As you can see from the pic above, Janay Rice is sho-nuff preggers. Congrats!

This will be baby number 2 for Janay and Ray Rice, an NFL free agent. The announcement was made by the couple on Saturday via Janay’s Instagram page. She also said she 21 weeks along and it looks like it, too. 🙂

Apparently they couple doesn’t know the sex of their future baby just yet, but they’ve already got a 4-year-old daughter named Rayven.

Of course it’s wonderful to see Ray and Janay Rice spreading the news that their second child is on the way. These are apparently good times for the couple, but of course it was that long ago that they were dealing with serious drama that end Rays tenure with the Baltimore Ravens and possibly his entire professional football career.

Here’s a recap, courtesy of Wikipedia:
On February 15, 2014, Rice and his then fiancée (now wife), Janay Palmer, were arrested and charged with assault after a physical altercation at the Revel Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Rice and Palmer were both highly intoxicated during the incident. Celebrity news website TMZ posted a video of Rice dragging Palmer out of an elevator after apparently knocking her out. The Ravens issued a statement following TMZ’s release of the video, calling Rice’s domestic violence arrest a “serious matter”. The matter was handled by the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office.

On March 27, 2014, a grand jury indicted Rice on third-degree aggravated assault, with a possible jail sentence of three to five years and a fine of up to $15,000. Rice married Palmer six weeks after the incident on March 28, 2014. For the incident, Rice was suspended for the first two games of the 2014 NFL season on July 25, 2014. The criminal charges were later dropped after Rice agreed to undergo court-supervised counseling. In a news conference announcing longer suspension lengths for future domestic violence incidents, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said that he “didn’t get it right” in deciding Rice’s punishment.

In January 2015, the Baltimore Ravens settled the claim after Rice filed a formal grievance against the NFL for wrongful termination. Rice demanded $3.5 million based on the claim that the Ravens imposed a second punishment upon him by terminating his employment weeks after the NFL levied a two-game suspension.Although the details of the settlement were not disclosed, it was estimated that he received most of his claim.
