Perhaps Richard Sherman (pictured center) won’t be able to call himself a consecutive Super Bowl winner. But he got another great title recently: Dad.
The Seattle Seahawks cornerback’s girlfriend Ashley Moss gave birth to their first son early Thursday morning. Sherman Tweeted about his firstborn’s coincidental arrival, given that his jersey number is 25.
Media had speculated that Sherman might miss Sunday’s big game because Moss might go into labor then. However, he managed to appear at Super Bowl XLIX, in his team’s shocking 28-24 loss to the New England Patriots.
According to a Tweet by Peter King by Sports Illustrated, the couple has named their son Rayden. Congrats, Sherman!
