Mookie Betts may just be having the best couple of weeks of his life. 

The MLB star led the Boston Red Sox to a World Series title over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Oct. 28, followed by a duck-boat parade through the streets of Beantown on Halloween day. 

And he welcomed his first child to the world on Nov. 6.

Betts, 26, and longtime girlfriend Brianna Hammonds shared the adorable pics of their 6-pound, 4-ounce little girl on Instagram. 

“Never knew what unconditional love meant or how it felt until I met this little princess,” Betts wrote. “A day I’ll never forget.”

When Betts announced the pregnancy on social media in August, he wrote, "This year continues to be good to me!!! Can’t wait to meet you baby Betts ... more life, more blessings!!!”

And the happy milestones may continue for Betts. He is the favorite to be named the American League Most Valuable Player next week, after a season in which he hit .346 with 32 home runs and 30 stolen bases.
