Joe Flacco's Wife Gave Birth

It’s another boy for Joe! The Baltimore Ravens quarterback and his wife welcomed their second son, Daniel, on Sept. 15. Joe went on to play in the Ravens V. Browns game after missing the birth.

Joe Flacco and his beautiful wife Dana Grady welcomed their second child on Sept. 15 — just an hour before kickoff of the Ravens 2013 home opener! The quarterback missed the arrival of his son because he went on to play the game. He led his team to victory — but should he have been there while his wife was giving birth?

Joe Flacco’s Wife Gave Birth — Quarterback Started Against Browns

Joe’s son was born just an hour before the big game against the Cleveland Browns. Dana was reportedly due on Sept. 21 but went into labor on Sept. 14. The Super Bowl XLVII MVP started in the game mere minutes after missing the birth of his son.

The team’s Twitter broke the news of his baby boy’s arrival right after his birth:

Joe Flacco’s wife gave birth to the couple’s second child about 30 minutes ago. Flacco will play today vs. Browns.

“Baby Flacco is named Daniel,” the team announced. They then quoted Joe:

Joe Flacco: “Anytime you have a child, it’s one of your best days.

Joe and Dana married in June 2011. They have one other son together, Stephen Vincent Flacco, who is 15 months old.

Baltimore Ravens Win Game Against Cleveland Browns

The day wasn’t just great for Joe because of his baby, he also was a big part of the team’s victory! The Baltimore Ravens went on to win the game 14-6 against the Cleveland Browns moving them on to 1-1.

What do YOU think, HollyMoms? Do you think it’s upsetting that Joe missed the birth of his son? Or must the show — or game! — go on?
