The trade rumors had been difficult for Kris Bryant to deal with this offseason.

However, it has not dampened the excitement that Kris and his wife Jessica are having as they expect their first child, a baby boy, due sometime in April.

Bryant was interviewed during Friday night's game against the Padres about him soon becoming a dad.

"Honestly, I think this is really what I've been put on this Earth to do is be a dad," Bryant said to reporter Taylor McGregor. "Obviously I play baseball pretty good, but I'm just so excited for this new journey with my wife and family, and everybody is so excited. Honestly, I think this is going to be one of the best years of my life."

Priorities in life are so important, and I'm glad to see that KB has his family No. 1.
