NBA basketball player Dennis Schröder has become a father for the third time. Schröder’s wife Ellen gave birth to the child in the USA.

    “We are now five,” wrote the 29-year-old from Braunschweig on Friday evening German time on Instagram and published photos of the offspring.

    The national team captain was given a childbirth leave by the Los Angeles Lakers and will not play in pro league basketball with the Milwaukee Bucks on Friday.

    Schröder was previously the father of a son (Dennis Malick jr.) and a daughter (Imalia Aaliya). Nothing is known about the gender of the third child.
