Ben and Julianna Zobrist Welcome Son Zion Benjamin
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.”
“Ben was right next to me the whole time, coaching and encouraging me through the entire labor and delivery. And now we are speechless and honored to be able to hold and love our little Zion! God deserves much awe and reverence for being such a Creator!”
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.
