Colin Kaepernick and Nessa Diab are parents!

According to a post on Nessa’s Instagram page, the couple quietly welcomed their first child together a few weeks ago.

“Colin and I welcomed our amazing baby to the world a few weeks ago and we are over the moon with our growing family,” she wrote.

The new mom decided to share the baby news before working the red carpet at the 2022 MTV VMAs in an effort to get ahead of any speculation or questions about her voluptuous figure.

Nessa wrote, “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!”

She also went on to talk about her recovery after giving birth.

Recovering after delivery has been a journey (more on that later) and honestly I wasn’t going to share anything because this is sooooo personal to us and I realized I’m a complete mama bear! Colin is the most amazing dad and I’m soooo grateful that he is by our side for every moment of this journey.

I know sharing this allows me to connect with you in different ways that I never imagined. My conversations and life experiences have already changed. And my world has gotten that much bigger thanks to our sweet little baby who has shown me how to love in ways I never knew.

This is the first child for Colin Kaepernick and Nessa.

The former NFL star and activist and the radio and TV personality have been dating since 2015.

Congratulations to the beautiful couple on their new bundle of joy!
