UPDATE: It's a boy and his name is Max!

Dirk Nowitzki and his wife Jessica Olsson are expecting a second child later this year, according to German newspaper Bild. CONGRATS, DIRK!

The couple married in 2012 and had a daughter, Malaika, in 2013. They haven't revealed whether it's a boy or a girl but the child is expected in late March. That's good, because we definitely don't need to add any drama to the playoffs this year.

It's impossible to explain exactly what Dirk has meant to this franchise and city, so we're just so happy to see him living a happy life off the court, too. He absolutely deserves every bit of it.

Of course, you know what this means: with Dirk struggling a bit as of late, it's only a matter of time until the baby theories surface! I'm kidding -- hopefully.

But hey, the words of Google translate on that German article put it best: "Our basketball giant will again Papa."
