RENTON, Wash. -- Just as Richard Sherman predicted, his new son was a disciplined young man.
Sherman's girlfriend, Ashley Moss, gave birth to the couple's first child, Rayden, Thursday morning, four days after the Super Bowl. Sherman tweeted about the birth around 4 a.m. PST.
"My son sure does know how to make an entrance! 2/5/15... Is it a coincidence or is he just that clever?! Either way I'm ecstatic," Sherman, whose jersey number is 25, tweeted.
The pending birth and what Sherman would do if Moss - who was in Arizona with the team - went into labor around game time became one of the biggest stories of Super Bowl week.
Three days before the game, Sherman joked, "I think he's going to be a disciplined young man and stay in there until after the game. He's going to do his father his first favor and stay in there for another week or two."
