Aaron Hernandez welcomes baby girl

Published On November 8, 2012 | By Kimberly Petalas

New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez had a good reason to celebrate his birthday on November 6.

Not only did he turn 23, he also welcomed his first daughter into the world.

Hernandez’s brother D.J. officially broke the news to the twitter world.

D.J., who’s a graduate assistant for the University of Miami’s football team, tweeted “Love u bro” with this picture of Aaron holding his newborn baby.

D.J. also tweeted that the baby’s name is Avielle Janelle Hernandez.

Hernandez has been out with an ankle injury, so it must have been a relief to miss practice for a more exciting reason.

He was back at practice on Wednesday morning, according to ESPN. As of right now, it looks like Hernandez will be playing in Sunday’s game against the Buffalo Bills.
