Martin Brodeur Baby

DEVILS FAN OF THE WEEK ~ New Jersey Devils goaltender Martin Brodeur has welcomed his fifth child. Maxime Philippe arrived on November 23, 2009, and weighed in at just over 8 lbs. Maxime is the first child for Marin and his wife Genevieve.

“It went really well,” Brodeur reports. “A big, healthy baby.” Maxime’s name was chosen carefully according to the French-Canadian born Martin, who notes that he’s heard numerous mispronunciations of his own moniker.

“Anything they could say in French and English pretty easy. I figured [Maxime's] pretty easy, and all my other kids are the same way.”

Like his siblings (Anthony, 14, twins William and Jeremy, 13, and Anabelle Antoinette, 7 ~ Martin's children with ex-wife Melanie Dubois), the newest Brodeur addition already has his first initial on dad’s hockey helmet.

Martin and Genevieve were married in 2008.

Maxime ~ Latin. Variation of Maximillian ~ Latin for greatest. Unisex.

Philippe ~ French. Horse lover. Variation of Phillip.
