Many parents will say the day their children were born is one of the happiest of their lives.

Seattle Seahawk Richard Sherman is just days away from one of the most important games of his life.

However, the Super Bowl is not the only thing on the cornerback’s mind.

Sherman and his girlfriend are expecting their first child, who is due any day now.

There is a possibility she could go into labor on Sunday.

Sherman was asked if he was prepared to miss the big game if his son arrives during the big game.

“I’m focused on the game right now. He’s not supposed to come on Sunday. Obviously, that could change,” Sherman said. “I think he’s going to be a disciplined young man and stay in there ’til after the game. He’s going to do his father the first favor and stay in there for another week or two.”

Sherman says there’s a plan in place and he doesn’t want to miss the birth of his first child.
