A New Croft is a Document in the Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration DLC Blood Ties. It belongs to the Lord Croft's Journals set and contains the how proud Lara's father about his wife Amelia's pregnancy and the search for a name for the baby.

In a way Dad found the secret of immortality and didn't even realize it. And I'm glad they went with Lara.

I am bursting with pride! Amelia is with child! It is amazing how everything in life can change with such a simple event. Obviously we don't know the gender... but already we've discussed possible names. Perhaps Benjamin, after my grandfather. Or maybe Griffin? He was more infamous a Croft then even me!

No, Amelia wouldn't have it. Besides, she's certain it's a girl. She favors a classic such as Scarlett or Kate, though I#ve made some headway with Lara, a subtle nod to the Sun God Ra, and our days in Egypt where certainly this child was conceived.

I find myself thinking about this new life we've created... of how much she might be like us. For all my research into myths of immortality, I may have ignored the most obvious answer to the questions that plague me. We live on through our progeny... our genes, DNA, experiences... passed through the generations. Perhaps this is the simple truth of eternal life, and I've just been too stubborn to accept it.
