ESPN personality and anti-bro-site crusader Samantha Ponder shared this charming image of herself, her new baby Bowden and Bowden’s daddy, Vikings third-string quarterback Christian Ponder.
Fatherhood must agree with Christian, who looks positively giddy. Almost drunk with joy.
Sadly, Christian will have to be away from Sam and the new baby for awhile as he spends time at Vikings camp in Mankato running the third team.
I’m sure Christian won’t miss be woken up in the middle of the night by loud, sharp, piercing noises. Oh wait, he still is! Fire alarm!
Christian talked recently about the new challenge of fatherhood and all the feely feelings it was making him feel (via ESPN.com):
“It’s crazy to take such a responsibility — you have someone that’s so dependent on you,” Ponder said. “You’ve got to take care of her and your family. It’s an eye-opening experience, it’s fun and it’s scary at the same time.”
If Ponder is as good at fatherhood as he is at being a quarterback…QUICK, SOMEONE SAVE BOWDEN BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE!!!
