Julius Randle is missing the Los Angeles Lakers’ game against the Orlando Magic on Friday night, his second absence in a row after he missed the team’s Thursday contest against the Miami HEAT.
Don’t worry, Randle isn’t hurt, but he does have good reason to take some time off. He and his fiancee Kendra Shaw welcomed their first child on Friday, and the Lakers were kind enough to share a picture of him with us on their Twitter account:

After Kobe Bryant showed us the first photos of his own child on Wednesday, we’re beginning to get Laker baby cuteness overload.
