Nick Young is ready for a second little one.

When asked by reporters if he was excited to become a dad again at the Kmart Presents The Rise Challenge in Los Angeles on Saturday, the NBA player laughed, “Yeah.”

According to various reports, Young’s ex-girlfriend Keonna Green is currently pregnant with their second child. Young has previously not commented on the rumors.

Green and Young, 31, already share 4-year-old Nick Jr., who may need to toughen up before he becomes an athlete like his dad.

“He’s a little cry baby a little bit,” Young tells PEOPLE. “He’s been around his mom. But I’ll make him a little tougher.”

Young admits that he was like that too as a child.

“I remember I was a cry baby too, but I had a lot of older brothers,” he says. “They used to beat me up a lot.”

The Los Angeles Lakers player says his favorite part of being a father is simply watching his son grow up and enjoying their time together.

“They really look to you to ask you questions and to learn from you and all that,” he says.

The basketball player and singer Iggy Azalea broke up last month.

“I broke up with Nick because I found out he had brought other women into our home while I was away and caught them on the security footage,” she wrote in a tweet.

The split came nearly three months after Young was involved in an alleged cheating scandal. In March, a video surfaced apparently showing Young bragging about cheating on Azalea with other women.
