Ben Roethlisberger expecting son
PITTSBURGH -- Big Ben's going to be a big daddy.
Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and wife, Ashley, are expecting a son later this year. Roethlisberger released the news on his official website Saturday afternoon.
Roethlisberger posted: "It is truly a blessing and we are so excited!"
The Roethlisbergers were married just more than a year ago in a small enclave north of Pittsburgh in a quiet ceremony attended by a sizable contingent from the organization.
It's been a busy offseason for Roethlisberger, who turned 30 in March and graduated from Miami (Ohio) last month with a bachelor's degree in education. He is expected to join the team for mandatory minicamp next week.
