Cruz celebrates birth of first baby

Not long after Jay-Z and Beyonce celebrated the arrival of baby Blue Ivy Carter over the weekend, Victor Cruz and his girlfriend, Elaina, celebrated the birth of their child, Kennedy, on Monday.

She was born at 7 pounds, 2 ounces. Cruz's unforgettable season continues to get better as he announced the birth on FOX's Good Day NY on Tuesday. He joked that he did his salsa dance not long after Kennedy was born.

Cruz said he has hit teammate Hakeem Nicks up for knowledge on being a father to a baby girl.

"I will text him and ask him about something because he has a little girl himself and I just had one recently, so I ask him for advice all the time and just how he handles certain things," Cruz said.

Nicks told Cruz that "fatherly manhood kicks in."

"I told him congratulations, to cherish the moment, it’s a great feeling," Nicks said.

Nicks is not worried about Cruz not getting much sleep this week.

"Just know it’ll pass," Nicks said. "It’s definitely a great opportunity that we have as a team right now, but I think his mind is in the right spot, you know he came to work with a positive head today and I think he is ready to do what he has to do."

Congratulations to Victor and Elaina.
