|Real Name:||Baylee Marie Roethlisberger|
|Birthday:||March 12, 2014|
|Occupation:||Daughter of Ben Roethlisberger and Ashley Marie Harlan|
Born in March 2014, Baylee Marie Roethlisberger is just 8 years old as of January 2023. But how is she part of the media craziness? Baylee came to the limelight as the daughter of former American football quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. Also known as Big Ben, he played for 18 years for the Pittsburgh Steelers.
And in the world of Hollywood, one celebrity father is more than enough to be part of the limelight. Here is everything we know about Ben’s daughter.
Who Is Her Father?
Before we can talk about Baylee, we have to get to know her father. Born Benjamin Todd Roethlisberger Sr., he earned the nickname Big Ben. The American former football player spent 18 years in the National Football League. He played as a quarterback for the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Before that, he played college football at Miami and was selected by the Steelers in the 2004 NFL Draft. Here is a fun fact: At Findlay High School in Findlay, Ohio, he was the captain of the football, basketball, and baseball teams.
And he didn’t even play quarterback until his senior year. Instead, he played wide receiver. At the time, the coach’s son, Ryan Hite, played quarterback. In a 2004 interview, Hite said that there was no nepotism or miscalculation. It was just, “We did a bunch of drills and my son throwing to Ben was a better combination”.
Here is another fun fact. Ryan Hite went on to Denison University where he played wide receiver, and set numerous career and single-season records by the time he graduated.
Drafted in 2004, Ben Roethlisberger earned the AP NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year award in 2004 and his first Pro Bowl selection in 2007. He became the youngest Super Bowl-winning quarterback in 2006, helping the Steelers win the title in his second season. In that Super Bowl, the Steelers earned a 21-10 victory over the Seattle Seahawks. Ben was 23 at the time.
He then led his team to a second Super Bowl title in four seasons as they defeated the Arizona Cardinals in Super Bowl XLIII, with a 27-23 score. Ben completed a game-winning touchdown pass to Santonio Holmes with only 35 seconds left in the game.
In Super Bowl XLV, he appeared in his third Super Bowl, but his team lost to the Green Bay Packers, 31-25.
To this day, he remains one of the most prolific passers in NFL history. Following his retirement, he ranked 5th all-time in NFL career passing yards with 64,088 and 8th all-time in touchdowns with 418.
He is known for playing outside the passing pocket. It is what Ben calls backyard football. He grew up idolizing John Elway and wore Number 7 in his honor.
Youngest QB To Win A Super Bowl
To this day, Ben remains the youngest quarterback to win the Super Bowl. He won Super Bowl XL at 23 years and 340 days. The closest that someone has come is Patrick Mahomes.
Patrick won his first and only Super Bowl with the Kansas City Chiefs at the age of 24 years and 184 days. Tom Brady, arguably the greatest QB of all time, won his first Super Bowl at 24 years and 184 days.
Who Is Her Mother?
Here is a fun fact, Baylee has two famous parents. And both of them played professional sports. Her mother is Ashley Marie Harlan.
Born in Lawrence County, Pennsylvania, she was raised in New Castle. She is the only daughter among two brothers, Brandon Harlan and Brent Harlan.
She played many sports, including basketball, softball, and volleyball during her high school years.
Ashley was described as an athletic young woman. But she left the sports world and got a degree in health science. She now works as an assistant to physicians in the cardiac surgery department at the UPMC Presbyterian Hospital in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
Here is a fun fact. Ashley was an avid sports lover and won the WPIAL Class AA Championship, and was nominated as an All-American.
But her instinct for nurturing changed her career path. She made a commitment to study medicine and help people.
Her Parents’ Relationship
Ashley and Ben Roethlisberger are among the most popular and lovable couples in the sports world. She met him at a training camp in 2005. At the time, her brother, a diehard fan of the NFL quarterback, introduced the two.
It was an instant mutual attraction and affection. They dated for several years. During their first years, their relationship hit several road bumps. There were multiple sexual assault allegations against Big Ben.
But he was later acquitted on all charges. Ashley and Ben tied the knot in July 2011 at the Christ Church in Grove Farms, Pennsylvania. They welcomed their firstborn, Benjamin Jr. in 2012, followed by Baylee in 2014 and Bodie in 2016.
They are a picture-perfect family that lives in Pennsylvania.
How much do we know about Baylee Marie Roethlisberger? Aside from the fact she is Big Ben’s daughter, not much.
She was born on March 12, 2014. That means she is now eight years old. The details about her body measurements, early life, or any educational background are little to none.
She lives in Gibsonia, PA, with her family. Baylee is the youngest child in the Roethlisberger family. She has two brothers, Benjamin Todd Roethlisberger and Bodie Roethlisberger.
Bayle Roethlisberger is the only daughter of Ben and Ashley. There is no information about where she goes to school.
Is She On Social Media?
As we said before, Baylee is too young to be in the public eye. She is just eight years of age. So, she doesn’t have any social media accounts.
Her father is not much active on social media as well. He has less than 1,000 followers on Instagram.
When you are too young to be on social media, you are also too young to earn money, right? Baylee might not have to work in the near future thanks to the wealth of her father.
Big Ben has a net worth of more than $100 million, all of which he earned during his playing days. Fun fact: Ben has a nice car collection, with his Ferrari 488 GTB the standout among the vehicles.
