MLB star Max Scherzer’s “traveling circus” is about to get a little “crazier” as he is all set to welcome his fourth child with wife Erica Scherzer.
Erica announced the big news on her social media account with a beautiful family picture. The couple are parents to three children – son Derek and two daughters, Brooke and Kacey.
In the photo, Max and Erica’s daughters are seen holding the announcement balloons while Derek is seen crying and sitting on the grass.
Erica revealed that they will welcome a baby girl next year.
“Our traveling circus is about to get a little crazier! Baby girl Scherzer joins us February 2023.” – Erica Scherzer
Congratulations are in order for Max and Erica, who are going to become parents for the fourth time.
Twitter is overjoyed and has showered beautiful messages for the New York Mets pitcher and his wife. One user tweeted a hilarious comment saying she’s retired and is a Mets fan, so if the couple needs a nanny, they can get in touch.
"Congratulations!!!! This is exciting. As the oldest of 7, having a lot of siblings is the best. If you ever need a nanny, I'm retired and a Mets fan! Wishing you an easy pregnancy and good health for you and your baby." - Game6MetsFan86
Some people can relate to Derek, who’s crying in the picture.
