Celtics are having a gala time with the happy addition that Derrick White is now the joyful dad of a brand-new boy.

According to Hannah White’s Instagram post, White and Hannah, have become the parents of their first kid, who also happens to be the newest Boston Celtics fan in the world.

Derrick White missed Boston’s 127-102 win against the Miami Heat because he had to return to Massachusetts to be there for his son’s birth, Hendrix James White. White took a flight back to Massachusetts.

Hendrix James White is a great name on many levels since the kid was called after both a famous singer and a standout player for the New England Patriots. Hendrix James White is an outstanding name.

Derrick White Names His Son After The Legendary Musician

Jimi Hendrix, well known for his iconic performances of “Purple Haze” and “All Along the Watchtower,” is the inspiration for the “Hendrix” in James Hendrix’s given name. When White returns to the Celtics lineup, here’s hoping Jimi Hendrix is blasting from the TD Garden PA system.

The “James White” portion of the moniker was included as a tribute to one of the Patriots’ most dependable players over the previous decade. James has shown to be a reliable option on third down, protecting quarterback Tom Brady and maybe wide receiver Mac Jones as well. He made a niche for himself.

Additionally, the name Hendrix was given to the infant boy of Robert Williams III in the month of January.

Congratulations are in order for Derrick White, who should make his return to the Celtics’ starting lineup for the third Game in the East Conf Finals, which will take place on Saturday in Boston.
