After leaving the NBA bubble due to a knee injury, Damian Lillard has some happy news to share with his fans.

On Instagram Monday, the Portland Trail Blazers star, 30, announced that he and fiancée Kay'La Hanson are expecting twins.

"I'm a DADDY DADDY now 😂😂😂... happy for another boy but this girl gone hit different," Lillard shared on Instagram, along with a portrait of him, Hanson and their 2½-year-old son Damian Jr. all holding out two peas in a pod.

The Blazers congratulated their marquee point guard, sharing on social media: "Congratulations to @Dame_Lillard & his fiancée Kay’La, who announced they are having twins!"

Lillard proposed to his longtime girlfriend in February during the NBA All-Star weekend at a private party. The couple has been dating since college at Weber State.

Just days before announcing the pregnancy news, Lillard, who was unanimously voted the Most Valuable Bubble Player, left the NBA campus in Orlando on Wednesday and returned to Portland for further examination of his injured right knee.

Though he is injured, leaving the bubble and going home to his family was a silver lining.

"Dislocated finger... Lateral knee sprain ... but this is good for the soul ... missed my baby boy," the proud dad shared on Instagram, posting a photo of him and his smiling son.

Following Lillard's leave, the Blazers lost to LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers, 1-4, in the first round of the NBA playoffs on Saturday.

The team's season ended with a 131-122 Game 5 loss to the Lakers.
