WRIGLEYVILLE — He's crashed engagement photos, bachelor parties and even weddings.

Add a new cameo for Bill Murray: Announcing a pregnancy for fellow Cubs fans.

Robbie Schloss and Kirsten Barrish Schloss announced their pregnancy to their parents in a video starring the actor and devoted Cubs fan.

"Hey, I've got news for you. You're going to be grandparents," Murray says, before pointing to Schloss, who announces, "We're having a baby!"

The joyous announcement was filmed in the stands behind home plate after the Cubs beat The Nationals in Game 3 of the National League Division series last Monday. For that game's seventh inning stretch, Murray sang "Take Me Out to the Ballgame."

"My father-in-law is a longtime Cubs fan, so it was pretty awesome sending this to him," said Robbie Schloss, who shared the video with his parents and in-laws on Monday night, and posted it to Instagram on Saturday after the rest of the couple's family were briefed on the big news.

Schloss, owner of Chill Productions and a co-owner/managing partner at North Avenue Beach's Shore Club, and Kirsten Barrish Schloss, a vice president at Generations Healthcare Network, were sitting next to Murray during the game, Robbie Schloss told DNAinfo.

"We talked casually during the game and he playfully switched glasses with Kirsten for a minute since his shades make the entire stadium turn blue. After the Cubs won, I told Bill I needed him to make our pregnancy announcement. Kirsten struggled with fertility so we had decided not to make it public at first, but this was too fun to pass up," Robbie Schloss said.

Schloss said Murray gladly recorded the message and the trio got a few cheers from the crowd standing around them.

The Schlosses, who will celebrate their third anniversary in December, were married at The Standard Club on December 13, 2014.

Robbie Schloss said their baby will be the first grandchild for his parents and the second for Kirsten's parents.

"#billmurray thank you for making my parents cry! #babybottles coming April 2018," Schloss posted.
