It will be another December delivery for Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb and wife Roxie. The couple — married since June 2003 — are expecting their fourth child this December, having welcomed twins Sariah and Donovan Jr., 10 ½ months, last December.

In announcing Roxie’s pregnancy, it was revealed that the couple have formed a partnership with the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Virtua Voorhees, the hospital in southern New Jersey where each of the McNabb children were born.

Donovan and Roxie pledged a six-figure donation to assist with the construction costs of the project — which is slated to open in 2011 — and vowed to help raise an additional $2.5 million from outside donors. According to reports the completed unit will be named the McNabb Family Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.

In addition to the twins, baby-on-the-way will join big sister Alexis, 5, at home.

I’m a Giants fan, but I applaud McNabb and his wife (and any athlete/celebrity) who donates money and time. Congratulations to McNabb and his family.

What a great thing to do, both in donating the money and promising to do additional fundraising! This brought a smile to my face 🙂

Maybe he’ll have kids who one day grow up and learn to throw a football better then he can (as of lately)…and I’m allowed to say that cause I’m an Eagles fan 😉 lol

I do love McNabb though. He’s a great guy all around.

Congrats to them!! Thats a lot to handle, 3 kids, a year and under, but it sounds fun too lol! And how wonderful it is what they’re doing for the hospital. I wonder if any of their children spent time in the NICU (perhaps the twins?) but either way, its a really great thing to do!
