Beating the Seattle Seahawks to advance to the NFC Championship Game made for a great weekend for Atlanta Falcons guard Andy Levitre. But, it wasn’t the best thing to happen to him and his family last week. The guard and his wife, Katie, welcomed a daughter into the world.
While the news of a newborn is certainly something to celebrate by itself, the story of how their daughter came into the world is crazier than most you’ll hear. Levitre told FOX 5 that his wife went into labor before the Seahawks game started, but stayed to watch the whole game. From the story:
“My wife went into labor right before the game started. She came to the game and sat through the game while she was in labor, and I didn’t know about this until after the game when I was walking off the field and one of the football ops guys told me she was in labor. So I went, showered up, came outside, we went home for like an hour, went to the hospital, and she gave birth.”
That’s some impressive dedication from Levitre’s wife to stay through the entire game despite going through labor pains. Congratulations to the Levitre family on their new addition.
