If there is one thing Chicago Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant loves more than baseball, it's the prospect of fatherhood. Bryant and his wife are expecting their first child, a baby boy, in April. During the Cubs-Padres telecast on Friday night, the 28-year-old slugger shared his excitement for what's to come and he could barely contain his smile.
Chicago will play two Spring Training games in Las Vegas, Bryant's hometown, from March 7-8, and he noted that one of his wife's last doctor's appointments is around the same time. New manager David Ross is even granting the former NL MVP an extra day to spend with his wife before he reports back to the club and gears up for Opening Day.
Until then, Bryant will continue rocking his baby blue glove, which he has donned since arriving at preseason as part of the gender reveal.
This has the makings to be an unforgettable year for Bryant, and it's nothing less than he's deserves considering the relentless trade rumors that surrounded him this offseason.
