The Phillies Zack Wheeler and his wife Dominique have a daughter due in July:

“I am not going to miss the birth of my first child. I don’t care,” Wheeler told NBC10. “I’m going to be there for her and the birth of my child. That’s a fact. I think anybody would do the same thing. Any dad. Whether I have to come back here (Atlanta) and be with her and miss two more weeks because I have to quarantine to play again, so be it.”

“I want to be here with her during that time,” he said. “It’s something special. You’ll never get to experience that again, the birth of your first child. They are saying your significant other would not be allowed to be with you. That makes no sense to me. If we’re gonna be stuck in quarantine, then why can’t they be stuck with us in quarantine?”
