“We are ecstatic to announce the birth of Jonah Frank King. Our amazing son is named for two of our heroes; my mom, Joan King, and Dana’s grandfather, Frank Weinman. Unlike either of his parents, Jonah beat his deadline. By two weeks no less. But he is a healthy, happy six pounds 14 ounces with a strong grip and a passion for the Red Sox. Dana is doing great. Speechless at times. But healthy and overjoyed at our miracle.”
