Brad Penner-US PRESSWIRE
Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger's new baby is due soon, and he won't miss it for anything.
Ben Roethlisberger is becoming a father, and he accidentally let the world know when that will happen on Friday. Big Ben went on the Dan Patrick Show and may have indicated when his child will be born, according to Mark Kaboly of triblive.com:
While Patrick was trying to get out of Roethlisberger what the name of the boy will be, Roethlisberger said "I let you know in like two weeks."
Kaboly also mentioned that Big Ben won't be missing his baby's birth for the sake of a football game. The Steelers play the Browns on Nov. 25, so Pittsburgh may be without Roethlisberger's services when they head to Cleveland. The Browns are just 2-7 so far in 2012.
The quarterback is having one of his best seasons in the NFL and has carried the offense as Pittsburgh's ground game has taken a while to get going. Roethlisberger has completed 67 percent of his passes for 2,203 yards and 16 touchdowns, against just four interceptions. He is one pace to come close to career highs in completion percentage, yards, touchdowns, and passer rating.
