The 34-year-old NHL star announced on Wednesday that he and his wife, Nastya, had welcomed their second child that day, sharing a photo of the trio in the hospital.

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.

Ovechkin and Nastya revealed they were expecting their second child back in February, with some help from their 21-month-old son Sergei Aleksandrovich.

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.

"We are waiting for you very much," she captioned the post, in Russian, adding hashtags including, "#ovechkinfamily," "#pregnancy" and "#secondbaby."

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.

"My girls arranged me such a beautiful, sincere and funny #babyshower, headed [up] by @varvara_41791 😍," Nastya wrote in the caption of her post, in Russian. "Thank you, dear, for a wonderful [event] and for the fact that the smile just didn't leave me all evening."
