As per Huffington Post the all star wide receiver is having a hell of a month. On Thursday, February 17 he and his girlfriend had their first child together. The couple shared the good news on 2.22.22 via a very emotional and enthusiastic Instagram post on OBJ’s account. “Man man man. Where do I even begin? This is as real as it gets. This last week has been one that I truly could never forget. I had never been more prepared and focused for a game in my life, I was ready to go nuclear and perform at the highest level that I ever had in my career. I knew it and I felt it in my soul, I was in my biggggest bag n nothin was goin to stop me.” he wrote.
The Baton Rouge, Louisiana native went on to confirm that his new baby is the highlight of his life. “2-17-22, 0605. THE biggest blessing I’ve ever had in my life arrived here on earth! The words, I can’t even put together for the overwhelming emotions that ran thru me … a moment I will never forget and cherish forever. Zydn was born n at that moment I knew my life changed for the better.” Beck also put heavy respect on Wood for her courage during the delivery. “Lauren Wood, u changed my life forever and delivered the most beautiful gift of all… EFFORTLESSLY! Ur strength throughout this gives me the courage to keep goin because i now kno with u by my side and holding it down for me, I can get thru anything. I love u so much. And so the journey continues; 2-22-22; the stars are all aligned; surgery was a success. Like I’ve said all along “IT WAS WRITTEN.”
