Arriving earlier than expected, Jim Harbaugh and his wife Sarah’s newest son John Harbaugh was born yesterday at Mott’s Children’s Hospital. According to Harbaugh’s Twitter, John weighs 4 pounds and 13 ounces with an 18 inch wingspan.
On Twitter, Harbaugh called John “our newest Wolverine.”
On January 6th, Harbaugh tweeted while at the White House with Sarah that the baby was expected to arrive on February 6th. Despite this former expecting date, John had other plans.
The Harbaughs announced the pregnancy on June 20th. This is the couple’s fourth child but is Harbaugh’s seventh. One of his sons, Jay, is a tight ends and special teams coach for the Wolverines and another son, James, is a current student at the University.
“There's nothing I'd rather be defined than as a dad. People define us men in a lot of ways: doctor, lawyer, dentist, construction worker, teacher, coach. But being called a dad is the defining moment,” Harbaugh said in a Free Press interview.
This new addition to the Wolverines could not have come at a better time, replacing safety Jabrill Peppers who declared for the NFL draft on Tuesday.
