UPDATE: Nick and JoAnna's rep told People they welcomed their daughter on May 21 in Cleveland, Ohio, and named her Emerson Jay Swisher. “We are overjoyed, blessed and so full of love that our daughter Emme has finally arrived,” they told People. “She is healthy, beautiful and vibrant. It’s the best feeling in the world.” Yay!
Baby Swisher is here!
And how's this for a birth announcement: Over on ESPN's website, Cleveland Indians first baseman Nick Swisher is listed on the “paternity list” as of May 21. "Swisher was not in the lineup Tuesday due to the birth of his child."
Translation: Nick, 32, and former Reba, Better With You and Animal Practice actress JoAnna Garcia Swisher, 33, welcomed their baby girl! The couple tied the knot in December 2010 and JoAnna tweeted her pregnancy news on November 12. In January, they revealed they were expecting a girl.
Earlier this month, Nick talked to Yahoo! (via Us Weekly) about his soon-to-be-born daughter. "I am so excited," he said. "I never in a million years thought I'd have a little girl, but over the last six months, the pink and purple dresses that I've bought, I'm telling you. . . My wife, Jo, she says, 'You're going to spoil that little girl so much.' I can't wait, man. I talk to her every night. Jo and I, we're so excited to meet her and to bring her in the world and give her a whole lot of love."
Aww! This little lady is their first child, and we'll have to wait for more details about her — including her name. In the meantime, congrats to the new parents!
