When it comes to Alex Ovechkin, one number has become more important than all the others.

No, not 700. Two.

Ovechkin's wife Nastya announced on Instagram on Monday that the couple is expecting their second child.

Ovechkin's son, Sergei, is set to turn two years old this August.

Nastya posted a picture of the family while showing off her baby bump and posting a caption in Russian loosely translated to say, "Can't wait to meet you."

Ovechkin recently became the eighth player in NHL history to reach 700 goals for his career. He is currently 8th on the career scoring list, just eight goals behind 7th place Mike Gartner.
