It’s a girl for the Aldeans! Jason Aldean and his wife Brittany shared the sex of their second child on Instagram a couple of days ago.today. The couple wanted to do something special for Kendyl and Keeley Aldean, Jason’s kids from his first marriage. Brittany and Jason shared the same footage from the “gender reveal” on their Instagram accounts, with Brittany saying, “Jason and I already know what it is. This is just for the girls, to see their excitement.” The sisters both predicted their stepmother would be welcoming a baby girl, and they were equally elated after they took turns swinging at balls, which released a pink dust.
A baseball signed by Babe Ruth, Cy Young, Ty Cobb and more Hall of Famers set a record price for the most expensive signed baseball ever sold at auction. The ball, which was signed by 11 members who attended the first Baseball Hall of Fame ceremony in 1939, sold for $623,369. In addition to Ruth, Young and Cobb, early baseball greats like Honus Wagner, Walter Johnson and Connie Mack were part of the first ceremony in Cooperstown. The final sale was nearly double that of a Ruth-signed ball that sold for $388,375 in 2012, which was the previous record for a signed baseball.
And here’s a real heart-warmer: A Seattle, Washington man recently donated one of his kidneys to his wife of nearly 30 years. “We’re a team,” said Steve Kennedy. Last month, Steve donated his kidney to his wife, Lesley, who has long suffered from polycystic kidney disease, a condition that causes numerous cysts to grow in the kidneys. In Lesley’s case, the condition worsened to the point where she was put on dialysis. Her physicians informed her that she would need a transplant in order to survive. A short time later, Lesley’s co-worker and sister each offered to donate a kidney to her but neither were a match. That’s when Steve got tested, and sure enough he was a match. Steve posted an awesome picture of the two of them in the hospital after the surgery, which we are told was a success!
