Michelle Rodriguez, the fiancee of Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Ryan Shazier, announced some great news this week. The couple, which has been through a lot over the past year after a serious spinal injury in December left Shazier in a wheelchair, revealed that they have been blessed with another miracle as they are now expecting their first child together.
“We are EXTREMELY excited to announce that we have a bundle of joy on the way,” Michelle wrote on Instagram. “With everything that’s happened, we couldn’t more thankful for the continuous blessings we have received.” According to her post on social media, the child is due in January 2019.
Shazier added a comment of his own on Twitter: “The plan god has placed around this family is very bright. So we’re so excited to let everyone know we have a wonderful blessing coming and I can’t wait to welcome another beautiful Shazier.”
Congratulations to the couple on the great news.
Shazier will not be playing in 2018 after being placed on the Reserve/Physically Unable to Perform List in May, but the Steelers converted his salary into a signing bonus and he still has a dream to play football again one day.
