MIAMI -- Reggie Bush is going to become a first-time father.

Bush, the Miami Dolphins' running back, said he and his girlfriend, Lilit Avagyan, are excited about the news.

"We can't wait," he said Tuesday during a weekly radio appearance in South Florida. "It's an opportunity to bring in a new life and raise a child. I think that's the most special gift to a man and a woman. I look forward to it and to building a family."

They don't know yet whether the baby is a boy or girl.
