Sporting forward Johnny Russell welcomes newborn son Julius

The Sporting Kansas City family has a new, adorable addition.

Enter young Julius, the newborn son of Sporting forward Johnny Russell and his wife Nadine.

Julius may be in full acclimation mode at the moment, but he won't have to wait long to join his big sister Blake in watching Papa Johnny take the field for Sporting Kansas City.

With a healthy son and daughter under his guidance, Russell will now begin his preseason preparations with the club in Arizona. After spending most of the next month in the desert, he'll rejoin his family in Kansas City for the launch of the 2020 MLS season.
