Steve Gleason, wife Michel welcome baby girl
Former Saints player Steve Gleason and his wife Michel welcomed a baby girl Tuesday in New Orleans.
“Steve and Michel Gleason are happy to announce the birth of their second child, a baby girl,” Team Gleason associate executive director Clare Durrett said, according to NOLA.com.
“All are healthy and happy,” Durrett said.
We’re having our daughter today or tomorrow. I’ll be home Saturday with the family. I don’t think I’ve watched Game Day in maybe ten years. The Gleason crew will definitely be tuning in Saturday.

Steve and Michel confirmed publicly in July that they were expecting their second child, a daughter, thanks to a successful in vitro fertilization procedure.
Their first child, a son named Rivers, was born shortly after Gleason learned of his ALS diagnosis in 2011.
