Reggie Bush, Lilit Avagyan Welcome Baby Daughter: REPORTS

Reggie Bush and his fiancee, Lilit Avagyan, welcomed a baby daughter into their family earlier this week, according to US Weekly.

"Lilit gave birth to a beautiful baby girl," a rep for Avagyan told Us Weekly.

After signing with the Detroit Lions as a free agent in March, the 28-year-old running back spoke with the team's official website about becoming a father.

“I’m very excited. Very excited about the baby. It’s our first one and couldn’t have come at a better time. I don’t know if there’s ever a perfect time to have a baby because you can always find excuses like, ‘Well, I’m still trying to do this.’ I just think, for me, it came at a good time when I needed it to just kind of put in my head my direction in life. It just made it more simple. It couldn’t have come with a better person. Someone I really love and care about. It’s great. It really worked out perfect."

Bush confirmed that Lilit was pregnant in October 2012 during a interview on the "Paul and Young Ron Show." During that interview, Bush joked that he was hoping for a boy because he would feel overly protective of a daughter.

"I'm hoping for a boy, because if it's a girl I'm going straight to the gun shop to buy some guns," Bush said during the radio appearance.

Avagyan, a dancer, has been dubbed a "Kim Kardashian Look-Alike" by In Touch. Bush famously dated Kardashian earlier in his NFL career. They split in March 2010.
