Former NFL player Steve Gleason, who was diagnosed with ALS in 2011, and his wife Michel announced they are expecting their second child.  They will welcome a daughter in October.

Via ABC News:

Former New Orleans Saints player Steve Gleason hasn’t let his 2011 ALS diagnosis stop him from becoming a renowned champion for those suffering from the disease around the globe.

He and wife Michel aren’t letting it stop their family from growing either.

Steve and Michel confirmed publicly that they are expecting their second child, a daughter, in October, thanks to a successful in vitro fertilization procedure.

Steve and his wife haven’t let his disease slow them down.  They’re living life as they would if he didn’t have ALS and that’s pretty awesome.

Congratulations to the former Saint and his growing family.  For those of you not aware, here is Gleason’s best play in the NFL.
