Richard Sherman couldn’t have asked for a better day to meet his newborn son! The NFL player’s girlfriend gave birth to their first son on Feb. 5. Yes, 2/5 — Richard’s jersey number!
Richard Sherman, 26, may have not walked away with a Super Bowl championship ring on Feb. 1, but he has something even better — a new baby! The Seattle Seahawks’ cornerback’s girlfriend, Ashley Moss, gave birth to their first child, Rayden, on Feb. 5. Such a fitting date!
Richard Sherman & Girlfriend Welcome First Baby — Congrats
Not only did Richard’s son postpone his big debut for after the Super Bowl, he wound up arriving on the perfect day.
For those of you who may not understand the significance of the date, let us explain. The newborn came into the world on Feb. 5, that’s 2/5 — and Richard’s uniform number for the Seattle Seahawks is 25.
What are the odds? Obviously, Rayden’s dad was beyond excited to finally meet his first son, but this made it all the more sweeter!
“My son sure does know how to make an entrance! 2/5/15… Is it a coincidence or is he just that clever?! Either way I’m ecstatic,” the NFL star tweeted.
Only one day old and yet this little boy has already won his father over!
Richard Was Worried He Would Miss The Big Game
Prior to the Super Bowl, there was discussion of the possibility that Ashley could go into labor during the big game — but Richard was confident that Rayden would do him the biggest favor and stay put until after the game.
He told Fox Sports, “He’s going to be a disciplined young man and stay in there. He’s going to do his father his first favor.”
Obviously, he listened to his daddy!
It’s great that everything worked out — well, minus the outcome of the big game. But hey, Richard has a new baby and that’s the real prize!
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers, is this a sign Richard’s little boy will play football when he grows up? Let us know!
