Who are Ben Roethlisberger's kids?
Ben Roethlisberger has three children with his wife, Ashley Harlan. The couple welcomed their first child, Benjamin Todd in 2012, just a year after the two were married. Daughter Baylee was born in 2014, followed by another son, Bodie, in 2016.
Benjamin Todd Roethlisberger
Benjamin Todd Jr. was born on November 21, 2012. Being Big Ben’s first child, Ben Jr. shares not only his father’s name but also his football skills, as he once completed a pass to rival wide receiver Antonio Brown's son during a 2018 training session. Although Ben was only 6 at the time, he is a talented athlete now at 9 years of age. He practices soccer with his dad, who describes him as “competitive”.
Baylee Marie Roethlisberger
Roethlisberger’s only daughter, Baylee Marie was born on March 19, 2014 and is 8 years old. She is not as athletic as her older brother, and is often seen cheering on for her quarterback dad and wishing him luck before and in between games.
The youngest of the three, Bodie was born on May 26, 2016. He is soon to be 6 years old and is a bundle of joy for the family.
Being a loving and protective father, Big Ben does not want his children to play contact football, as he said in an interview with Pittsburgh Post Gazette in 2018.
