braden-holtby

On Wednesday night, Braden Holtby‘s father Greg announced awesome news on Twitter: Braden and his wife Brandi welcomed their second child into the world, a girl named Belle Scarlett Holtby. The B names continue!

We don’t have any first looks at Belle, nor any terrible artist’s renditions of what she might look like. Just hearty congratulations for the family and the promise that there will be more photos and GIFs like this in the future.

    Makes me feel like im really slow at life…. He’s only one day older than me, and already has 2 kids!!!

  • Sarah

    Beauty and the Holtbeast! Hooraaay! Congratulations Braden and Brandy from your oddball fans. :D

    It’s not a race, he’s just more attractive than we are :D

    I actually believe Holtby is a separate race. Like High Elf or Eladrin.

    Wait, what are we talking about?

    Congratulations to the Holtby and Bodnar families!

  • Anthony Elworthy/scrubversive

    Siring progeny in a timely manner, Peter… Get with the program! We’ve got to stop you from reflexively thinking about high elves when you should be thinking about women in high heels!

  • Sarah

    Compromise is key, Anthony. He can think about women who think about high elves, no?

  • Sarah

    Lol, I bet she’ll have him wrapped around her finger like that!

  • Owen Johnson

    He’s a year younger than me…

  • Golly Girl

    Love that the baby beast’s middle name is Scarlett. Obviously he intends to rock the red for a long time!

  • Anthony Elworthy/scrubversive

    Touche. That logic has worked for me in the past…

  • Sarah

    Interesting hypothesis. Makes me wonder if any Ducks have named their daughters Olivia.

    Well, there you go. And I’ll criticize your choice the day I stop ogling NHL players.

  • Holtby Fan (Katie)

    Congrats to the Holtby family. I’m sure Belle Scarlett is beautiful. I hope they all enjoy and cherish this time. Babies grow up too fast.

  • DashingDave314

    Hopefully Braden passes on his #flow on to this daughter! Also, willing to bet Braden will have longer hair than his daughter!

    quick

    get something pregnant

  • JenniferH

    Aww, congratulations. :) I knew she was due any time. So the first thing that popped into my head was Gone With the Wind (Big fan here) and then — yup! — continuation of the “B’s.” Braden, Brandi, Benjamin and now Belle.

  • JenniferH

    I didn’t even think of that, I went straight for Gone With the Wind, but I like your way of thinking.

  • Sarah

    Your kitty is adorable, though.

  • JenniferH

    I will never not love this picture.

    Ever.

  • Owen Johnson

    To beat him, I’d have to go back in time and do the Nasty in the Pasty.

  • Owen Johnson

    Thanks!

  • THEOLDROT

    Congratulations, Dad! Keep her away from Olie the Goalie.

  • Hyusis

    I was just watching a bit of hockey and thinking how “heart” is a fine quality in a player when everything is on the line. Then I thought, “Sure would’ve been sweet to see Perreault center that 3rd line this year.”

  • Hyusis

    Oh, and congrats Holtby.

  • Owen Johnson
  • Dark Stranger

    Well, Pat, so that makes you exactly 4 years younger than Ovi! Great birthday to have if you’re a Caps fan. Meanwhile, Dustin Tokarski, the guy who replaced injured Carey Price in the playoffs was born the same day as Holtby — in the same province.

  • JenniferH

    I will never not miss Matty P. in a Caps jersey.

    Ever.

  • Pat Magee

    Yep!! It was so awesome when i found out Ovi and i have the same birthday!! It’s like I was destined to be a fan lol
