    Is she waiting on a divorce to become final the reason they aren't already married? When was their engagement originally announced? I don't recall reading about it anywhere until now.

    I see. I wonder if he ever had setbacks or injury to this hip in the past?

    Mazal Tov to Todd, Sabrina, big brother Ryder, and baby Ayrton! I think it's also kind of cool that Sabrina's son is named Ryder (thinking Ryder Cup here). Pure coincidence, but I still think kind of neat.

    You're welcome. I know lots of folks don't frequent the Trash Can forum, so that's why I posted a link here. Thanks for bumping up this thread to update Ayrton Zen Eldredge's birth. :)

    Todd tweeted this new photo ("forgot to attach pic of his first racing suit! Here he is!"): http://twitter.com/toddeldredge/status/207487696363458562/photo/1/large

    He also tweeted this May 24th update:
    "1month from surgery! Driving, coaching & trying 2 walk most of time w/o my cane. Week 5 goal no cane at all! Hoping 2 hit the ice in 2 weeks"

    That picture of the baby is so cute!
    Wishing Todd a continuing, uneventful recovery.

    First off...That picture of Ayrton in his racing suit is just too beyond adorable for words.

    Second, thanks for starting the thread over at the Trash Can Sylvia, but I hope we still have the announcements over here too. I rarely visit the Trash Can, so would miss any new additions to the Families of skaters if it wasn't also posted over here at GSD too.

    Just putting that out there. :)

    Sorry I saw this thread so late. I love Todd! He is one of my all time favs and so happy to hear of little Ayrton's birth. Love the photo of the baby in the F1 driver's uniform! Michael Schumacher should be very worried! :respec:
