Boston Celtics’ Kevin Garnett and wife Brandi Padilla-Garnett are brand new parents.  The 31-year-old had missed two of the team’s practices before returning on Saturday, April 19th.  It is being reported that during that time span, Kevin and Brandi welcomed their first child; the Boston Herald reports that it was a girl, born Friday, April 18th.

When asked about his time away, the always private Kevin replied,

Family issues are never public, so I ask [the media] to respect that.
