Bucks fan names baby after Giannis Antetokounmpo

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- There's a new Giannis in Milwaukee, but he's not quite ready to play basketball yet. 

Baby Giannis was born at Ascension St. Joseph and named after the Bucks All-Star. 

Little Giannis has some growing to do. He weighs three pounds, and right now he's in the neonatal intensive care unit. 

A nurse at the hospital wrote a note to Antetokounmpo, saying little Giannis' mom and his two older brothers go to Bucks games and are big fans.

"Man it's crazy," Antetokounmpo said. "People out there naming their kids after me...great compliment. And I hope when the kids grow up they'll like the name."

Giannis Antetokounmpo and his girlfriend are waiting for the birth of their own baby. No word on a due date yet.
