Ahead of her son's birth, Nastya shared one final snapshot of her baby bump in a selfie-style video on her Instagram Story, showing off her belly under a fitted blue dress.
In the photos, the Washington Capitals captain and his wife posed for the camera alongside little Sergei, who was sandwiched between his parents. Nastya placed her hand on her baby bump in both snapshots.

Nastya shared a collection of black-and-white photos from the couple's coed baby shower the following month, which seemed to boast a "Little Gentleman" theme based on the writing on the bow-tie cookies.
Other sweet touches included a multi-tier cake featuring a black-and-gold top hat and gold bow tie and suspender frosted decorations, as well as coordinating cake pops and décor around the space.
Guests all wore bow ties for the occasion — with the exception of the mama-to-be, who opted to show off her baby bump under a red dress.
