The Canadian baseball player's love for Paulus flourished after she became his support system through the grief of his father's passing.
There is not much information about Jeanne or their relationship as Votto is not on social media and has kept his personal matters to himself.
But from what we know, the beautiful Jeanne is a dental hygenist, and she has been in his life for more than 5 years.
Although Votto's personal life is not much known, his career front has given him a name that would forever be written in the history of baseball.
Recently, he proved that he is not only a perfect player but also a perfect human being when he gifted his little fan something so special that it made her heart melt.
A Fan Favourite
The Canadian professional baseball player is a baseman for Cincinnati Reds. Unfortunately, the MLB player got evicted from his game in the first inning (2021).
Another Cincinnati Reds Fame:
On a series of unfortunate events on the field, Votto lost his cool and was enraged at Additon, the umpire of the game.
Votto struck out a check-swing after an appeal to the third-base umpire Chirs Guccione. However, he had few words for the third-base umpire while he was headed out of the field.
But upon hearing umpire Ryan Additon's words exchange for him, he got upset and was thrown out of the game.
Although some people were pleased to lose a threat from the game, not everyone was on the same page.
A particular fan was present to watch the game just for the Canadian player, but her hopes of watching him play were shattered after he got evicted.
Her mother shared the little fan's teary picture on her Instagram, which soon blew up and reached the player.
Upon seeing the picture, Joey could not keep it to himself and decided to send a little note to the beautiful girl.
Votto signed on a baseball and apologized to the little girl for not completing the game. He wrote,
"I am Sorry I didn't play the entire game"

Votto then sent the ball to the little girl, and well, her smile says it all. So it seems like the apology is accepted.
Looking at his behavior towards children, it is intriguing to think how much love he would shower to his own.
