During Super Bowl LVII, Mecole Hardman Jr., Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver, had an invaluable memento. Prior to the game, Hardman announced on Twitter that his girlfriend, Chariah Gordon, had gone into labor as her waters had broken. Additionally, Nick Allegretti, a Chiefs guard, and his wife Christina welcomed two babies – their twin girls.
The Chiefs Welcome Three Babies
Following Hardman’s Twitter announcement, he received numerous congratulations. The couple had previously revealed their pregnancy to the public during a gender reveal party in October. Meanwhile, Hardman’s team, the Kansas City Chiefs, played against the Philadelphia Eagles in the Super Bowl. Despite Hardman’s absence due to an injury, the Chiefs secured their third Super Bowl victory in franchise history and their second during the Patrick Mahomes era.
Prior to Super Bowl Sunday, Mecole Hardman Jr. was not the sole Kansas City Chiefs player anticipating the arrival of a child. Nick Allegretti, a guard for the Chiefs, had twin girls with his wife Christina earlier that day. According to Pelissero’s tweet, Nick, along with his parents, had a live FaceTime session with Christina and her family from the hotel lobby, welcoming the two babies to the Chiefs Kingdom.
Jason and Kylie Have a Baby Girl
There was another addition to the list of newborn football babies but this time from the opposing team. The center for the Eagles, Jason Kelce, and his wife, Kylie, welcomed a baby girl. The couple had made arrangements for doctors to be present at the game in case Kylie went into labor. On the New Heights With Jason and Travis Kelce podcast, which the football star co-hosts with his brother Travis, Jason mentioned that his in-laws, two daughters, and Kylie’s obstetrician were also present at the game. Given that Kylie was 38 weeks pregnant during the game, it seemed appropriate to bring her doctor along. It is worth noting that Kylie didn’t go into labor during the game but gave birth to their daughter, Wyatt Elizabeth, about a week after the Super Bowl.
