Philadelphia Eagles center Jason Kelce has revealed that his pregnant wife is doing some serious game prep before the Super Bowl LVII.
On February 12, the 35-year-old footballer’s team will face off against the Kansas City Chiefs for the title at the State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.
By the time of the face-off, his wife, Kylie McDevitt, will be 38 weeks pregnant – just two weeks shy of the average duration of pregnancy.
The soon-to-be dad of three talked about his wife’s preparations ahead of the birth with his brother Travis Kelce on their podcast – New Heights with Jason and Travis Kelce – during a discussion about which family members would be watching from the sidelines.
The siblings first spoke about how they will play against each other next week as the 33-year-old is a tight end for the Kansas City Chiefs.
“Are mom and dad sitting on your sideline? Are they sitting on my sideline?”, Jason asked, to which Travis replied: “We do have to figure that out because we each get a certain amount of tickets, and I feel like you’re going to have more of a family-oriented thing.”
The Eagles star then said that he will be bringing his wife’s parents, and his two daughters, Elliotte Ray, 22 months, and Wyatt, three, before adding: “Kylie’s bringing her OB because she’s going to be 38 weeks pregnant at the game.”
“Dude! Dude,” the Kansas footballer reacted and the player jested: “That could be a Super Kelce Bowl. If she has a baby in the stadium, it’s officially scripted.”
“We’re in the Matrix,” he replied. “There’s no f***ing way.”
The precaution is understandable as just last year, Samaria Jefferson, the wife of Los Angeles Rams receiver Van Jefferson, was rushed from the Super Bowl on a stretcher to deliver her son at the hospital.
The 26-year-old player was informed that his wife was in labor and quickly rushed to her side after the Rams defeated the Cincinnati Bengals.

In a heartwarming video shared by Inside the NFL, the athlete remained calm as a woman said to him: “Your wife’s giving birth right now.”
Jefferson said “oh my gosh,” to the news before the clip showed his son and daughter asking him why they have to leave the celebrations early. Another video from backstage also showed him running to leave the stadium as quickly as possible.
Samaria – who was hauled out on a stretcher during the game – safely delivered a baby boy named Champ Curtis after the game.
