Phillies outfielder Bryce Harper and his wife Kayla announced Monday that the couple has a second child on the way—this time a daughter.

Kayla wrote on Instagram that the baby girl is expected to be born in December. Her older brother, Krew Aron, will have his first birthday in August.
The Harpers moved from D.C. to Philadelphia in 2019, when Bryce left the Nationals via free agency and signed a 13-year, $330 million contract with the Phillies.
In his first season with his new team, Harper hit .260 with 35 home runs and as career-high 114 RBIs. However, he failed to make the All-Star team for the first time since 2014 and the Phillies struggled in the second half before missing the playoffs with an 81-81 record.
Despite losing Harper, the Nationals made the playoffs as a Wild Card team on their way to winning their first World Series in franchise history and D.C.’s first since 1924.
But even without a playoff run for Harper, this past year has been an exciting one for him and his family. Now that another baby is on the way, that excitement is certain to continue.
