Ben Roethlisberger & Wife Expecting First Child

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and wife Ashley are expecting their first child, a son, later this year. The football star announced the news on his official website Saturday.

“Ashley and I are proud to let you all know that we are expecting a baby boy later this year!” Big Ben wrote. “It is truly a blessing and we are so excited!”

The Roethlisbergers were wed in July 2011 in a small enclave north of Pittsburgh in a quiet ceremony.

It’s been a busy offseason for Roethlisberger, who turned 30 in March and graduated from Miami last month with a bachelor’s degree in education. He is planning to join the team for mandatory minicamp next week.

Congratulations to the Roethlisberger family!

    Let’s hope he doesn’t pass on the rapist genes.

      Now, now, people are innocent until proven guilty, aren’t they? This man is innocent! Just like OJ Simpson and Michael Jackson!
