A happy and healthy partner, as well as a new baby welcomed to the world. Things seem to be going well for the QB, but what about the gridiron?
Though he’s still without a team and seemingly unable to play, the star QB was back in the news this week, but a very special reason in that he’s now a father.
Colin Kaepernick and Nessa Diab celebrate their first child’s birth
According to reports on Sunday, former San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick and longtime girlfriend Nessa Diab, announced the birth of their first child on social media. Indeed, Kaepernick’s partner Diab posted her thoughts on the momentous occasion online. “I thought long and hard about sharing our life changing news today. I decided to do so because today is the first day in a few weeks where I stepped out for work with a new life title - MOM!” Diab, who is an MTV host wrote.
“Colin and I welcomed our amazing baby to the world a few weeks ago and we are over the moon with our growing family. ...Colin is the most amazing dad and I’m soooo grateful that he is by our side for every moment of this journey.” Interestingly, Diab and Kaepernick, who reportedly started dating back in 2015, indicated that they welcomed their child “a few weeks ago,” however, they also promised that more details about their family’s new addition would be coming soon.
Where is Colin Kaepernick’s career right now?
As fans will likely know, Kaepernick is still a free agent, and hasn’t played a single game since he would infamously blacklisted by the NFL, following his refusal to kneel for the national anthem during the 2016 NFL regular season. Indeed, Kaepernick who was protesting the treatment of African Americans in society has since gone on to become a Nike ambassador, but is yet to be signed by any team in the league. Most recently he participated in an almost five-hour workout with the Las Vegas Raiders in May, but nothing concrete came out of that session.
What remains clear, is that the former San Francisco signal caller is in “great” shape, leaving the question, ‘will any NFL franchise take the chance of acquiring him for the coming season?’
