This news flew under the radar. According to TMZ Los Angeles Clippers superstar Blake Griffin welcomed his first child, Ford Wilson Cameron-Griffin, to the world this summer.
Here’s what Griffin said on the good news to the Los Angeles Times:
“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,”

Unfortunately with such great news comes a little bit of drama. The baby mother of the said child, Brynn Cameron, former athlete at the University of Southern California, has made her rounds with athletes. TMZ reports that Cameron also has a child with Matt Leinart. Yes, the Matt Leinart that won a Heisman Trophy at USC and was drafted tenth overall in the 2006 NFL Draft by the Arizona Cardinals (He was last seen as a member of the Buffalo Bills, but was released before the season started).
Here’s a bit of what TMZ had to say on the situation:
You may recall she had a baby with NFL QB Matt Leinart. Well guess whose baby she just had … that would be Clippers superstar BlakeGriffin!
TMZ has learned … Brynn and Blake are now the proud parents of Ford Wilson Cameron-Griffin, who was born August 1st. The birth certificate lists Brynn as the mother and Blake Austin Griffin as the daddy.
As for the child she had with her baby daddy Matt, 6-year-old Cole lives primarily with her and we’re told she’s getting a boatload of child support — we know she was getting $15k a month.
Small world eh?
Congrats to Blake Griffin on the child though. It’s always good news when someone welcomes a child into the world.
