Ben & Ashley Roethlisberger welcome baby boy

It was an extra special Thanksgiving in the Roethlisberger household. Steelers Ben & his wife Ashley welcomed a son, Benjamin Jr. on Thanksgiving eve at 10:06 p.m. The bouncing baby boy weighed  7 lbs, 1 oz and was 19 inches.

The QB posted the news on his website Thursday and said mommy and baby are doing just fine. Like a proud dad, he also added that he’ll post photos sometime this weekend.

 “We want to thank everyone for their thoughts and prayers, it really means a lot to us. God is so good!”

Sweet! Congrats to the new parents.
