It's not exactly The Brady Bunch, but the story of Brynn Cameron, who has children by both Matt Leinart and now the Clippers' star forward Blake Griffin, is something straight out of a sitcom. 

Perhaps they could start their own live version of Pro-Stars

The Los Angeles Times' Broderick Turner reports Griffin and Cameron welcomed a baby boy, Ford Wilson Cameron-Griffin, into the world on Monday. 

We might have to wait until the team's media day next Monday for more information. Until then, Turner was able to get this statement from the proud father asking for privacy.

"We are very happy to have a healthy baby, but respectfully request to keep our personal affairs private and let us focus on parenting our son."

If Cameron's name sounds familiar, it may be because she is a former USC basketball player who played for the Trojans from 2004 to 2008, hitting 131 career three-pointers (good for third all-time at USC). 

Of course, that might not be the first thing that comes to mind when you hear about the former athlete. She also shares a son with NFL free-agent quarterback Matt Leinart—who last played for the Buffalo Bills before he was cut after just one preseason game earlier this year.

Back in 2009, the New York Times' Billy Witz profiled Cameron, her relationship with Leinart and their son Cole they now share.

Per the report, Cameron and Leinart met when the basketball player was a freshman, breaking the ice over a chance discussion on the jersey number they shared. 

One thing led to another and the two enjoyed a romantic relationship, one that ended when Leinart was a senior—shortly after she learned she would be having the star quarterback's child. 

Thankfully, she states the two have learned to be amicable for their son, but the fame and media intrigue took some getting used to. 

I was already devastated that I was pregnant. Then being pregnant and having it so public, emotionally, I can’t deal with this. There were times when I would break down — why is this so public, why do people care? After a while, you learn to not listen, to not care.

We certainly hope she still has thick skin when it comes to public attention, because having Griffin's son is bound to draw coverage. 

As of this writing, the likes of the Washington Post, Fox Sports, TMZ and many others had reported on the birth. 

While Griffin is silent on the subject, we are left to offer the only thing that really matters. Here is to congratulating the couple on their new bundle of joy. May life be one big slam dunk for the kid.
