September 8th Update: In a gender reveal announcement on Instagram, T.J. and Lauren revealed they are expecting a baby boy! The family gathered with all their closest friends and family at MedStar Capitals Iceplex to reveal the sex of the baby. T.J. hit a puck that exploded into blue powder while Lauren shot blue confetti into the air at the same time. 

See their pictures from their announcement below!

 

 

August 27: In the next year, a family of six will soon become a family of seven!

The Oshies announced last montth that they will be welcoming baby #3 in March 2020 to add to their two daughters and two dogs. Talk about a full house!

"Lauren, the girls and I couldn't be happier and more excited about the new addition to the family. We have so much to be thankful for and this is another gift in our lives," said T.J.

The Caps forward and his wife Lauren's two daughters, Leni and Lyla, are shown in their pregnancy announcement on Instagram jumping on a bed with a little flag that says "big sisters!". 

As for how the girls reacted?

"Lyla and Leni screamed when they heard the news. We told them seconds after we found out and immediately started saying what gender they wanted the baby to be," T.J. said. "They change their minds on a daily basis between a baby sister and baby brother."

If the new addition is anything like it's big sisters, we can expect some more entertaining content on Lauren's Instagram eventually. 

"We plan on doing a gender reveal in the coming weeks with friends and family. It will probably be similar to all the gender reveals you see on social media but those still seem like the most fun ways to find out. Above all I hope baby and mama are healthy and I await the day we get to hold our little Osh Babe," he said. 

We look forward to seeing what gender reveal idea the couple come up with! Congratulations to the Oshies.
