Miami Marlins pitcher José Fernández died tragically on Sunday after the boat he was on crashed into a jetty.
Just days before the fatal accident, Fernández had announced to the world on Instagram that he and his girlfriend were expecting their first child. The 24-year-old posted a simple, heartfelt message to the mother of his child, captioning a photo of her baby bump.
I’m so glad you came into my life. I’m ready for where this journey is gonna take us together. #familyfirst
These were the last words, publicly, that Jose said to his girlfriend before the crash took the life of him and two others.
