Alex and Cynthia Rodriguez Welcome Second Child

by at .

New York Yankees star Alex Rodriguez took leave from his fellow Bronx Bombers this week for a very good reason: A-Rod became a dad again.

The 32-year-old Alex and wife Cynthia Rodriguez, 34, welcomed their second daughter, born Monday night in Miami, his team announced.

"We are thrilled with the birth of our second daughter and the blessing of having two beautiful, healthy children in our lives," the happy father said.

Alex Rodriguez, a future Hall of Famer and two-time American League MVP, and his wife of five years already have a daughter, Natasha, 3.

A-Rod has something to smile about despite his team's so-so start.

They revealed this second pregnancy last October, not long after a scandal involving Alex and Joslyn Noel Morse hit celebrity news sites.

"We're thrilled. We can't wait," Cynthia Rodriguez said.

"It's almost more exciting [than the first child] in a way, because you can anticipate what you already know is so amazing."

Alex Rodriguez, who had been undergoing treatment on his strained right quadriceps, is expected to rejoin the Yanks on Thursday.
