64-year-old Broadway Joe has become a grandfather. Okay, big deal…but when it’s your 16-year-old daughter giving birth, I think that’s a big deal. Joe Namath’s 16-year-old daughter, Olivia Namath, gave birth to little Natalia on May 21st in West Palm Beach. He is said to be “very happy” about the birth.
“There are some things in life that are wonderful, and this is one of them. I’m just happy that everyone’s healthy.”
Olivia Namath, Joe Namath’s 19-year-old daughter, was arrested early Sunday for possession of alcohol under the age of 21 and two counts of possession of marijuana. She was driving a silver Mercedes and pulled over by a Palm Beach County Sheriff deputy after she was spotted going 58 mph in a 50 mph zone. The deputy smelled marijuana and a searched ensued. A bag of ‘greens‘ was later tested and was positive for pot. More baggies were found in the trunk as well along with an open bottle of Captain Morgan rum and 11 Miller Light beer bottles. Olivia maintains that she had ‘no knowledge’ of the pot.
The original post continues below…
Olivia is Joe’s youngest child with his ex-wife Tatiana. They divorced in 1999. They have another daughter, Jessica, who is 21 years old.
A source told the NY Daily News that Olivia was 15 when she became pregnant but that Joe was thrilled with the pregnancy. Namath’s ex, Tatiana, will raise the child, who is now 2 months old. Evidently Tatiana already picked up the baby and brought her to California, where she lives. Olivia will stay with Joe in Tequesta, as she’s still in high school.
They are also reporting that 19-year-old Edwin Baker is listed as the father on the birth certificate. There is an Edwin Baker, 19, of Jupiter, Florida (which is near Tequesta) that’s been arrested three times in the past year for possession of crystal meth, grand theft, and burglary. Sounds like a winner, eh?
Geez, 16 years old and already a Momma. Come on Joe, it’s every parent’s nightmare to have a 16-year-old daughter become pregnant, you can’t tell me you were thrilled to hear that news.
So I guess this is the perfect time to bust out the video of Joe slurring it up and makin’ the moves on Suzy Kolber back in 2003.
