PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Ben Roethlisberger and his wife are expecting and he talked to reporters for the first time about it on Tuesday.

“Obviously, family is very important to me and we’re really excited and we can’t wait for that day to come,” he said.

Over the weekend, Ben posted on his website that he and his wife Ashley are expecting a baby boy later this year.

“I want to be just like my dad,” he said. “I’ve said it many times and he’s my role model. If I could be like him, I’d be really happy, so that’s who I’m modeling my future fatherhood after.”

And he’s looking forward to making memories.

“The ultimate is to try to have your son or daughter or both at a Super Bowl, so that’s going to be my goal now is to get a Super Bowl,” says Ben, “because I don’t think there’s anything better than having your family on the field with you when you’re holding that trophy and the confetti’s falling on you.”

Ben and Ashley have been married for almost a year now. They tied the knot last July.
