Help with determining coat type of new puppy - long haired?

Hello German Shepherd experts, I was wondering if you all can help me out. I am close to purchasing a German shepherd puppy, but I need to know if the puppy will be long haired. The mother is a black and red long haired German Shepherd while the father has short, black and tan coat. Your help will be much appreciated!

Here are some pictures:

So adorable! And I would say probably long-haired. Or at least plush coat. He looks at least as fuzzy as my plush coat was at that age, if not more so.
