Atlanta Braves' Freddie Freeman, wife announce baby's gender with home run

KISSIMMEE, FL (WTVM) - There are few things more special than announcing to your friends and family that you're expecting a child.

The moment was not lost for Atlanta Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman and his wife, Chelsea, who announced on Twitter on March 4 that the couple is having a child.

The couple's announcement took to Freddie's profession to announce the baby's gender while his team, the Braves, are at spring training in Kissimmee, FL.

In a video posted to her Twitter on March 8, Chelsea tosses a baseball to her husband - who of course hits it right down the middle - to reveal a puff of blue smoke. With home plate surrounded by their families, it was a special moment for the all-star and his wife.

"It's a.....!!!! (We have no idea until that ball exploded!!)," Chelsea Freeman tweeted.

Baby boy Freeman will be born in September.

Congrats to the happy couple!
