Jimmy Rollins, wife Johari expecting their first child

Congratulations to Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins and wife Johari who are expecting their first child.

We had been trying to confirm that she was pregnant for more than a week when, there, buried in an ESPN.com story about J-Roll’s trip to help Ugandan Little League players, that “At the end of each day, he goes back to his hotel and writes in his journal so that his wife, Johari, who is pregnant with their first child, can experience what he has been seeing and doing.”

No word yet on when Johari, a Mount Airy native fitness instructor is due. She has not returned requests for comment, nor have several representatives of Jimmy’s.
