Harpers announce birth of son

The Morning Call - - SPORTS - By Matt Breen

Baby Harper has ar­rived. Bryce Harper’s crew ex­panded by one when the Phillies star and his wife, Kayla, an­nounced the birth of their son, Krew Aron.

The Harpers an­nounced the baby’s ar­rival Mon­day in an In­sta­gram post. Harper flew Wed­nes­day night from Bos­ton to Las Ve­gas to be with his wife as she gave birth to the cou­ple’s first child. The baby was born on Thurs­day.

The Phillies placed Harper on the pa­ter­nity list on Fri­day be­fore they dropped two of three in Mi­ami to the last-place Marlins. Harper was to join the Phillies on Mon­day when they opened a three-game se­ries at home against the Pi­rates.

The Harpers are both from Las Ve­gas and Kayla played col­lege soccer at Ohio State and BYU. They were mar­ried in De­cem­ber 2016. They an­nounced in April, shortly af­ter Harper’s first game with the Phillies, that they were ex­pect­ing a baby boy.
