Super Bowl Player Bringing Very Pregnant Wife’s Doctor to This Weekend’s Big Game — Just in Case
“It could be a super Kelce bowl. If she has a baby in the stadium, it’s officially scripted.”
Brothers Travis and Jason Kelce are making history as the first siblings to play against each other in the Super Bowl. But that’s not the only history being made this Sunday. Jason Kelce’s wife, Kylie McDevitt, who is 38 weeks pregnant — just two weeks short of the average period of pregnancy — will be bringing her OB-GYN to the big game.
The Philadelphia Eagles center spoke about his wife’s unconventional Super Bowl LVII guest on the 25th episode of New Heights with Jason and Travis Kelce, a podcast he co-hosts with his brother Travis.
The brothers were discussing their family members that would be watching from the sidelines, including their parents, children, and in-laws, when Jason dropped a shocker into the conversation.
“Kylie’s bringing her OB-GYN because she’s going to be 38 weeks pregnant at the game,” he stated. “That could be a super Kelce bowl. If she has a baby in the stadium, it’s officially scripted.”
“We’re in the Matrix,” laughed Travis Kelce, tight end for the Kansas City Chiefs.
McDevitt and Jason Kelce already have two daughters together and are looking forward to welcoming the third “Kelce lady” this month.
The brothers chatted about having their family members at the 2023 Super Bowl and them having to split their support for the two brothers. “Are mom and dad sitting on your sideline or are they sitting on my sideline?” Jason joked.
“We do have to figure that out because we each get a certain amount of tickets, and I feel like you’re going to have more of a family-oriented thing,” Travis replied.
“I’m bringing Kylie’s parents, and I’m bringing the girls,” Jason shared, referring to his wife Kylie and daughters Wyatt, 3, and Elliotte Ray, 22 months.
Super Bowl Babies Two Seasons in a Row?
The couple isn’t taking any chances with the pregnancy. Kylie is bringing her obstetrician-gynecologist to the on the chance should she may go into labor.
Taking all necessary precautions is a logical plan after what happened at last year’s big game. In 2022, Samaria Jefferson, wife of Los Angeles Rams receiver Van Jefferson, made headlines when she went into labor while her husband played in the Super Bowl.
“I did not want to miss the game for anything,” she told PEOPLE Magazine. She remained at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California, until her contractions were two minutes apart, and was then taken to a local hospital in an ambulance.
“To have a baby on Super Bowl day…and win the Super Bowl too is a blessing,” Van said.
The Kansas City Chiefs head to Glendale, Arizona after defeating the Cincinnati Bengals, 23-20, in the AFC Championship game. They’ll face off against the Philadelphia Eagles, who beat on the San Francisco 49ers, 31-7, in the NFC Championship.
And if another Kelce family member wants to join the big game and make the day even more memorable, the family — and OB-GYN —will be ready.
