Shortly following the Washington Capitals’ historic Stanley Cup win, captain Alex Ovechkin announced that he, and his wife Nastya, were expecting their first child.
On Saturday morning, a source told RMNB that the couple’s son, Sergei Aleksandrovich Ovechkin, was born at 9:34 AM, weighing 9 lbs, 6 oz. He is named for Ovechkin’s late brother.

Friend of the family, Vitaliy Fridzon, also posted his congratulations to the couple on Instagram.
Sergei was born in a hospital near Miami, making him an American citizen.
The Ovechkins had been staying in Florida to both vacation and fulfill partnership opportunities with Fanatics, one of Alex’s sponsors.
“Since my husband will be working in America at the very time when I’ll be due, he will have to be here,” Nastya said in an Instagram Q/A in late July. “For me the most important is to have him nearby on that day, so for that reason alone we decided to have our baby in America.”
“Regardless our child will be Russian,” she added.
All of us here at Russian Machine extend our congratulations to the Ovechkins on Sergei’s birth.
