Seahawks’ Richard Sherman ‘ecstatic’ over birth of his son

By on February 5, 2015

Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman didn't reveal what he would do if girlfriend went into labor on Super Bowl Sunday, but ultimately did not have to make tough decision as baby was born Thursday.

Richard Sherman isn’t a two-time Super Bowl champ. But the outspoken Seahawks star cornerback is now a father.

Sherman’s girlfriend Ashley Moss gave birth to the couple’s first child on Thursday morning.

“My son sure does know how to make an entrance,” Sherman wrote on Twitter. “2/5/15 … Is it a coincidence or is he just that clever?! Either way I’m ecstatic.”

According to Sports Illustrated’s Peter King the couple named their son Rayden.

The possibility that Sherman’s girlfriend would go into labor on Super Bowl Sunday was a hot topic of conversation leading up to the big game.

Richard Sherman, walks off after heartbreaking loss to the Patriots, had been a key topic of debate leading up to Sunday’s Super Bowl XLIX.

Sherman played coy about his plans in the week leading up to the Super Bowl. The couple reportedly had made arrangements for Moss to give birth at a local hospital.

The Seahawks suffered a heartbreaking 28-24 loss to the Patriots on Sunday when Russell Wilson was intercepted attempting a heavily-criticized pass from the one-yard line with 20 seconds left.

Sherman didn’t take home football’s ultimate prize on Sunday, but he got quite the consolation prize Thursday morning.
