Daddy Truth

cow.jpg A hearty congratulations are in order for Paul Pierce.  He's going to be a daddy!  Via the Herald:

It was Big Baby and Big Daddy yesterday at a Mattapan elementary school where Boston Celtics captain Paul Pierce finally divulged Boston’s Worst Kept Secret - he’s going to be a father!

Pierce, his teammates Glen "Big Baby" Davis and James Posey, were in the midst of a "Read to Achieve" event at the Charles H. Taylor Elementary School when Paul spilled The Truth - that his fiancee, Julie Landrum, is having his baby.

Pierce told the kiddies that he Read(s) to Achieve info about parenting and newborns. Can’t you just see No. 34 devouring "What To Expect When You’re Expecting????"

Anyway, Julie and Paul have been veddy hush-hush about the pregnancy until yesterday. But friends guess that the baby is due in April or early May because Landrum was visibly pregnant at Pierce’s annual New Year’s Eve bash at the Foundation Lounge.

There’s no wedding date - that we know of. Pierce did refer to Landrum as his "fiancee" in a recent issue of ESPN: The Magazine, but he didn’t discuss the nups. (It’s probably safe to assume the wedding will be post-baby and after the NBA Finals. We fans gotta have a dream . . .)

Baby news aside, we must note that at the reading event, Paul, Big Baby and Posey performed scenes from the children’s book, "Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type" by Doreen Conn - in costume! Paul was a cow, Big Baby was a duck and Posey was a chicken. And that’s the Truth. 

In other baby news, Leon Powe's baby was born today.
