Congratulations to NFL player A.J. Green and wife Miranda Brooke on the arrival of their bundle of joy. The celebrity couple welcomed their son, Easton Ace Green, on Thursday.
“My sweet boy is here,” A.J. shared with Instagram fans. More than 23,000 followers liked Green’s announcement and hundreds gave their congratulations to the star athlete. “Congratulations on a handsome little man and love the name,” said one fan. “Hope you show off for him this weekend,” another supporter wrote.
Many feared that A.J. would not be able to play in the Cincinnati Bengals game against the Denver Broncos because of his wife’s expected due date, which was September 30, 2016. Little Easton, however, surprised everyone by making an early arrival on Wednesday.
A.J. shared his excitement with media one day after his son’s birth. “Just to see him come out and he’s crying, and when you hold him, he looks so innocent,” the new father gushed. “You see this guy, and you’re going to have to raise him, that’s yours till death do y’all part.”
Easton is Miranda and A.J. Green’s first child. The couple wed last year.
