reggie bush and fiancee*Congratulations to Reggie Bush who just became a father.

The 28-year-old NFL star had his first child with fiancée Lilit Avagyan on Monday, May 6.

The little girl weighed 8 pounds, 9 ounces.

The couple has been dating for more than a year and first announced their pregnancy in October 2012 on Florida’s “Paul and Young Ron Morning Show.”

It looks like he totally beat his ex-girlfriend Kim Kardashian to the punch and was able to grab the spotlight for a little while.

Kim, who is preggers with her first child with Kanye West, is due in July.

Back to Reggie, he posted on the Detroit Lions’ website his thoughts about becoming a father for the first time.

“I’m very excited. Very excited about the baby. It’s our first one and couldn’t have come at a better time,” he shared. “It couldn’t have come with a better person. Someone I really love and care about. It’s great. It really worked out perfect.”

He also mentioned that he’s got plans to travel back and forth to Los Angeles so his new family will be familiar with his relatives.

“The baby will be in L.A. Well, [Avagyan] is going to be in L.A. because her family lives 15-20 minutes away from us,” he explained. “So she’s going to need that support system while I’m here for a few days out of each week. Then I’ll be home . . . I’m going to rack up a lot of sky miles, I know that.”
