(AP) PITTSBURGH - The huddle at Ben Roethlisberger’s house is getting bigger.

The Steelers quarterback and wife Ashley are expecting the couple’s second child in early 2014. Roethlisberger released the news on his official website Monday evening.

Roethlisberger and his wife posted: "We are both excited and blessed to announce that we’re expecting baby (hash)2 in the spring!"

The baby will join big brother Ben Jr., born last November.

The Roethlisbergers posted that Ben Jr. is "already preparing to be a protective big brother (but will also keep a close eye on his favorite toys)!"

The Roethlisbergers were married just over two years ago in a small enclave north of Pittsburgh in a quiet ceremony attended by a sizable contingent from the organization.
