Different quarterbacks handle paternity differently.  Peyton Manning was ultra-secretive about his twin girls.  Eli was the same, to a lesser extent.

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, however, has made it publicly known that his wife is expecting their first child.

Roethlisberger made the declaration on his website.  “It is truly a blessing and we are so excited!” Roethlisberger said, managing to use not one but two of Tim Tebow’s favorite words.

The baby is due to arrive later this year.  Since football season also starts later this year, things could get interesting if his wife goes into labor on the day of a game.
