Alejandro Valverde shared his Caisse d'Epargne team's joy for the day with Joaquim Rodríguez. "This is really a happy day for our team," said Valverde, "because this morning my team-mate, Joaquím Rodríguez became a father for the very first time. This morning his wife Yolanda gave birth to a son, Pablo!"
Pablo weighed in at 3,100 grams and measured 49cm. He was born in Barcelona. "Everything went very well and fast. We entered the hospital at eight in the morning and he was born at eleven," said Rodríguez. Mother and baby are doing well.
