Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins missed practice Friday as his team prepares for a road game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
But he had a really great reason for playing hooky. As shared by the team’s official Twitter account, Cousins is currently awaiting the birth of his first child.

No Kirk Cousins presser today. His wife, Julie, is in labor. "It's go time!" he said. Leaving facility now. Best of luck to them.

The fact that Cousins did FaceTime into some team meetings shows he’s multi-tasking like a champ even during what must be a very emotional day. Our thoughts and prayers are with Cousins’ wife, Julie, as she delivers their child.
