“My biggest #wcw of all time, happy to welcome a new squirrel to the tree, my baby girl lily #proud,” Julian captioned the adorable snap, which shows the athlete sweetly gazing down at baby Lily while she rests in his arms. And you better believe his followers have already gone wild over the adorable Insta pic.
“Omg!!! BIG DADDY E!!! Congrats papa bear!!!” one fan wrote. Another gushed, “OMG EDELMAN IS A POPPA 🙀🙀😍😍😍.” But as sweet as this father/daughter photo is, it isn’t actually the first social media image of Lily. Julian’s ex, Ella Rose, actually posted their daughter’s first pic on Dec. 3, writing, “Welcome to the world my little Lily 💗 Born 11/30/16 at 1:11pm 8lbs 5oz.”
There’s no question Lily is a cutie pie! Julian even made sure to be there for her big arrival as he reportedly flew out to LA in order to make it in time to meet his baby girl. And you better believe the footballer plans on being involved in Lily’s life! In fact, Ella even told friends that she’s “on great terms with the NFL star … and hopes he’s a big part of their daughter’s life,” TMZ reported over the summer. So sweet!
Tell us, HollywoodLifers — isn’t baby Lily super adorable? Do you think Julian will make a great dad?
