Natasha Mercier Gives Birth To Second Son Matteo Richard1 month ago
Highstakes poker legend Jason Mercier and wife Natasha have just revealed the latest addition to their Happy Families deck of cards, a bouncing baby boy named Matteo Richard!
Little Matteo, who weighed in at 8 lbs 10oz, joins big brother Marco Henry – the couples first child born almost exactly 2 years ago and proud dad Jason jokingly thanked his wife for ‘waiting until the 4 pm NFL games were over to go into labor’…
Although poker has taken something of a back seat for the Merciers, for obvious reasons, Jason added a huge win to his tournament CV this summer by taking down the Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open Super High Roller for $715,860.
The former PokerStars Team pro parted ways with the site soon after son Marco was born, stating of their first son’s birth:
“My life was changed forever that day, and for the better. Becoming a parent brings about a complete transformation of who you are.”
Wife Natasha, nee Barbour before the pair married in 2016, is also a very talented poker player in her own right. The Lebanese-born pro – turned – mother boasts over $1.2million winnings on her tournament resume.
With both mother and new-born both doing well, PokerTube sends its warmest congratulations to the happy family.
