New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez, 32, and his wife, Cynthia Rodriguez, 34, are expecting their second child next spring.

Hooray! That will make two more kids than he has World Series rings!

“Cynthia and I are overjoyed to announce this addition to our family,” says the future Hall of Famer, who may have to take out a second mortgage in order to feed the growing brood.

“We realize already what a special gift children are, and feel extremely blessed to welcome our second child next year.”

This is great news for Alex Rodriguez as he prepares to face the Cleveland Indians in the American League Division Series beginning tonight.

But most excited member of the family might be Natasha, 2.

“I feel great!” Cynthia Rodriguez says, adding that they don’t yet know the sex of the baby, but will find out soon. “My daughter wants to know more than we do!”

“We’re just real excited,” added Cynthia Rodriguez, a.k.a. “F-Rod,” who earned some headlines earlier this year by wearing an offensive t-shirt, presumably a response to scandalous allegations against her husband.

“It’s almost more exciting [than the first child] in a way, because you can anticipate what you already know is so amazing. We’re thrilled. We can’t wait.”

Congratulations! If it’s a girl, we expect the couple won’t be naming it Joslyn Noel Morse Rodriguez. Although stranger things have happened.
