10.16), the athlete uploaded a photograph of Navi clutching on to his finger, although he positioned the camera so that her face was hidden.

He accompanied the sweet snap with the hashtag: "#BabyNaviYoung," alongside a praying and a heart emoji.

Keonna reportedly went into labour three days ago while Nick was busy helping his team the LA Lakers beat the Houston Rockets but, according to TMZ, he rushed to the hospital after the game and managed to catch the birth just in time.

Nick and Keonna already have four-year-old son Nick Jr. together but, despite their new arrival, it seems unlikely they'll get back together as the hunk is now dating Paloma Ford.

The couple got together shortly after he split from his fiancée Iggy, whom he was engaged to for a year, when she found out he'd cheated on her while she was away for work with Keonna.

Keonna said recently: "We got caught up in the moment and it just happened. I would be like, 'Nick, you cannot be sloppy. You need to be honest [with Iggy].' He would say, 'I don't want to hear it.' I don't know what was going on in his household, but me and Nick have lots of history. It wasn't a secret on my end. I didn't feel guilty because I was in love with a man, and I'm pretty sure I'm not the only woman."

But Keonna wasn't the only person Nick reportedly slept with while he was dating the 26-year-old rapper as their relationship first crumbled earlier this year when a video surfaced of the sportsman allegedly admitting to having sex with a teenager.

Iggy initially stood by her man but later decided to call it quits because she couldn't get over the infidelity.

She said: "Unfortunately although I love Nick and have tried and tried to rebuild my trust in him -- it's become apparent in the last few weeks I am unable to."
