Philadelphia Eagles center Jason Kelce missed practice on Wednesday. Now, we know why he wasn’t with his teammates.
Kelce announced on Thursday through Instagram the birth of his daughter that his wife Kylie had. This is the couple’s first child.
Wyatt Elizabeth Kelce arrived into this world. She weighed eight pounds and six ounces.
According to Heavy.com, Kelce has credited his success to his parents. He said his mom and dad encouraged him to pursue his dreams.
“My father and mother told me to stay after my dream,” he said after the Eagles won the Super Bowl. “And I’ve officially accomplished the best thing in this sport with a group of guys, who mean the world to me.”
If Kelce does not play against the New York Jets on Sunday as he stays with his wife and newborn during her first few days on earth, the Eagles plan on using Halapoulivaati Vaitai at center. He was taking snaps at the position on Wednesday when Kelce was with his wife.
