Luck must have been on the Los Angeles Rams‘ side throughout the postseason.
They barely defeated the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and a dropped interception nearly ended their season during the NFC Championship Game.
But destiny is on their side as they won Super Bowl LVI against the Cincinnati Bengals.
While all Rams players must be on cloud nine after winning the title, wide receiver Van Jefferson‘s luck was just getting started.
The moment @VanJefferson12 found out his wife was in labor ❤️

The video above showed the moment he knew that his wife and high school sweetheart, Samaria, was giving birth.
A representative from the team said, “Van, your wife’s giving birth right now.”
Jefferson was surprised about the update and he knelt down to inform his daughter that “Mommy’s finna have a baby.”
Moments later, Jefferson was in street clothes and rushing out of SoFi stadium.
Hours later, he was at the hospital carrying his newly-born child.
Double Win For Jefferson
Jefferson only had four receptions against the Bengals in Super Bowl LVI.
But there’s no question that his biggest catch that night was wrapping his child in his arms.
Yes, he’s now a Super Bowl champion and no one can take that achievement away from him.
But he’s equally as proud of becoming a father again.
It’s also good timing because he will get to spend as much time as possible with his new child before training camp starts.
Luckily for him as well, he’s going nowhere because he has two years left on his rookie deal.
Odell Beckham Jr.’s ACL injury means that the Rams need him when they defend their title next season.
