Former Mountaineer Pat McAfee, Wife Samantha Welcome Baby Girl



Pat and Samantha McAfee

There’s a new member of the McAfee family! Pat and his wife Samantha announced they welcomed a baby girl on Thursday.

The former West Virginia kicker, NFL All-Pro punter and current media mogul didn’t unveil the name of his little girl, but did write a brief message to his fans as part of a post with an image of mom and dad holding their newborn’s small hand.

“Today’s a day that @MrsMcAfeeShow and I have been dreaming of.. I can’t wait to see where this foot gets to go beautiful girl. WE LOVE YOU. Baby and Momma are both healthy. Momma and I are floating with joy. This is amazing. Thanks for all of the good vibes,” said McAfee.

In typical McAfee fashion, he later appeared on his own show to discuss the eventual big day and the arrival of his daughter.

The birth of his daughter comes after a long and difficulty IVF journey, which was something both Pat and Samantha detailed while breaking the news they were expecting six months ago.

“After about 150 shots, a surgery, a transfer, countless blood tests, waiting on embryos, genetic testing, hoping for a big fat positive on a pee stick. So much support from family & close friends. We are beyond happy & blessed to announce our double rainbow baby!, Samantha wrote at the time.

Pat offered his own letter, mostly filled with praise of his wife. “From the emergency surgeries, both of which I was told that I might lose my wife (those were wild days) all the way thru this entire IVF process… you’ve been an absolute badass, Sam,” said Pat. “We appreciate the hell out of all of the support from our friends and family thru this all.”

Fans will now have to wait to learn just how long they could be without McAfee hosting his daily YouTube show and involved in his many other projects. McAfee has hinted about stepping away for a bit upon the birth of his daughter. He already addressed rumors about how often he will be seen on WWE programming going forward back in March.

But does appear tough for McAfee to totally leave the spotlight behind, even briefly. He made a surprise appearance to beat The Miz at WrestleMania last month.
