Reggie Bush and his fiance Lilit Avagyan welcomed their first child, daughter Briseis, on May 6. Yesterday, Father’s Day, Reggie revealed the first photo of the tiny tot.
“Enjoying my first Father’s Day with my family! #blessed,” Reggie wrote on Instagram along with the adorable photo.
“She’s amazing. She’s so beautiful. I love her to death. It’s just been an amazing experience so far so I’m very excited – just being a father,” he recently told Us Weekly of Briseis. “I look at [Briseis] and I can’t believe she’s mine. There’s still that element of I can’t believe this came from me.”
Reggie trains in Detroit where he serves as a running back for the Detroit Lions. While the distance is certainly an issue, Reggie does his best to make it work. “When I’m with her, I want to spend time with her,” he explains, “So I’m doing my best to make sure I’m home as much as possible.”
Prior to the baby’s birth, Reggie spoke on his excitement at becoming a parent. “I’m very excited. Very excited about the baby. It’s our first one and couldn’t have come at a better time,” Reggie wrote in an April blog post on the Detroit Lions’ website. “It couldn’t have come with a better person. Someone I really love and care about. It’s great. It really worked out perfect.”
Reggie and Lilit plan to wed in the summer of 2014.
