Adam Jones really knows how to make an entrance and that includes for his new baby. The Cincinnati Bengals cornerback took to Instagram on Saturday night to welcome his son to the world. The baby was born just hours before the Bengals’ game against the Cleveland Browns.
Jones and his wife Tishana Holmes welcomed Adam Jr. to the world late Saturday night. (Naturally, the baby would be named Adam Jr.) Adam Jr. will join his sister Trinity Jones as the only two children for the couple.
Jones has another daughter, Zaniyah, from a previous relationship.
Jones has already given the baby the nickname “Lil Pacman,” which couldn’t be a better name for the little guy.
Jones is going to be playing for the Bengals today when they take on the winless Browns. He’s returning from a concussion, suffered during the Titans game. He missed the Broncos game as a result.
Jones will probably be extra motivated to create a memorable play for his new son, and I’m sure DeShone Kizer will be more than happy to throw a gift his way.
Update: During the Bengals’ win over the Browns, Jones almost scored a punt return touchdown. Unfortunately, the touchdown was called back due to a penalty on the return. Before he found out his touchdown didn’t count, Jones and a bunch of his Bengals teammates performed a mock-birth celebration on the field. It was great and Jones deserved to keep the touchdown, even if there was a penalty by Cethan Carter on the play.
To celebrate the recent birth of his son, @REALPACMAN24 “gives birth” in TD celebration. Too bad the TD didn’t stick. #bengals pic.twitter.com/atEguYb8dm— Flying Pigskin (@flying_pigskin) November 26, 2017
Isn’t there a rule that if you have a baby within 24 hours of an NFL game penalty rules don’t apply to you? No? OK, we made that up, but the touchdown still should have counted as a way to honor Adam Jr.
