Cody Bellinger, the center fielder and first baseman for the Chicago Cubs, has been placed on the paternity list following the birth of his second child, a baby girl. The 27-year-old was hitting .300 with five home runs and playing exceptional defense during his first month with the Cubs. The paternity list allows players to miss one to three games for the birth of a child. This policy was put in place to support players who want to be present for the birth of their children. The MLB recognizes the importance of family and has made it possible for players to take time off from the game to be with their loved ones during this important moment.
Bellinger finalized a $17.5 million, one-year contract with the team in December 2022, after previously playing for the Los Angeles Dodgers. While Bellinger’s performance on the field is undoubtedly impressive, his personal life has been a topic of interest for many fans, particularly his relationship with Chase Carter, who is a well-known model.
Know About Cody And Chase’s Relationship
Cody and Chase have been dating since 2020 and seem thrilled about the newest addition to their family. The couple celebrated their second anniversary in July 2022 with an Instagram post, featuring a photo of them with their daughter Caiden, captioned “2 years and many many more.” The couple welcomed their first child, daughter Caiden, in November 2022, and announced their second child’s arrival in October 2022.
Meet Cody Bellinger’s Girlfriend, Chase Carter
Chase Carter is a well-known model who has worked with big brands like Polo Ralph Lauren and Maybelline. She was scouted at an airport in Sydney, Australia when she was just 13 years old and has modeled for numerous brands since then, including Philipp Plein and Galore. In 2018, Carter’s biggest achievement was her editorial in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition. She also appeared on the cover of Maxim magazine in 2018.
Aside from her modeling career, Carter is quite the athlete in her own right. She previously played for the Bahamas National Football Team and takes part in marathons. She told Page Six back in 2018 that she enjoys watching sports while working out, saying, “I usually pick my long runs when sports are on the TV, so I’ll watch a football game, a baseball game, or a basketball game while I’m running, and I find that very motivating because sometimes I like to run without music.”
The Couple’s Public Appearances
After the couple’s first public appearance, they were seen spending more time together and openly expressing their affection for each other through social media posts. Carter frequently posted photos of her and Caiden supporting Bellinger on Instagram, along with the occasional travel photos and modeling shots. The lovebirds celebrated their second anniversary in July 2022, posing for a photo with Caiden on the field at Dodger Stadium.
Bellinger and Carter are a hot couple, with Bellinger making nearly $40 million on the field during his career and Carter being featured in several magazines, most notably the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue and Maxim.
