Lillard’s first child, a son named Damian Jr., was born early Thursday morning — and Adidas Basketball made sure Dame Jr. will be dressed in style. Lillard — who is sponsored by Adidas and has his own signature shoe with the brand — shared an Instagram shot of colorful, pint-sized footwear created by the brand.
In addition to shoes, Dame Jr. also has an assortment of T-shirts, diapers and baby bottles representing his father’s brand.
Lillard took to social media to post an image of his son at the hospital, sharing a picture of Dame Jr. at the hospital.
After heading to the hospital to witness the birth of his son, Lillard returned to the Portland Trailblazers Friday night, speaking with reporters about the whirlwind experience.
“I don’t think there’s really any way to describe it. It’s a different level, different type, of excitement. It was my son looking in my eyes. It was different. I’ve never felt anything like that,” Lillard told Oregon Live.
The Trailblazers also congratulated Lillard on his baby’s birth, tweeting pictures of the baby’s shoe collection in the locker room. While most of the styles shown were baby booties, Dame Jr. has his own pair of Lillard’s signature shoe waiting for him when he gets a little bigger.
