It was already shaping up to be a memorable week for Saquon Barkley and now it’ll be that much more epic after his girlfriend gave birth to the couple’s first child.

The running back and girlfriend Anna Congdon celebrated the birth of their first child on Tuesday, just a mere 48 hours before he’s going to find out where he’ll be taken in the 2018 NFL draft.

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 ❤

“I’m excited. Some people aren’t even blessed with the opportunity to have kids, and I’m able to have one,” he said. “I’m truly excited to be a father.”

Barkley is expected to be among the top five players selected in Thursday night’s NFL draft.
