Big Ben's family just got a bit bigger.

Ben Roethlisberger and his wife, Ashley, had their third child, a boy named Bodie, Thursday night. The birth was announced on

Bodie joins sister Baylee and brother Ben Jr. as members of the Steelers' quarterback's clan.

As the website points out, and the photo proves, the birth came just in time for the Penguins' Game 7 of the Eastern Conference final against the Tampa Bay Lightning. I'm sure he'll be in a football jersey in no time.

No word yet on if Bodie will play QB like big No. 7, but it's worth noting his early stats: 7 pounds, 7 ounces and 21 inches long.
