Celtics forward Gordon Hayward and his wife, Robyn, are parents for a fourth time.
Robyn Hayward announced the birth of the couple's first son -- Gordon Theodore Hayward -- on Wednesday, a couple of hours before the Celtics would face the Miami Heat in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference finals.
Hayward had originally planned to leave the bubble for the birth, but he remained with the Celtics. He got some unplanned time off earlier in Boston's postseason run because of a sprained ankle, and spent some of that with his wife and daughters before returning to the NBA campus.

ANALYSIS: Gordon Hayward, who had originally planned to depart for the birth of his first son, will stay in the bubble and suit up for the Celtics in Game 4. After leaving the bubble for his ankle injury, Hayward changed his mind on leaving again for the birth of his fourth child and will play out the remainder of the season in Orlando.
Hayward was a major boost for Boston in their Game 3 win as he was able to log over 30 minutes in his first game back from injury.
