Alex Ovechkin poses with Stanley Cup, wife Nastya shows off baby bump

WASHINGTON — If it was a something of an open secret up until Thursday night, it wasn’t anymore by the time the Caps hoisted the Stanley Cup: Alex and Nastya Ovechkin are expecting their first child.

When prompted during a postgame SportsNet interview, Ovechkin declined to discuss the particulars.

“It’s unbelievable,” he said. “I’m just happy, you know?”

Nastya also posted a photo to Instagram of the couple with the Stanley Cup with the caption “We did it,” in Russian.

The Capitals defeated the Las Vegas Golden Knights 4-3 in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final to win the franchise’s first-ever championship. They are expected back in Washington Friday afternoon, with a parade coming sometime next week.
