One of the many celebrity couples welcoming babies this spring/summer has just given birth! According to US Weekly, football player Reggie Bush and his fiancee Lilit Avagyan just welcomed a baby girl on Monday, May 6. A rep told the mag:
“Lilit gave birth to a beautiful baby girl. The tot weighed in at 8 pounds, 9 ounces.”
Less than a month ago, Bush, who is now a running back for the Detroit Lions, wrote about his family plans and how the couple will balance new parenthood with his career on the football team’s blog, saying:
My fiance’s name [is] Lilit. She’s Armenian and just got her citizenship, actually. She speaks Russian, Armenian, English, she’s learning Spanish now. She wants to speak Russian/Armenian to the baby first, which I like, because that way she grows up knowing multiple languages.
“The baby will be in LA. Well, she’s going to be in LA because her family lives 15-20 minutes away from us. So she’s going to need that support system while I’m here for a few days out of each week. Then I’ll be home. Depending on which week it is, I’ll be home on a Thursday or a Wednesday and come back here Sunday. I’ll just have to deal with travel. I’m going to rack up a lot of sky miles, I know that.
“I’m very excited. Very excited about the baby. It’s our first one and couldn’t have come at a better time. I don’t know if there’s ever a perfect time to have a baby because you can always find excuses like, ‘Well, I’m still trying to do this.’ I just think, for me, it came at a good time when I needed it to just kind of put in my head my direction in life. It just made it more simple. It couldn’t have come with a better person. Someone I really love and care about. It’s great. It really worked out perfect.
Glad things worked out so well for the couple. Congrats on the new bundle!
