Capitals' forward Lars Eller departed the NHL bubble on Wednesday to be with his wife, Julie, for the birth of his second child. A few days later, the couple welcomed their first son into the family.
Eller shared a photo on Instagram on Saturday of himself holding his son, Alexander, and it's quite adorable.
The couple already has one child together already, a daughter named Sophia.
The forward wasn't the only D.C. athlete to share exciting baby news on Saturday, as Washington Nationals shortstop Trea Turner announced that he and his wife are expecting their first child together in February.
Eller has stated he plans to return to the Capitals following the birth of his son, but it's unclear when he will return. Once he does return to Toronto, however, he must undergo a specific NHL-mandated quarantine before he's cleared to play again.
