Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick and his girlfriend, Nessa Diab, have welcomed their first baby.
Diab made the announcement via Instagram on Sunday afternoon.
“I thought a lot about sharing our life changing news today,” Diab wrote in the caption. “I decided to do it because today is the first day in a few weeks that I went out to work with a new life title: MOM!
“Colin and I welcomed our amazing baby boy into the world a few weeks ago and we are over the moon with our growing family.”

Niab, a radio host and MTV host, called Kaepernick, who remains a free agent, “the most amazing father” and said she is “grateful that he is by our side every moment of this journey.”
Kaepernick trained for the Las Vegas Raiders in May, but nothing came of the workout despite reports that Las Vegas was impressed with Kaepernick’s arm strength and conditioning. If anything, it was a positive sign that Kaepernick might be getting calls from other teams.

On the other hand, former NFL star Warren Sapp said he heard it was “one of the worst workouts ever.”
Kaepernick’s agent, Jeff Nalley, told Pro Football Talk that Sapp’s statement was simply not true.

“My guess is that Warren didn’t talk to the general manager or the head coach,” Nalley told the football website. “I talked to the general manager several times and he told me that everyone thought Kap was in great shape and he shot the ball very well and encouraged any team to call him about practice, and he told them the same thing. I’m surprised Warren would say that, because it’s not true, and you’d think he’d want Kap on a team.”
