Break out the cigars. Pittsburgh Steelers receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster gave birth to a football Sunday after his 18-yard touchdown reception against the Atlanta Falcons in Pittsburgh.
Smith-Schuster simulated the blessed moment by lying on his back and delivering the 15-ounce, oblong bundle of joy as teammate James Conner played midwife. Smith-Schuster cradled the newborn after the very public delivery, and then Conner tackled him. We’re pretty sure that’s not in the maternity playbook.
Smith-Schuster later posted a birth announcement on Twitter. “The gift of life! The gift of a touchdown!” he wrote.
