Meet Carlos’ Wife And Kids, Ashley
Ashley is now Rodón’s wife, and the couple tied the knot in Costa Rica in January 2018. They are parents to a son as well as a daughter together. By looking at her social media accounts, it seems like she likes to try new things. It is said that Carlos’s girlfriend may work for Open Season TV, which is a channel about hunting.
Because she prefers to keep a low profile, there isn’t a lot of information available online regarding the activities she prefers. One of her adorable daughters, Willow Rodon, often accompanies her mother to see her father play baseball. Her mother is a big baseball fan.
On Carlos’ birthday, his wife shared photos from their wedding day and other important moments in their relationship on Instagram. Ashley wrote, “Your 20s were great, but this will be your best decade yet.” “My love, happy 30th birthday! Every day, thank you for being my best friend. I really couldn’t live without you, Daddy Los. I love you!”

Carlos Rodón was born in the Florida city of Miami. When he was five years old, his father moved to the United States from Cuba. His mother is a Cuban-American. When he was young, his family moved to Holly Springs, North Carolina.
Rodón went to Holly Springs High School, where he played baseball for the school team. In 2010, he was a junior and had a no-hitter, two one-hitters, and four shutouts.

In 2011, he went 11-0, had a 1.40 earned run average, and struck out 135 batters. This helped Holly Springs win the North Carolina 4A state championship over T. C. Roberson High School, which was a national powerhouse.
In the 2011 Major League Baseball draft, Rodón was picked by the Milwaukee Brewers in the 16th round. He could have signed up to go to North Carolina State University, but he chose not to.
