Lenny Dykstra’s son and Tony Soprano’s daughter are having a baby

16 Comments

Two weeks ago Lenny Dykstra’s son, 23-year-old minor leaguer Cutter Dykstra, got engaged to Jamie-Lynn Sigler, the 31-year-old actress who played Meadow on “The Sopranos.”

Now they’re having a baby, according to People magazine.

And because we pay so much attention to the use of unnamed “sources” in the baseball reporting world, I was amused by this:

“She couldn’t be more excited!” a source tells PEOPLE. … There’s no wedding date set yet. But one thing’s for certain: “Jamie can’t wait to be a mom,” the source adds.

Phew. I was worried the source might say something like “oh man, she’s really depressed about this and would rather be a baseball blogger than a mom.”
