Christian singer Julianna Zobrist has shared with CBB that she and her husband, Tampa Bay Rays shortstop Ben Zobrist, are proud parents after welcoming son Zion Benjamin Zobrist at 2:23 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 1st. He weighed in at 8 lbs., 15 oz and was 21 ¾ inches long. The 24-year-old tells that Zion’s “birth was amazing. I was able to deliver him completely naturally and it was by far the most intense and spectacular experience I have ever been able to be a part of.”

The pregnancy was announced in October. Zion is the couple’s first child.

Julianna’s first album, The Tree, was released last December. Ben, 27, began his professional baseball career in 2004 after being drafted by the Houston Astros and was traded to the Rays in 2006.
