TY Hilton Touchdown Celebration and Emotional Post-Game Interview Pay Tribute to Newborn Daughter (Video

ty hilton touchdown celebration pays tribute to newborn daughter

If you happened to tune in to yesterday’s Colts-Jags game with the volume muted—and TY Hilton is not on your fantasy football team—you might have seen that TY Hilton touchdown celebration and thought something along the lines of, “Why the hell is he cradling the football like a baby?”

If you had the volume on, though—or if you do have Hilton on your fantasy team—you knew why he was cradling the football like that. Hilton’s wife Shantrell gave birth to a baby girl early Sunday morning, and for a while it was unclear whether he would actually make it to Lucas Oil Field in time for kickoff.

However, Hilton’s agent confirmed that he would be there via Twitter yesterday morning. And he also confirmed that Hilton planned to score a touchdown for his baby girl.

So when Hilton did score a touchdown for his baby girl—a beautiful 73-yard strike in the third quarter that put the nail in the Jag’s coffin—he had a special touchdown celebration all ready to go.

Take a look:

Then an emotional Hilton gave what will surely go down as one of the greatest post-game interviews in NFL history.

I don’t know about you, but that totally made my week.
