KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Wife of Kansas City Royals infielder Ben Zobrist, Julianna, tweeted on Friday that the couple welcomed a new baby girl to their family.
In the tweet Julianna said, “In true GIRL fashion, allow new baby Zobrist to go ahead and one up everything else that has happened this week!”
Later in the afternoon we learned they named her Blaise Royal Zobrist.
It’s been a busy week for the Zobrist family. First Ben and the Royals won the World Series Sunday, on Friday Julianna released a new single and then the birth of their baby girl.
There had been concern from fans about what would happen if Julianna went into labor during the World Series, but she and Ben assured fans that she would leave and not tell Ben until after he was done playing.
This is the Zobrists’ third child.
