A sign of superstardom? Babies get named after you. That's now happening with Giannis Antetokounmpo.

Keely Sims and her family are big Bucks fans. So when she delivered her baby at Froedtert Hospital last month, she decided "Giannis" was the perfect name.

We got to meet the newest Giannis in town, whose pure cuteness is proving that two Giannis’ in Milwaukee is better than one.

At just seven weeks old, Giannis Adam Sims already has more Bucks gear than most adults.

And maybe some qualities really are inherent in a name - for example, baby Giannis is unbothered by distractions (he stayed asleep for whole interview), and loves to mean mug and flex.

“That’s one of his favorite faces actually,” his mom Keely said. “He hardly ever smiles. He's always mean-mugging!”

Keely says baby Giannis is also wide awake and alert during every Bucks playoff game.
