Bryce Harper, wife expecting baby, former Nationals star announces on Instagram

Bryce Harper, the former Washington Nationals star who signed with the Philadelphia Phillies during the off-season, announced on Instagram Monday that he and his wife are expecting their first child.

Harper posted a picture of him and his wife with the caption, "Philly raised little man will be! #BabyHarper." The star included the "100" symbol and the "baby" emoji.

Harper was the No. 1 pick by the Nationals in the 2010 draft and played with them through the 2018 season. He signed a 13-year, $330-million contract with the Phillies in February.

He will visit Nationals Park for the first time in a Phillies uniform when the two teams meet during a two-game series on Tuesday and Wednesday.
