Houston Astros' third baseman and his wife, Reagan, welcomed a potential future major leaguer - Knox Samuel Bregman.

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes Alex Bregman with a baby carriage.

No, really.

Houston Astros' third baseman and his wife, Reagan, welcomed a potential future major leaguer - Knox Samuel Bregman.

The couple, who tied the knot in December 2020, shared a photo of their newborn son on Instagram Tuesday afternoon.

This comes after Reagan went into labor Monday. Bregman was on the team's lineup for the Astros game against the Boston Red Sox, but was taken out just an hour before the first pitch.

Since sharing the news, they've received an outpouring of support from family, friends, and fans.

"Congrats Brrrrregybomm!!!" Alex's teammate Jose Urquidy commented.

The Astros team and H-E-B, whom employs Alex as a regular pitchman, also offered their congratulations on the post.

Baby and Momma Bregman will have to spend Tuesday evening watching dad on TV. The Astros announced that Alex Bregman was activated from the paternity list a day after Knox Samuel's arrival.

And in some coincidental foreshadowing, manager Dusty Baker slotted him at cleanup in the batting order against the Red Sox. Good luck changing diapers, No. 2.
