Thunder Star Shai Gilgeous-Alexander Welcomes Baby Boy Ares

Oklahoma City Thunder star Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is celebrating the arrival of his new son, Ares Alexander, born on April 25, 2024. SGA and his girlfriend, Hailey Summer, shared the news on Instagram, just in time for the middle of the Thunder’s playoff series against the New Orleans Pelicans.

Gilgeous-Alexander had the day off when Ares was born, following the Thunder’s Game 2 win. Fans believe this new chapter in SGA’s life could give him an extra edge in the playoffs, with some even referring to a “fatherhood attribute boost” for the Canadian baller.

SGA had an impressive season, averaging 30.1 points and 6.2 assists per game, and Thunder fans are eager to see how the new dad’s performance will impact the team. OKC recently celebrated their first playoff series win since 2015-16 and is now waiting to face the winner of the Clippers and Mavericks series in the conference semifinals.

Congratulations to Shai and Hailey on their new addition!
