JoAnna Garcia, Nick Swisher Share Precious Baby Photo of Daughter Emerson Jay
"Who's ready to see Emerson Jay Swisher?!" the proud 33-year-old mom tweeted Tuesday afternoon. "Nick and I would like you all to meet our little angel." In the precious snapshot, a sleeping 4-week-old Emerson snoozes away in a tiny wicker basket covered by a violet-colored blanket.
Yellow, purple and red flowers and vines serve as a backdrop to her slumber.
The couple, who tied the knot in 2010, have been vocal about how excited they are to welcome a baby into their home throughout Garcia's pregnancy.

"I am so excited. I never in a million years thought I'd have a little girl, but over the last six months, the pink and purple dresses that I've bought, I'm telling you. …My wife Jo, she says, 'You're going to spoil that little girl so much.' I can't wait, man," Cleveland Indians first baseman Swisher said in an interview with Yahoo! last month.
"I talk to her every night," he continued. "Jo and I, we're so excited to meet her and to bring her in the world and give her a whole lot of love."
Just one week after giving birth to Emerson, Garcia took to Twitter to thank her fans for being so supportive throughout the entire pregnancy.
"Since the arrival of baby Emerson, Nick and I have been so filled with love, joy and gratitude," she wrote on Twitter at the time. "Finally getting the chance to check back in with twitter and I'm totally overwhelmed by the outpouring of love … you twerps are the best! Thank you!"
