Baby Baez! Javier, girlfriend are expecting

January 24th, 2018

CHICAGO -- Cubs infielder announced a new addition on Wednesday with the news that he and longtime girlfriend Irmarie Marquez are expecting a baby.
Baez posted a photo of him with Marquez holding a child-sized Baez jersey on Twitter: "Una Bendicion Mas De Dios! Baby Baez is Coming!!! What do you think [it] will be? Boy or Girl? deja tu opinion ..."
The post included some emojis, including happy faces and a baby bottle.

Baez knows all about gender reveals. He took part in one at the Cubs Convention for a Houston family, joining teammates , and in pulling confetti poppers on stage.
It's been a busy offseason for Baez, 25, who spends part of his offseason in Puerto Rico and part of it in Jacksonville, Fla., where he's in the process of purchasing a ranch.
"I'm really excited to have that and have the space," Baez told at the Cubs Convention.
Baez currently owns one horse and hopes to buy more.
"That's where I grew up in Jacksonville," Baez said of the ranch, which includes a home gym setup. "I grew up on that farm, and I told [the owners] I want to [buy it], and they told me when they were ready to move out, they'd let me know."
The Cubs' social media team visited Baez on the ranch in December and posted video of him feeding the chickens and horses.
"I love doing it," Baez said about taking care of the livestock. "It's peaceful."
