There is a new Roethlisberger in Pittsburgh as of Wednesday night as Ashley Roethlisberger, the wife of Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger gave birth to Benjamin Roethlisberger Jr. Wednesday night.
Roethlisberger posted on the forum of his website that both baby and mother are doing fine and that Benjamin Jr. weighed in at 7 lbs., 1 oz. and is 19 1/2 inches long.
Roethlisberger will miss the Sunday game against the Cleveland Browns due to his dislocated rib and right shoulder injury suffered against the Kansas City Chiefs a few weeks ago.
The Steelers quarterback was spotted not wearing his sling on Wednesday and there is hope that he might be able to return to action for the rematch against the Baltimore Ravens.
