The Seahawks may have lost the Super Bowl this year, but cornerback Richard Sherman still scored the ultimate trophy: a brand new baby boy!
What's even more amazing about the birth: Sherman's jersey number (25) is the same as his son's birth date! He shared a baby birth announcement on Twitter:
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

This is the first child for Sherman and his girlfriend. No name has been officially confirmed yet, but reports say their son's name is Rayden.
Speaking to the National Football Post, Sherman recently shared his views on being a father: "Everything they do is dependent on you and how you provide and how successful you are. As a parent, you want to set a great example for them, so I guess, to a degree, a lot of things are riding on it."
