It's been a rather quiet Friday in the NBA, as the dust has settled from the draft. At least that was until Kobe Bryant announced major personal news on social media.

The Lakers legend and his wife, Vanessa Bryant, announced in January that they were expecting another daughter on the way. It would mark the fourth child in the family, joining Natalia, Gianna and Bianca.

Well, the day has finally come for Bryant to welcome his newest baby into the world.

The five-time NBA champion announced the news on Instagram, saying "We are beyond excited that our baby girl "Koko" has arrived!"

Her full name is Capri Kobe Bryant, which should probably please many basketball fans.

Via Bryant's Instagram:

This isn't the first time that Bryant's family found themselves in the headlines in recent months.

Gianna Bryant had the basketball world buzzing in May due to her skills on the hardwood. Clearly her father's basketball skills were passed down to her.

We'll see if Bryant and his wife continue their quest to add a baby boy to their beautiful family. Even if they don't, the couple are extremely grateful for being blessed with four daughters.

Congratulations to the Bryant family.
