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.
Funny dad Adam Sandler had a couple of special visitors on the Los Angeles, California set of his new film Grown Ups 2 today: His daughters Sadie, 6, and Sunny, 3 (June 8)!
The Happy Gilmore star seemed in good spirits, waving to fans as he ushered along his adorable girls. It looks like big sister Sadie was feeling a bit shy, though – at one point she tried to hide inside her dad’s T-shirt!
Adam is the latest celebrity to fall victim to a Twitter hoax; rumors that he was killed in a snowboarding accident during a family vacation in Switzerland circulated online yesterday.
Thankfully, as you can see, the doting daddy is in fact alive and well.
It looks like congrats are in order for Master Chef host Graham Elliot and his wife Allie.
The excited couple are expecting a little boy to join their household in September.
“Having kids makes you realize that all the things you used to stress out over really don’t matter at all,” the 35-year-old owner of G.E.B restaurant tells PEOPLE.
It looks like the couple have settled on a name chock full of family history for their soon-to-be son: Jedediah Pope.
“Her dad’s name is Jed, and the name Pope was the middle name of everyone on my dad’s side,” he explains. “The names Jed and Pope don’t get used often, and they’re part of our family history, so why not embrace that?”
Although the theme is still unknown, Little Jed – who will join the couple’s son Conrad, nearly 2, and Mylo, 5, Graham’s son from a previous marriage – will surely have an awesome nursery, just like his big brothers.
“Mylo had a cowboy theme and with Conrad it was giraffes,” Graham says. “I don’t know what we’re going to do with baby number three!”
