Van Jefferson’s new son’s name might be the best thing you’ll hear all day.
The Los Angeles Rams wide receiver revealed what he decided to call his child after he was born on the same day as the Super Bowl.
“We decided on Champ Jefferson,” he said. “It’s very fitting. That’s very fitting for the type of situation we just had.”
“That wasn’t always the planned name, but after the way everything happened on Super Bowl Sunday, it was only appropriate to go with Champ.
“It wasn’t always picked,” he said. “We were really thinking about ‘Wynn’ and ‘Miles’ but then it was like, I think it’s very fitting to name him Champ. And we just looked it up and Champ is like a warrior. And my wife is a warrior. What she did that whole game and what she did throughout the whole week of the Super Bowl, the week of Super Bowl being so crazy, he’s a champ and she’s a warrior, so Champ Curtis Jefferson. That’s the name we got.”
Jefferson and his wife couldn’t have picked a more fitting name for their new child. He said the timing of the Super Bowl and birth of their son is something he and his wife will “always cherish, something we will always remember and be grateful for.”
Jefferson and his wife Samaria welcomed Champ shortly after the Rams won the Super Bowl last week when they defeated the Cincinnati Bengals.
During the game, Samaria went into labor and had to be carried out of the stadium on a stretcher. She made it clear that nobody told him until after the game was over and cameras caught that moment.
