Chicago Cubs star Kris Bryant celebrated his 26th birthday on Thursday, and the third baseman received an awesome cake from his wife, Jessica.
The cake is Game of Thrones-themed in crazy detail, and says “26 is Coming” (as in “Winter is Coming”) and “King Kris.”
(The timing is a bit unfortunate with HBO announcing on Thursday that Game of Thrones won’t return until 2019)
And it’s hard to argue too much with the “King Kris” nickname for Bryant.

In Bryant’s first three seasons, he’s won the NL Rookie of the Year, the NL MVP, and was the best player on the 2016 world champion Cubs (the year he won the NL MVP). His 21.6 fWAR over those three years ranks behind only Mike Trout. Yeah, Trout is the game’s best player without question, but you could make a great argument that Bryant is currently the King of the NL, at least.
But we’ll save that argument for another day and just admire the incredible cake.
