McVay said Wednesday that his wife, Veronika, gave birth to a baby boy Tuesday. The couple named their son Jordan John McVay.
“He’s here, he’s healthy, he’s feeling good,” McVay said during a news conference before practice for Sunday's game at Dallas. “And what a blessing it is.”
Shortly before, the team posted on social media: “LA Rams transactions: Delivered Jordan John McVay.”
McVay said the birth was a “special moment” and complimented his wife on her strength throughout the pregnancy.
Had he gotten any sleep?
“It’s a good adrenaline but at some point it’s going to hit me,” he said, ‘’and I’d like to think I can push through. But I don’t have the stamina I used to.”
“His legacy lives on,” McVay said, “and I know he’s looking down smiling.”
