Philadelphia Phillies star Cole Hamels and wife Heidi Strobel have learned they are expecting a boy. The former Survivor contestant is 5 1/2 months pregnant and due this fall. “We’re excited,” says Cole, 25. “Hopefully we’ll be headed for the World Series when it happens.”
The couple originally planned to travel to Ethiopia in December to adopt a little girl, a plan which has now been delayed for six to nine months.
“We still plan on adopting,” says the former World Series MVP. “[The pregnancy] is something we were planning on doing anyway. We’re going to adopt a girl, and it will be great for her to grow up with a brother. They’ll be like twins.”
Cole and Heidi have been married since 2006.
