Girlfriend of Oregon tight end Spencer Webb announces pregnancy: 'We created an angel'
Kelly Kay, the girlfriend of Oregon tight end Spencer Webb, announced on Monday she is expecting a baby more than a month after Webb’s passing in a rock sliding accident.
Kay shared a photo of herself holding a sign that reads, “Coming Soon Baby Webb,” with a picture of the baby’s sonogram.
“We created an angel before heaven gained one,” she captioned the post. “All you ever wanted was to be a father…I know you’ll be the best one from up above. Can’t believe I have to do it without you but knowing I’ll have a piece of you keeps me going. I can’t wait to meet the person that’s half you, half me. I love you forever, both of you.”
Kay also shared a text message conversation between her and Webb in which they talked about starting a family together.

On July 13, Webb passed away at just 22 following a rock sliding accident at Triangle Lake, roughly 35 miles from Oregon’s campus.
“Spencer, on your tombstone, there’s a day when you were born, a day when you pass,” head coach Dan Lanning said at Pac-12 Media Day last month. “But what made Spencer special is how he lived that dash in between those two numbers. We want to live and create a dash that’s meaningful.”
