Basketball star Shaquille O'Neal is a dad again after his wife SHAUNIE gave birth to the couple's sixth child yesterday (01MAY06). MEARAH SANAA O'NEAL was born in Florida, California just six minutes after Shaq's former Los Angeles Lakers teammate Kobe Bryant became a second-time father in Orange County, California. Bryant's wife VANESSA gave birth to baby daughter GIANNA MARIA-ONORE at 2am.
