One of basketball's most popular families just got a little bigger after Ayesha and Stephen Curry announced the birth of their fourth child. The Golden State Warriors point guard announced on his official Instagram page, and in the process also shared his son's unique name.

Ayesha announced her pregnancy in March by showing off her baby bump through her magazine 'Sweet July.'. With Caius' birth, she and Stephen Curry now have four children.

The couple did not announce when their son was due. What Steph is most likely referring to by saying his son made an early arrival is the fact that among all his kids, Caius is the only one who was born in a different month.
