The Los Angeles Angels star was placed on paternity leave on Thursday, July 30. On Saturday, Mike and Jessica posted a photo of their son, Beckham Aaron Trout, who was born on July 30 at 5:10 pm.
Our greatest gift from above • we are so in love!

The newborn's name may not ring any bells to the casual fan, but it does have special meaning to Mike and Jessica.
Beckham shares the name Aaron with Jessica’s late younger brother, who was also Mike’s best friend. Aaron Cox was drafted by the Angels in 2015 and committed suicide in 2018 at the age of 24.
In his first game after Aaron’s death in 2018, Trout wore Aaron’s name on the back of his jersey.

When Mike and Jessica announced in March that she was pregnant, she noted that her due date was right before her brother’s birthday, and that they were having a boy.
From my due date being 2 days before my brother’s birthday, to finding out we’re having a boy — God truly works in mysterious ways! We sure miss you Aaron Joseph, I can already feel you smiling down on this sweet little boy & we can’t wait to tell him all about his Uncle Aaron!
— Jessica Tara Trout (@JessTara) March 3, 2020
Aaron Cox remains a big part of their lives, and it’s no coincidence that their son’s middle name is the same as his first.

Full screen 1/21 SLIDES © Jake Roth-USA TODAY SportsAdam Glanzman/Getty Images Historical comparisons for MLB's young stars Major League Baseball looks a lot different today than it did a few generations ago. Power hitting is much more in demand. Stolen bases have steadily decreased because analytics indicate they aren't worth the risk. Strikeout pitchers are the rage. With that in mind, lets look at 20 current young stars and their historical comparisons. 2/21 SLIDES © Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports | MLB Photos via Getty Images Juan Soto | Ken Griffey Jr. Believe it or not, the Nationals' 21-year-old outfielder could be on his way to a Griffey-like career. In his first full big- league season
in 2019, Soto slashed .282/.401/.548 with 34 homers
and 110 RBI. Griffey Jr. hit 630 bombs in the majors and made 13 All-Star teams, but when he was Soto's age, his .300/.366/.481 slash line and power numbers (22 homers, 80 RBI) paled in comparison. 3/21 SLIDES © Jonathan Dyer-USA TODAY Sports | Brian Bahr /Allsport Austin Meadows | Larry Walker Meadows was the No. 9 overall pick of the Pirates in the 2013 amateur draft, and the outfielder instantly became one of the premier offensive prospects in the sport. In his first full season in the majors a year ago, the sweet-swinging lefty hit .291 and drove in 89 runs for the Rays. He also crushed 33 homers and added 36 other extra-base hits. Walker, who played 17 seasons in the big leagues, will be inducted into the Hall of Fame this summer. His ability to consistently hit for a high average and with power were his trademarks. 4/21 SLIDES © Dustin Bradford/Icon Sportswire | Kevin Reece/Icon Sportswire Pete Alonso | Mark McGwire It's almost eerie how similar these big, right-handed hitting first basemen began their big-league careers. As a rookie in Oakland in 1987, McGwire hit 49 homers and drove in 118 runs. He batted .289, added 28 doubles, reached base at a .370 clip, and was the clear AL Rookie of the Year. Debuting last year, Alonso played in all but one of the Mets' games and slashed .260/.358/.583. He set a rookie record with 53 homers, and his 120 RBI were four short of New York's franchise record. He also easily claimed Rookie of the Year honors, and if he can deliver a career to McGwire's -- minus the steroids -- he'll someday find himself in Cooperstown. Slideshow continues on the next slide 5/21 SLIDES © Cliff Welch/Icon Sportswire | Mark LoMoglio/Icon Sportswire Bo Bichette | Derek Jeter Comparing any young shortstop to the Yankees' former captain is difficult, but the Blue Jays' Bichette certainly has the potential to make a similar impact in the division Jeter called home for 20 years. In just 46 games following his July promotion last summer, the second-generation big leaguer hit .311 with 11 homers and 18 doubles. In the minor leagues, Bichette hit .362 over a full season, and the next year he swiped 32 bases. Toronto hopes he can wreck havoc atop their line-up for years. 6/21 SLIDES © Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports | Gregory J. Fisher-USA TODAY Sports Vladimir Guerrero Jr. | Adrian Beltre Guerrero Jr. was the talk of spring training last March, and while the Jays left him in AAA until late April, that was only done for service time considerations. In the majors, Guerrero Jr. hit .272 with 15 homers and 69 RBI, and while he experienced some growing pains, most scouts agree he'll be a star. If he'd like to follow in the footsteps of someone at the hot corner, he could do a lot worse than Beltre. In 21 big-league seasons, the right-handed slugger hit .286 with 477 homers. Texas retired his number last year. 7/21 SLIDES © Butch Dill-USA TODAY Sports | Brad Rempel-USA TODAY Sports Adley Rutschman | Joe Mauer Rutschman has never played in a big league game, but he's been the top catching prospect in the sport since the second Baltimore took him No.1 overall last June. In 644 at-bats at Oregon State, the switch-hitter hit .352 with 28 homers and 174 RBI. His ceiling is through the roof, and he has the potential to be even better than Mauer -- the last catcher to go No.1 overall. Mauer played 15 seasons in the big leagues for the Twins. 8/21 SLIDES © Jonathan Dyer-USA TODAY Sports | Greg M. Cooper-USA TODAY Sports Ronald Acuna Jr. | Mike Trout Acuna Jr. is well on his way to becoming the Trout of the National League. (Trout's still playing of course, but he's the best comp for Acuna.) In his first full big-league season in '19, the Braves' star outfielder slashed .280/..365/.518 with 41 homers and 101 RBI. He added 22 doubles, two triples and 37 stolen bases. Trout, meanwhile, captured his third AL MVP award in 2019. The veteran hit .291 with 45 bombs and 104 RBI for the Angels last season. 9/21 SLIDES © Rick Scuteri-USA TODAY Sports | Photo by Brad Mangin/MLB Photos via Getty Images) Luis Robert | Andruw Jones If Robert is able to reach the ceiling scouts project for him, the outfielder will ultimately be a vastly better player than Jones, who played 17 big-league seasons. Jones hit 434 home runs, made five All-Star teams and won 10 Gold Gloves.The White Sox' rookie plays with similar swagger. In only 122 minor league games in '19, he hit .328 with 32 homers, 92 RBI, 31 doubles, 11 triples and 36 stolen bases. Slideshow continues on the next slide 10/21 SLIDES © Leslie Plaza Johnson/Icon Sportswire | Steven King/Icon Sportswire Yordan Alvarez | Jim Thome Thome spent the early portion of his career at first base, but he ultimately became one of the most dangerous designated hitters in the American League. The big left-handed slugger is one of only nine players to hit more than 600 home runs in the big leagues, and he was enshrined in Cooperstown in 2018. Alvarez showed significant potential for Houston a year ago. In roughly half a season as the Astros' DH, he slashed .313/.412/.655 with 27 bombs and 78 RBI. 11/21 SLIDES © John Cordes/Icon Sportswire | Jeff Zelevansky/Icon Sportswire Jesus Luzardo | Mark Mulder The Oakland Athletics will be thrilled if this comparison holds true. The 22-year-old Luzardo has been one of the top pitching prospects in the game for some time, and 2020 is going to be his big shot. In 43 minor league starts, he posted a 2.53 ERA with a strong 1.02 WHIP. The A's believe he can become their long-term ace. Mulder turned in three dominant seasons from 2001-03 for the A's before tapering off and moving to the National League. 12/21 SLIDES © John Adams/Icon Sportswire | Tommy LaPorte/Icon Sportswire Mike Soroka | Tim Hudson Tim Hudson was arguably the most consistent pitcher of his generation. In 17 big-league seasons, he had a 3.49 ERA in 3,126 1/3 innings. The righty won 222 games and served as the staff leader in Oakland and Atlanta.The Braves' new ace would love to follow in his footsteps. In 29 outings as a rookie a year ago, Soroka went 13-4 with a 2.68 ERA. Like Hudson, he's not really a strikeout pitcher, but he could be next in a long line of fantastic Atlanta hurlers. 13/21 SLIDES © Nick Wosika/Icon Sportswire | Chris Williams/Icon Sportswire Keston Hiura | Jeff Kent Kent is one of the best offensive second baseman of all time; the Brewers would be thrilled if Hiura's career mirrors the 17-year veteran's. He opened eyes as a rookie last summer, hitting .303 with 19 homers and 49 RBI in roughly half a season. Before the 2020 season was suspended, Milwaukee was planning to hit him in the clean-up spot. 14/21 SLIDES © Brian Rothmuller/Icon Sportswire | David Berding/Icon Sportswire Fernando Tatis Jr. | Alex Rodriguez This is one hell of a comparison, huh? Few humans are capable of becoming the type of player A-Rod was, but Tatis Jr. may have a shot. The 21-year-old Padres shortstop can hit for average and power, steal bases, play stellar defense, and has world-class arm strength. He was one of the best prospects in baseball entering last season. In 84 games for San Diego, he hit .317 with 22 homers. Slideshow continues on the next slide 15/21 SLIDES © Rich von Biberstein/Icon Sportswire | John Cordes/Icon Sportswire Jack Flaherty | Kevin Brown The Redbirds took Flaherty in the first round six years ago, and last season he truly became the ace they always believed he could be. In 33 starts, the righty had a 2.75 ERA with an 0.97 WHIP and struck out 231 in 196.1 innings. Brown was a first-round pick as well -- 28 years earlier -- and for nearly 20 years, he was an upper-tier starter.. 16/21 SLIDES © Brian Rothmuller/Icon Sportswire | Adam Bow/Icon Sportswire Gavin Lux | Chase Utley Lux has as much offensive upside as any young player in the game. In 458 minor league at-bats a season ago, the 22-year-old hit .347 with 26 homers and 76 RBI. He added 33 extra-base hits. The Dodgers' youngster probably will be competing with Hiura for the starting second base spot on the NL All-Star team for years to come. Utley was no stranger to being in that position, as he participated in six All-Star games. 17/21 SLIDES © Bob Kupbens/Icon Sportswire | Jeanine Leech/Icon Sportswire Chris Paddack | Josh Beckett This is a fun comparison. The 24-year-old Paddack burst onto the scene as a rookie a year ago. In 26 starts for the Padres, he went 9-7 with a 3.33 ERA on a team that finished well under .500. He drew attention league wide for his fierce competitiveness. Beckett played 14 seasons in the big leagues, finishing his career in 2014 with a 138-106 record. 18/21 SLIDES © Orlando Ramirez-USA TODAY Sports | Stan Szeto-USA TODAY Sports Joey Bart | Buster Posey Posey is one of the more accomplished catchers in baseball history. In 11 seasons with the Giants, he has won three World Series championships, a Rookie of the Year, an MVP, a Gold Glove, made six All-Star teams and taken home four Silver Sluggers. Injuries have taken their toll on the Florida State product, but lucky for San Fran, it has his replacement waiting in the wings. The Giants selected Bart No. 2 overall two years ago, and after dominating in the minors, he should soon be a regular for the Giants. 19/21 SLIDES © Brad Penner-USA TODAY | Ron Vesely/MLB Photos via Getty Images Gleyber Torres | Cal Ripken Jr. In two MLB seasons, the Yankees' Torres has become one of the best players in the sport. In '19, he slashed .278/.337/.535, drove in 90 and crushed 38 homers. The Ripken comparison is particularly pertinent for the young shortstop, considering 13 of his long balls came against the Hall of Famer's Orioles. Ripken is the gold standard for young shortstops. 20/21 SLIDES © Cody Glenn/Icon Sportswire | Rich von Biberstein/Icon Sportswir Sean Murphy | Yadier Molina Scouts unanimously agree Murphy will be a Gold Glover behind the plate. Offensively, he won't become Mike Piazza, but he should be able to consistently hit .250-.260 with 15-20 homers. What does that combination give you over the long haul? A catcher who looks a lot like Molina, the Cardinals' longtime standout. He has never hit more than 22 home runs in a season. Molina has won nine Gold Gloves and made nine All-Star teams. 21/21 SLIDES © Kyle Ross/Icon Sportswire | John Cordes/Icon Sportswire Ozzie Albies | Roberto Alomar Alomar, a Hall of Famer, is one of the best second basemen of all time, and comparing anyone to him isn't something that's done lightly. In 17 big-league seasons, the Puerto Rico native hit .300 with 210 homers, 504 doubles and 474 steals. He made 12 All-Star teams and won two World Series titles. Albies, also a switch-hitter, has quickly emerged as an upper-echelon second baseman for the Braves. He hit .295 with 24 homers, 43 doubles and eight triples last season. 21/21 SLIDES

The special is due to arrive on the streaming site this fall.
“Everything’s Fine” will feature “vignettes dealing with issues of politics, race, gender, class, and other light subjects,” Netflix said, with guest performers taking part in short interviews, sketches, and “more shenanigans.”
In April 2020, Cooper went viral with her brilliant satirical lip-sync impressions of our current president. Her How to Medical video released on Twitter has been viewed more than 20 million times. In the video, she lip-syncs to Trump talking about the idea of using sunlight and disinfectant to cure coronavirus.

Cooper told The Daily Beast that she got into TikTok after being introduced to the short video sharing site by her nephew.
She also said that making the videos is cathartic for her during the coronavirus pandemic. Her sister is a nurse and her mother has asthma and lives in Florida.
She said that she started doing her Trump impressions after watching his daily virus briefings and said she noticed “that he has no idea what he’s talking about, and he can talk for so long about anything.” She said that she enjoys speaking truth to power by making people laugh.
