jose+fernandezThe daughter of Jose Fernandez was born in Miami Friday, just one day before the five-month anniversary of his death.

The baseball star’s girlfriend, Maria Arias, gave birth to baby Penelope on Friday night.

The name was chosen by Jose before the tragic boat accident that took his life five months ago.

Jose died with two companions in the early hours of September 25, when the boat they were traveling in crashed into a rocky barrier near the coast of Miami Beach. It was later revealed that he had alcohol and cocaine in his system.
