It looks like Seattle Seahawks player Richard Sherman could become a father while he plays in the 2015 Super Bowl against the New England Patriots!
The 26-year-old athlete’s girlfriend Ashley Moss is due to give birth to their son in early February, but there’s a possibility he could come early.
“I think he’s going to be a disciplined young man and stay in there until after the game,” Richard told reporters (via ESPN). “He’s going to do his father his first favor and stay in there for another week or two.”
As for whether he may have to skip the game, Richard said, “That’s a topic of debate? I’m focused on the game. He’s not supposed to come on Sunday. If he does, that would change some things. I’ve thought about the possibility of his coming during the game or coming before the game.”
He added, “We have things in place in case that happens. We’ll cross that bridge when we get there. But I didn’t know it was a topic of national debate, honestly. I would not like to miss the birth of my first kid, but hopefully and God willing, we won’t have to cross that bridge.”
