Mike Trout, whose wife plans to have his first child this summer, Los Angeles Angels was added to the list of parental leave on Thursday.
Jessica’s trout wife was originally scheduled to release sometime in August. The limit for being on the list of parental leave is three days. Trout and Jessica have already chosen a name, but wanted to keep it a secret until birth.
The three-time MVP initially hesitated to play in the midst of a pandemic this season, worrying mostly about coronavirus infection and passing it on to his wife, a scenario that would at least force them both to quarantine and prevent them from seeing their newborn. But Trout’s concern seemed to subside somewhat after baseball resumed in early July.
“I just can̵7;t wait to meet him,” Trout said the day before the opening of the Angels season on July 24, marking the start of his ninth full season in the major leagues. “We’re excited. Jessica was really strong and brave. I don’t know how women do it.”
