Deion Sanders is still processing the news that he is about to become a grandfather for the first time,.

In an interview with PEOPLE, the former NFL and MLB player said, “I haven’t digested that whole thing yet.”


Last month, Sanders eldest child, 31-year-old daughter Deiondra, announced on Instagram that she’s expecting her first child with her boyfriend, Jacquees.

“I’m proud of my baby that she’s at least waited until her thirties to give me this gift of life,” he continued. “I’m happy about that, but I want to make sure she’s straight emotionally and psychologically as well.”

In her anoouncement, Deiondra shared that her pregnancy was “not planned nor expected”.

“I’m not having my baby to keep a man. I am having my baby for all the times I was told I wouldn’t be able to,” she wrote.

She added, “I’m having my baby for the four myomectomy surgeries I have had. I am having my baby for all the years I stayed on birth control even though it gave me breast tumors. I’m having my baby for all the doctors that told me I wouldn’t make it out of the first trimester.”

In response to his daughter’s post, Sanders left an encouraging message, saying, “PREACH BABY PREACH, and u having this baby to make me a darn GRANDDADDY even though I’m YOUNG! I Love u baby and I’m glad u said u ain’t having a baby to keep a man. You’ve always had a MAN in your life that u call DADDY & ain’t gon ever ever let u DOWN especially when I’m UP.”

Deion Sanders shares Deiondra and son Deion Jr., 30, with his first wife, Carolyn Chambers. He also has three children- sons Shilo, 24, and Shedeur, 22, and daughter Shelomi, 20- with his second wife, Pilar Biggers-Sanders.
