Tony Parker's going to be a daddy!

On Thursday, Oct. 31, the San Antonio Spurs point guard tweeted that his journalist fiancée Axelle Francine was pregnant, writing, "Hey just wanted to say that I'm very happy today... me and my future Wife going to have a Baby Boy!!!!"

Aww, already a proud papa! This will be the first child for the French couple. Parker nonchalantly announced their engagement this past June during a twitter chat, saying his favorite thing was to do was to "Spend time with my fiance." Parker, 31, and Francine, also 31, have been together since 2011.

The dad-to-be was previously married to Eva Longoria. The pair said "I do" in July 2007, but in November 2010, Longoria filed for divorce amid rampant rumors that Parker had exchanged hundreds of text messages with another woman.

"Eva wants everyone to know, she's devastated by the rumors of Tony's infidelity. She loved her husband and is heartbroken about their split," her friend, Mario Lopez, said on Extra at the time. "But she's strong."

Yes, she is, and Longoria and Parker's divorce was finalized in January 2011. Fortunately, both seem to have moved on in a positive way!
