Nick Allegretti’s twin daughters are just two of the the three babies the team welcomed within 24 hours of their Super Bowl win
The Kansas City Chiefs gained two new fans just hours ahead of winning Super Bowl LVII.
Defensive lineman Nick Allegretti and wife Christina welcomed twin girls, with the 26-year-old NFL star watching the birth unfold in Chicago via FaceTime from the team’s Arizona hotel while his teammates slept on the morning of Sunday, Feb. 8.
“It’s the best day of my life no matter what – 3:30, 4 a.m. – I became a dad, father of two daughters. Unbelievable. And now, I’ve got a ring for both of them. Incredible, cannot believe it,” Allegretti told Chief’s Digest, per Good Morning America.
The couple first announced that they would become parents at Thanksgiving, with Christina sharing a family photo along with a pregnancy announcement photo where she and Nick held two tiny pairs of white sneakers.
“So much to be thankful for this year!” they captioned the joint post.
Surprisingly, the Allegretti twins aren’t the only Super Bowl babies the Chiefs welcomed. Mecole Hardman Jr. and girlfriend Chariah Gordon welcomed a baby boy early on Feb. 9 after the wide receiver tweeted that his little one was on the way before the big game.
Hardman, 24, tweeted that his girlfriend went into labor early Sunday morning ahead of the big game, where his team played against the Philadelphia Eagles at the 2023 Super Bowl.
The Kansas City Chiefs welcomed two new fans to the world on Super Bowl Sunday with a third apparently on the way.
Chiefs offensive lineman Nick Allegretti’s wife, Christina, gave birth in the early hours to twin girls back home in Chicago, a team official confirmed to The Associated Press. Allegretti was able to watch everything unfold on FaceTime from the lobby of the team hotel while the rest of the Chiefs slept ahead of their game against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Allegretti, who has started three games this season, will be available for the Chiefs in the big game.
About the same time his wife was giving birth, Chiefs wide receiver Mecole Hardman tweeted that his girlfriend, Chariah Gordeon, had gone into labor. Hardman went on injured reserve this week and was not available to play in the game.
There are plenty of Eagles on baby watch, too.
Starting center Jason Kelce, whose brother Travis is a tight end for Kansas City, and his wife are expecting their third child at any moment. In fact, Kylie Kelce, who is 38 weeks pregnant, has said that her obstetricians would be on hand at State Farm Stadium on Sunday should the baby make a dramatic appearance during the game.
“We haven’t talked too much game plan if it happens during the Super Bowl,” Jason Kelce said, “but I like to think my wife will not tell me. And just find a way to hold off, hopefully ’til after the game for the actual delivery
“OMG HER WATER BROKE,” Hardman wrote, along with several eye emojis.
After 5:00 a.m. after the Super Bowl win, Hardman tweeted, “He’s HERE !!!!!! 😈😈😈.”
