Phillies star Bryce Harper and the rest of the MLB's players are in the middle of a standoff with the league office in terms of figuring out how and when the season will play out. Despite that, Harper has found time to keep himself busy when he is not on the diamond.
Harper comically reached out to the Eagles’ Twitter page to let everyone know he would possibly be interested in playing for them if the MLB’s negotiations fell through. Most recently, however, Harper announced with his wife Kayla celebrated Father’s Day by announcing that they are expecting a new addition to the family.
Kayla and Bryce are expecting a daughter in a matter of months to go along with the couple’s first-born son, Krew, back in 2019. With the MLB season being put on hold, Harper has had a few more months to spend time with the ones that matter the most, his family.
Former A’s pitcher Dallas Braden was quick to welcome Harper to being a “girl dad,” a phrase that the late Kobe Bryant made famous with the raising of his four daughters, particularly in relation to his late daughter, Gianna.
Congratulations are in order for the Harper family. With Kayla expected to have the child some time in December, Harper will not have to worry about his MLB season interfering with raising his young daughter. Just like that, two young ones are about to give Bryce a taste of what it means to be a full-time dad.
