Wentz and Madison married in July 2018 in Philadelphia, five months after he proposed shortly following his Super Bowl win with the Eagles.

The couple announced their baby on the way on Thanksgiving 2019, sharing multiple family photos of the then-parents-to-be and their dog Henley.

“So much to be thankful for, but this might take the cake! 🙌🏻 What a blessing this child already is and will continue to be to my wife and I,” Wentz wrote on Instagram and Twitter, in part.

Madison and her husband announced the sex of the baby on the way in December, with Wentz sharing a video of the reveal that saw him and a group of men shooting footballs his wife threw into the air. On the second try, the ball exploded into a cloud of pink.

“Gender Reveal: Wentz Family Style 😎,” the athlete captioned his post. “Beyond blessed with this little one on the way! 🙌🏻 Can’t wait to meet you this spring!”

On March 7, Wentz shared a snapshot of himself and Madison (with the latter cradling her baby bump) and wrote in the caption, “Little girl … your parents are awaiting 🙏🏻 and we CAN’T WAIT to meet you 😍.”
