D-Rose now stands for “Daddy” Rose.

Derrick Rose tweeted photos of his newly born baby on Tuesday with the message: “My lil man PJ.”

During promotional interviews for his shoe, the Bulls guard has alluded to becoming a father a few times but has kept the details private. Mieka Reese, Rose’s longtime girlfriend, is the mother.

Rose has been rehabbing a knee injury from last season and is not expected to return until February.

The Bulls confirmed that the boy was born about two weeks ago but had no other information.
