Matt Barnes and Anansa Sims

*Former NBA star Matt Barnes and his girlfriend, Anansa Sims, shared adorable photos online of their newborn baby son, Ashton Joseph Barnes.

Barnes, 38, announced his son’s birth on Instagram Saturday, writing: “Just in time for the Holidays … Ashton Joseph Barnes aka “AJ” 8lbs 13oz 22.5 inches @anansasims #ThreeKings”.

Matt is already father to 10-year-old twin sons, Carter and Isaiah, by reality TV star Gloria Govan. He recently received a reduction in child support after the judge overseeing the custody case between the ex-couple ruled in his favor.

Barnes was paying Govan $20K a month in child support but argued that he couldn’t afford the hefty payments after retiring. The reduced monthly payments follow his legal win of primary custody of the boys.

On Tuesday, Barnes and Sims shared photos online of them bonding “skin-to-skin” with Ashton.

The proud mother captioned the images: “I couldn’t have done it without you my Love .. You talked me through every push… held my hand… and said exactly what I needed to hear to get our little man here .. #foreverlove #blessed”.

As noted by Sandra Rose, Anansa, 39, was criticized by social media users for wasting little time getting pregnant by Barnes after ending her marriage to the father of her 3 children, ages 5-7, in 2017.
