Reggie Bush has other things on his mind besides touchdowns and getting to the Super Bowl. Stuff like diapers, pacifiers and financing a college education, perhaps? In Touch is reporting that Kim Kardashian’s ex is about to become a father.
The mag says the mother to be is the Miami Dolphins running back’s girlfriend, Lilit Avagyan. Who? According to the bio on her manager’s Grinya Talent Agency website, Avagyan is a 24-year-old ballet-trained dancer who was raised in Armenia.
Bush, 27, confirmed the news himself Tuesday morning on the Paul and Young Ron Morning show.
“Yes, I have a little one on the way,” Bush said, adding that he was “pretty excited.”
“We can’t wait. It’s an opportunity to bring in new life and raise a child. That’s the most special gift to a man and a woman.”
Looks like Bush is setting down stakes with Avagyan, who looks a lot like a certain Kardashian sister who is coincidentally in town filming Kourtney & Kim Take Miami. Bush’s previous galpal — model Melissa Molinaro — was also a dead ringer for the brunette reality star, who split with Bush in 2010 after three years. The rumored reason: too bright a spotlight for him.
The football star seems in a good place now. He told the radio personalities that he just bought two puppies and “is packing the house already.”
As for the sex of the child, they don’t know, but Bush is going to be the overprotective type so is hoping for a boy.
“If it’s a girl I’m going straight to the gun shop to buy some guns.”
As for Kim, we didn’t hear if she sent her ex congratulations. She is too busy with her present boyfriend, Kanye West, who joined his sweetie in Miami on Monday after spending quality time in Paris for Fashion Week. Word is they were mansion shopping. Nice way to spend the day.
