Nessa Kaepernick and Colin Kaepernick announced some big news on Sunday night.

Their first child was born earlier this month, and the former NFL quarterback is now a father.

As Nessa said, "I've been thinking hard about sharing our life-changing news today.". 

Today is the first day in a few weeks that I have stepped out for work as "MOM!".

The arrival of our amazing baby a few weeks ago has made Colin and I overjoyed.

There has been a long-term relationship between Colin and Nessa.

Sharing this with you has helped me connect with you in a way I hadn't anticipated. 

I have already noticed a change in my conversations and life experiences.

My sweet baby has taught me to love in ways I could never have imagined," Nessa said.
