Jose and Nina Altuve welcomed their first child, Melanie Andrea, 10 years after their marriage, in 2016.
“Now when I’m on the field I just think about playing baseball, but then when I go home I just think about her and talking to her and what I can do to help her—just everything about her. Baseball is the thing I do, and she’s what I’m doing after that. So, she fits perfectly into my life," said Jose of his daughter.
