Patti Scialfa, Springsteen’s wife and bandmate, showed off Lily Harper Springsteen, the daughter of their youngest son, Sam, on Instagram Friday.
“Walking the baby_ Lily Harper Springsteen,” Scialfa wrote with a flower emoji under a black-and-white picture of the new parents pushing a baby carriage. Scialfa also shared a picture of the newborn wearing pink hospital mitts.
“That is some big time good news Grandma,” commented Amy Aiello Lofgren, wife of E Street Band guitarist Nils Lofren.
“Congratulations!!! She is beautiful!!” wrote Jill Vedder, wife of Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder. “Love the name .. we are quite fond of the “Harper” part since we have a Harper too,” referencing the couple’s teenage daughter.
