On Wednesday, the Celtics departed for Orlando and the NBA's "bubble" where if the team makes a deep run in the league's restart they could be until September.

Gordon Hayward's wife Robyn posted a heartfelt message to Instagram as the team was leaving noting how long she and their kids could be away from her husband.

She is due with their fourth child in early September and Hayward has said he will leave the bubble in order to be with her when she goes into labor.

Here's the post.

Lots and lots of tears today. We knew NBA means lots of travel, but not for months at a time. We’re so grateful for the time we’ve had together but in a way that makes it harder especially for the girls. They’ve got to do so many things together throughout this time which has been so neat to watch. They are so in love with their dad he’s the ultimate playmate and tends to break my “rules” haha so he’s obviously the fun parent. He stays with them until they fall asleep at night every night, so lots of changes happening. Next time we see Gordon we’ll have our baby boy! We miss you so much and are almost done crying, but we love you and we’re so excited to watch you play! --
