Miami Heat star Tyler Herro is getting ready to meet his baby boy!

"I'm feeling great," Herro, 22, told PEOPLE during a visit to NBA 2K's House of Greatness in Las Vegas, as he and longtime girlfriend Katya Elise Henry prepare for their second child.

"Parents of one, soon to be two," he added. He and Henry announced last month that they're expecting another baby, due in January, who will join 9-month-old daughter Zya Elise Herro.

And on Tuesday, the couple revealed on social media that baby #2 will be a boy. "Can't believe there's a boy in here," Henry, 27, wrote in an Instagram story.

The couple began their relationship in 2020 via social media when Herro publicly courted the fitness guru during the NBA's shutdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The couple exchanged brief messages on Twitter before meeting in real life.
