In the early hours of this morning PokerStars pro Jason Mercier tweeted to all his followers that his wife, Natasha, had given birth to a 7lb 3oz baby boy who they have named Marco Henry Mercier.

Astonishingly, just three days ago both Jason and Natasha were both playing in a PokerStars Charity Event Benefiting Feeding South Florida Hurricane Irma Relief at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino

Despite being about as heavily pregnant as you can get Natasha actually final tabled the event, eventually finishing 4th out of the 124 entries, locking up an $1,100 cash win plus a $3,500 Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open entry from the $300 buy-in tournament which raised over $55,000 for the charity.

And just a little over two days later...

Given that the Mercier's met on the poker circuit, that Jason proposed to Natasha seconds after she busted out of a WSOP final table, and that the pair of them were grinding out a tournament almost up until Natasha went into labour, we're guessing young Marco will have poker imprinted into his DNA!

Congratulations To Jason and Natasha from all of us here at HighstakesDB!
