Late baseball star Jose Fernandez was apparently expecting a child at the time of his death.
The 24-year-old Miami Marlins pitcher took to Instagram earlier in the week to announce that his girlfriend is pregnant. There are reports that Jose‘s girlfriend is named Carla Mendoza, though this has not been verified. There have also been reports that Jose had been dating a woman named Maria. She is in our thoughts during this difficult time.
“I’m so glad you came into my life. I’m ready for where this journey is gonna take us together. #familyfirst,” Jose captioned a photo of Carla‘s baby bump on display at the beach, which you can see below.
Jose tragically died in a boating accident on Sunday (September 25) near Miami Beach, Fla.
