Evan Longoria returned to the Rays after Wednesday’s birth of his daughter, Elle Leona. Elle was supposed to be born on April 2nd, but due to girlfriend Jamie Edmonson’s high blood pressure, Elle was born six weeks early. Elle entered the world at 4.1 pounds and 18 inches. This means that Elle will be at a hospital in Boca Raton for several weeks. Elle is named after Longoria’s mother Mary Ellen, and Leona for Edmondson’s grandmother. Longoria expects to return on Monday against Boston, though Joe Maddon says it will be Tuesday against the Houston Astros.
Evan Longoria and Jaime Edmonson welcome a baby girl in their lives. Though the baby was due April 1st, Edmonson was forced to induce labor six weeks early. Though the reason why is unknown, Longoria has let team members and friends know that both mother and daughter are doing fine.
On December 16, Evan Longoria’s girlfriend Jamie Edmondson announced her pregnancy by posting a picture on her Twitter. Now we all know that Longoria was picturing college tuition when he made the 10 year-100 million dollars deal with the Tampa Bay Rays a few weeks ago. Longoria talked about settling down in the Tampa Bay area, though I doubt anyone thought it would be next year that he would be starting a family. The baby is due in Spring 2013. The pair have been dating for about two years and together they have been very vocal about raising awareness for Pet Pal Animal Shelter, a no-kill, nonprofit shelter in St. Petersburg. Edmondson is a former Miami Dolphins Cheerleader and model, though she knows a few things about sports (always nice seeing a girl that knows a thing about sports). I wish Longoria and Edmondson the best of luck with the new baby! Though will the baby grow up to be a baseball player like daddy or cheerleader like mommy?
