Martin_bironPhiladelphia Flyers goalie Martin Biron and his wife Ann Marie welcomed daughter Emily Marie Biron at 7:54 am on Monday, April 14th via C-section.  She weighed 6 lbs, 10 oz and was 20 inches long. The 30-year-old dad stated that he and Ann Marie waited until Emily was born to decide on a name for her.

We spent a little time with her and figured that was really fitted for her and that was what we wanted to name her.

Emily is the third child for the couple.  They are also parents to Jacob Mathieu and Grace Anne.
