NFL Star Bawls Like a Baby Girl While Talking About His Brand New Baby Girl
Football players are big and strong and…cry babies?
The key word there is “babies.” Indianapolis Colts wide receiver T.Y. Hilton broke down while giving a postgame interview following his team’s 23-3 dismantling of the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Why so emotional? Hilton’s wife gave birth to their daughter, Eugenia, just hours before game time, leading to speculation that he may not play. Well, play he did and play he did well, catching four passes for 122 yards and a touchdown, which he celebrated by cradling the ball like a baby.

We see you there, wiping that tear from you eye. It’s okay. Having a kid is one of those situations where it’s completely acceptable for men to cry, up there with the return of the McRib and turning on the TV just as ‘Die Hard’ is about to start.
