Dennis Rodman returned from his second trip to North Korea and promptly revealed the name of dicator and friend Kim Jong Un's baby daughter.

The NBA Hall of Famer told The Guardian (UK) about a "relaxing time by the sea" spent with Kim and his family. And he also let slip the baby's name.

Speculation sprang up last year that Kim might be a dad after a photo showed his wife wearing a long coat that could have been hiding a bump.

North Korean authorities kept quiet about the matter, although Rodman confirmed Kim had a baby girl. Now after his return visit, he's got the name.

The flamboyant Rodman said, "I held their baby Ju Ae and spoke with Ms. Ri as well," referring to his wife and calling Kim Jong Un "a good dad."

Dennis Rodman is back in North Korea. The NBA Hall of Famer is making a second trip to the rogue nation helmed by his "friend for life" Kim Jong Un.

The purpose of The Worm's return is somewhat unclear, but he says he will NOT try to negotiate the release of an American held by Kim's regime since 2012.

"I'm not going to North Korea to discuss freeing Kenneth Bae," Rodman told media in Beijing. "I'm just going there on another basketball diplomacy tour."

"I just want to meet my friend Kim, the marshal, and start a basketball league. I have not been promised anything. I am just going there as a friendly gesture."

"I'm just going over there to have a good time and try to bridge the gap."

NBA Hall of Famer Dennis Rodman is going back to North Korea this summer, in part because President Barack Obama can't do jack about the situation.

At least as far as the eccentric ballplayer's worldview sees it.

Rodman, who famously bonded with "friend for life" Kim Jong-Un earlier this year, says he will do all that he can to free U.S. citizen Kenneth Bae.

Bae was sentenced to 15 years hard labor for allegedly plotting to overthrow the North Korean government, a wrong The Worm hopes he can right.

"I'm gonna try and get the guy out," Rodman lamented. "It's gonna be difficult. We got a black president [who] can't even go talk to [Kim Jong-Un]."

"Obama can't do $h!t, I don't know why he won't go talk to him."

Dennis Rodman is returning to Pyongyang this summer.

At a charity gala at the Fontainebleu Hotel in Miami Beach, he told the Miami Herald of his plans to return to North Korea and see BFF Kim Jong Un again.

"I'm going back August 1," he said. "We have no plans really, as far as what we're going to be doing over there, but we'll just hang and have some fun!"

Dennis Rodman's trip to North Korea this winter introduced us to the phrase "basketball diplomacy," though it didn't win him any fans in the U.S. government.

NBA Hall of Fame member and longtime oddball Dennis Rodman.

North Korean strongman and baby-faced charmer Kim Jong-Un.

The unlikely pair, who hit it off in the DPRK last week, make one hell of a team - in the classic '90s video game NBA Jam, according to this hilarious video.

Look at Kim destroy his evil, capitalistic foes! HE'S ON FIRE!!!

Not surprisingly, the hometown "North Korea All Stars" absolutely annihilate the visiting "Pathetic Americans" ... with Kim doing most of the damage.

Rodman was never a big scorer, after all.

Eccentric NBA legend Dennis Rodman is already planning his next trip to North Korea, according to reports, with his sights set on much more than basketball.

The star wants to broker a peace deal between the United States and the (erroneously named) Democratic People's Republic of Korea. Seriously.

Obama, Rodman, Kim

Rodman's rep says that despite a storied career - Basketball Hall of Fame, five titles, records, awards - a U.S./N.K. peace deal would be his "greatest achievement."

Whoa whoa. Slow down. Guy is the career rebounds per game leader in the NBA since 1973. He once averaged 18 per game in a season! Insane.

Back from a whirlwind trip to North Korea, Dennis Rodman says his "friend for life" Kim Jong Un just wants President Barack Obama to call him.

The former NBA star told ABC's George Stephanopoulos on This Week, "He wants Obama to do one thing: Call him. He said, 'If you can, Dennis.'"

"I don't want [to] do war. I don't want to do war.' He said that to me."

The 51-year-old athlete said the two sides already have common ground, and he offered Kim some advice for potential future talks with Obama.

"[Kim] loves basketball. And I said the same thing, I said, 'Obama loves basketball.' Let's start there," the Basketball Hall of Fame member said.
