Words can’t even describe how I feel right now. You are the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen in my life. Thank God for blessing me with you in my life and into my arms. I pray that I can be the best father to you and help you grow into an amazing woman. I love you so so so much #DaddysLittleGirl Jada Clare Barkley 4.24.18 ??

"It’s awesome. I’m excited. I’m not sure of the gender, that’s going to be a surprise, but April’s going to be a big month for me. Some people aren’t even blessed with the opportunity to have kids, and I’m able to have one, and I’m truly excited to be a father."

Now, you’re not just training for yourself and training to be great; this is how you provide for your family, and you also have to look at football from the business side. Obviously, you want to play the sport and have fun with it, but now it’s bigger than you, you have a family to provide for, and I’m super excited and everything I’m doing is for myself and my kid."
