Our big special boy is going to be a father!

If you’re in need for some good news this afternoon, look no further than Aneta Hertl’s Instagram. While it’s typically a good mood boost in the form of her ever-smiling husband, Tomas, the couple shared an announcement on the platform today: they’re having a baby.

Hertl posted the photo to his own Instagram account, though he didn’t include the second photo in Aneta’s post — an adorable baby outfit, including teeny tiny shoes, which will always make me choke up a little. They’re just so small!

The pair just celebrated their one-year wedding anniversary, tying the knot last summer. Their wedding infamously led to videos of Hertl’s Sharks teammates singing and dancing to “Baby Shark” during the wedding reception.

Their own baby Shark will be here in November 2020. Congratulations to Tomas and Aneta!
