Ben Roethlisberger Wife
Ben Roethlisberger is married to a woman by the name of Ashley Harlan. The pair dated on and off for 6 years prior to finally tying the knot in July of 2011. Prior to meeting Harlan, it seemed Roethlisberger was not the type to settle down, especially given his partying lifestyle off the field – but 8 years of marital bliss and 3 children later, it seems Roethlisberger has finally settled into his new role as a husband and family man.
Ashley Harlan Ben Roethlisberger
Roethlisberger met his wife-to-be after her brother, a huge Steelers fan, saw the athlete and approached him to introduce himself. Upon meeting Harlan’s sister, Ashley, however, Roethlisberger decided to ask her on a date. Several years of dating would follow, but the couple’s relationship would have rough patches, especially when Ben was accused of rape by a casino hostess in 2008, and then accused again in 2010 by a Georgia college student. The charges against the athlete were later dropped, and he and Ashley would survive both ordeals and go on to marry on July 23, 2011, in Sewickley, PA, with over 500 guests in attendance, one of which was the mayor of Pittsburgh, Luke Ravenstahl.
The couple now shares 3 children together; Benjamin Jr. (born 2012), Baylee (born 2014), and Bodie (born 2016).
Ashley Roethlisberger (formally Ashley Harlan) is a Pennsylvania native born in Lawrence County and raised in Newcastle. She attended Laurel High School in 2004 and excelled in basketball, volleyball, and softball. Though she continued playing softball during her college years at St. Francis University, she never sought sports as a potential career; instead, she graduated with a degree in health science in 2009 and went on to earn her Master of Physicians Assistant degree.
Following school, Ashley went on to work at the Presbyterian Hospital in Pittsburgh, PA, in their cardiac surgery department. She married Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger in 2011 and the couple remains husband and wife.
