Ben Roethlisberger, Tony Romo both become second-time fathers (photo)


In a span of less than 24 hours, two of the most popular quarterbacks in the NFL welcomed a newborn baby into their brood.

On Tuesday, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo and his wife Candice welcomed Rivers Romo into the world. Rivers weighed in at a reported 8 pounds, 12 ounces and joins older brother Hawkins, who is two.

And on early Wednesday morning, Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger’s wife Ashley gave birth to Baylee Marie, the couple’s second child.

Baylee Marie, at 6 pounds, 12 ounces and 19.5 inches, joins big brother Benjamin Jr.. who was born in November 2012.

This has been a banner week for NFL stars and their wives. On Tuesday morning, New York Jets wide receiver Eric Decker and his wife welcomed Vivianne Rose to their family.

Congratulations to all three NFLers and their families.
