Hello and happy Saturday.
I hope you had a wonderful Friday, but I’m willing to bet you did not have as nice of a Friday as San Francisco Giants pitcher Kevin Gausman and his wife Taylor, as they welcomed their second daughter into the world: Sutton Claire.
Kevin and Taylor Gausman and their oldest daughter, Sadie, welcomed Sutton Claire today; she arrived at 6 lbs, 5 oz. Congrats to the Gausmans!— Susan Slusser (@susanslusser) August 6, 2021
Now that’s just lovely. Congratulations to the Gausman family. What a year for them!
