The upcoming baby already has an Instagram account, featuring four photos, including a "Baby East" napkin pic and a sweet shot of the dad-to-be cradling his wife’s stomach.

As previously reported, the couple revealed in October 2017 that they had suffered a miscarriage.

In a Youtube video, they wrote at the time,

The past 48 hours have been some of the happiest, scariest, and saddest times of my life. My husband Andrew and I found out that we were unexpectedly pregnant, only to find out hours later some tragic news. I have been crying more than I ever have, but am still optimistic for what is next.

The couple became married in April 2016, nine months after getting engaged. The linebacker had popped the question at Wrigley Field in Chicago.
