Sum of 2 Negative Binomial Random Variables - What is the Distribution?

If you sum 2 negative binomial random variables, do you still have a negative binomial or is it something new?

Thank you!

    still negative binomial

    only thing that changes is NB(r, p) becomes NB(r1 + r2 , p)

    Hope that helps!
