Bynum’s second daughter, Aliya Gloria, was born Thursday. She weighed eight pounds and was 21 inches long.
"It was beautiful," said Bynum, 29, who did not accompany the Pistons to Toronto for last Wednesday’s final game before the break. "That was my first time (in the delivery room). My oldest daughter, who is four, I didn’t get a chance to make it because I had the championship game in Israel at the time.
"I was scared at first but it was beautiful. It wasn’t what I expected. It was definitely special. It worked out well (over the break). I got to spend time with them and help my wife (Andrea) out."
Russell, a first-time dad, welcomed son Aiden Jake into the world on Saturday.
"It was a great thing," said Russell, 29. "It was a great experience, a beautiful experience to see the whole process. I’m just ecstatic. I’m just proud. First baby, it was a son, so I’m ecstatic right now."
