Nick Swisher was not in the lineup last night for his team’s game against the Detroit Tigers, but the first baseman had a solid excuse:

Wife JoAnna Garcia gave birth yesterday to a baby girl!

The actress announced via Twitter in November that she and her baseball playing husband were expecting their first child.

Stormi Webster Speaks!!!

Said an excited Swisher to Yahoo on May 12:

“I’ve been cruising along. I’ve got a beautiful wife, she’s my best friend, I’ve got a great job and a beautiful home, and now it’s time to be a dad… I want [my daughter] to be exactly like my wife.”

AWWW! So sweet!

No word yet on the name or measurements of the child, but she’s clearly entering into a loving family. We wish them the best!
