Football is only his career but Reggie Bush’s next most important job will be daddy.
The Miami Dolphins star confirmed Tuesday on Florida’s Paul and Young Ron Morning Show that he and girlfriend Lilit Avagyan are expecting their first child together.
Bush, who dated Kim Kardashian off and on from 2007 to 2010, is extremely happy by the news.
“I have a little one on the way…” he told the Paul and Young Ron Morning Show. “We’re pretty excited. We haven’t found out if it’s a boy or girl yet.”
Bush also seems to be anxiously anticipating his new role as family man. “We can’t wait. It’s the opportunity to bring in a new life and raise a child. I think that’s the most special gift to a man and to a woman,” says Bush. “So I look forward to it and to building a family.”
But like most men who’ve dated actively in a lifetime, he’s looking forward to having a mini version of himself when the baby arrives. “I’m hoping for a boy,” says Bush. “Because if it’s a girl, I’m going straight to the gun shop to buy some guns.”
Congrats to the expectant couple!
