CHICAGO (WBBM NEWSRADIO) -- "Our journey is just beginning - baby boy, April 2020."

Chicago Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant and his wife Jessica announced Tuesday on Twitter that they are expecting their first child.

The high school sweethearts who married in 2017, made the announcement via a video posted on Jessica’s Twitter, with the caption, "Our journey is just beginning" with a blue heart emoji. The video shows pictures and videos of memories the two have shared throughout the years, including some from their wedding and the Cubs winning the World Series. The video is set to the song "From The Ground Up" by country music duo, Dan + Shay.

The video concludes with video footage of Jessica getting an ultrasound and an image of the baby boy. The closing scene is a picture from the ultrasound with the words, "Our journey is just beginning - baby boy, April 2020."

Kris also posted the video on his Instagram with the caption, "Life is getting interesting, and I couldn’t be happier!”

The arrival of the baby boy in April 2020 will come not long after the Cubs begin their regular season. Chicago's opener is at Milwaukee on March 26.
