To my sweet husband, I hope our son inherits your kind heart & genuine soul, because you truly amaze me everyday & I cannot wait to watch you become a father! I wouldn’t want to embark on this new adventure of becoming parents with anyone but YOU! 😘 #18weeks #Aug2020 #babyboy
With his son due in August, the Angels can expect to be without the three-time AL MVP for a stretch of games this season. Manager Joe Maddon at least has plenty of time to prepare.
Mike and Jessica Trout got married in December 2017 after getting engaged in July 2016.
"She's been there before baseball and through the whole journey," Trout said of his wife. "You say we're getting married young—I was with her for 11 years."
