The Phillies announced on Monday that the club has preemptively signed the spawn of Bryce Harper to a life-time deal, sources tell The Good Phight.
...Okay, April Fools.
But, do you want to know what’s not a joke? Bryce and Kayla Harper are pregnant, and the baby is due during the regular season!
Kayla announced the news via Twitter this afternoon:
Wrigley’s gonna be pissed... Baby Harper making HIS debut Aug. 2019 pic.twitter.com/Kp2FhmXNsg— Kayla Harper (@kayyharper8) April 1, 2019
Minutes after Kayla’s tweet went live, Bryce took to Instagram himself, and announced the news there, as well:
Phillies twitter was set aflame with congratulations for the couple, and rightfully so. The two have been running rampant of late — and I’m sure sharing this news lifts quite the weight off of their shoulders.
So, what can we expect from the son of Philly’s Favorite? Well, it’s a common trope in Major League Baseball that all new fathers are bestowed with some newfound strength, and, in Bryce’s case, that kind of enhancement could be earth-shattering.
Bryce is really about to have one of those ‘New Father Strength’ moments where he crushes 5 grand slams in one game. https://t.co/hDDWXvWnd5— Alex Carr (@AlexCarrMLB) April 1, 2019
So, consider this one big congratulations from we at The Good Phight to the Harper Clan. May the arrival of this child bring upon an onslaught of cuteness-overload content, including but not limited to:
- Adorable shenanigans with Rhys Hoskins’ golden retriever, Rookie.
- Playdates with Steel McCutchen, as well as the other kids of the team.
- Heart-warming GIFs of our favorite baby cheering on his Dad.
We all thought that Bryce Harper himself would be the poster child of Philadelphia — but something tells me this little nugget is going to be quick to steal the spotlight from his father.
