We knew Nick Swisher's offseason would be exciting, but not nearly this wonderful for the slugger and his beautiful wife, JoAnna Garcia.  

The New York Yankees star outfielder is off to entertain life in a new city as he hits free agency, expecting to make quite the pretty penny, too. 

Now comes word that he and Garcia are going to have their first child together. Per US Weekly, the actress took to Twitter to announce the news to the masses.

So happy to finally be able to share our news! @nickswisher & I r expecting our 1st baby in 2013! Feeling so blessed & beyond excited!

The actress who starred in the shows Reba and Better With You took to Swisher's Facebook page to further spread the good news. 

We are so excited to finally be able to share our exciting news with you! We are expecting a little Swisher in the spring of 2013! Words can't describe how blessed we feel to be expanding our family and are anxiously awaiting the arrival of our new addition. Your support and kindness has meant so much to us throughout the years and we wanted to personally share the news with you all.

The couple married in a celebrity-fueled affair in December 2010, counting Reba McEntire, Jamie-Lynn Sigler and Lance Bass among the attendees. 

Garcia may have picked the best time to have their first child as her only role for the moment seems to be several episodes as Dr. Nina Greene on USA's Royal Pains

As for the former Yankees slugger, there is no telling where he will land next. 

Swisher is coming off a year wherein he hit .272 with 24 home runs and drove in 93 runs, and is expected to be one of the hottest hitters on the open market right under the likes of Josh Hamilton. 

He recently denied a Yankees qualifying offer of $13.3 million. He may certainly land back with the Bronx Bombers, but could fit in nicely with a myriad of teams. 

Not that any of that matters for a couple who are glowing at the moment, expecting their first bundle of joy some time next year.
