Philadelphia Eagles

We might have an Eagles Super Bowl baby moment


Last year Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Van Jefferson learned just moments after winning the Super Bowl that his wife was giving birth to their son, Champ.

This year we could maybe, possibly have the same situation at Super Bowl LVII with Eagles center Jason Kelce and his wife Kylie.

Kelce said on his New Heights podcast, which he hosts with brother and Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, that his Super Bowl traveling party includes a good number of family members... and a medical professional.

Here's Kelce talking about the crew, and explaining why he could potentially leave Arizona with one extra family member in tow:

"JASON: I'm bringing Kylie's parents, I'm bringing the girls. Kylie's bringing her [obstetrician] because she's going to be 38 weeks pregnant at the game.

"TRAVIS: Dude.

"JASON: [Knowing look] It could be the Super Kelce Bowl.

"TRAVIS: If she has the baby -

"JASON: If she has the baby in the stadium, it's officially scripted.

"TRAVIS: [Laughing] We're in the Matrix."

First off, what are the odds that this would be a possibility two years in a row? Crazy.

Also, this isn't like we're talking 34 weeks pregnant and you're just being extra cautious. 38 weeks? That's right on the cusp of a full-term, which technically begins at 39 weeks. Jeez!

This isn't a total surprise: Kylie announced the pregnancy (it's a girl!) in mid-September on Instagram and pegged February 2023 as the due date, which we all know is when the Super Bowl takes place. But we've been a little distracted by the Eagles becoming the best football team in the NFL.

There's obviously still a chance the baby doesn't arrive until they get home, but the fact that they're flying the obstetrician across the country makes it seem entirely possible.

And we don't want to get ahead of ourselves because the Chiefs are great and it's going to be a great game, but if the Eagles do manage to win... what about the Super Bowl parade?

No matter what, it's going to be a particularly memorable next few weeks for Kelce and his family. Wow.
