"Ashley and I are proud to let you all know that we are expecting a baby boy later this year!" Mr. Roethlisberger posted on his official website, www.bigben7.com. "It is truly a blessing and we are so excited!"

Roethlisberger and his wife married last year, a year after being accused of rape in a nightclub in Georgia. Roethlisberger's public transformation from accused sexual offender to family man continues here. It's very hard not to view everything he does in terms of his image. That is, it's hard not to feel that the radical changes in his life in the past two years aren't being cynically calculated. Having a kid is serious business, though, so it's probably best to give him of the benefit of the doubt. Anyway, after this post, it's probably none of my business anymore.
