Ex-NFL player Jason Brown delivers his new baby boy on a farm

Published Add your comment

Former St Louis Rams center Jason Brown made big news a few months back for his decision to quit the NFL and buy a farm. Rather than playing football, Brown now grows crops to feed the starving. Nice guy.

But it gets weirder. On that very farm, Brown once again caught national attention on Wednesday when it was revealed that he helped deliver his own newborn baby.

Brown obviously lives these days out in the sticks and when his wife went into labour there wasn't enough time for assistance to arrive before Brown's wife had to deliver.

Bizarre experience 

Brown was known as a ferocious and committed competitor on the field of play during his time in St Louis with the Rams, and he showed his wife plenty of commitment this week too when he stepped up to deliver his baby himself before assistance could arrive.

“It was an incredible experience,” Brown told the The News Observer. “It was unbelievable.”

Massive shock 

USA Today reported that the couple successfully delivered an 8-pound 9-ounce baby boy named Lunsford Bernard III, which is a name given in honor of Jason Brown's older brother who died in action while in Afghanistan.

Brown was a member of the Rams roster and the Ravens during his seven-year stint in the NFL. And the former center says he was definitely surprised he had to use his safe hands in one of the more bizarre experiences of his life.

“Delivering Tre was a surprise,” Brown said. “My wife and I were one praying couple.”

These days Brown lives on a 1,000 acre farm in North Carolina with his wife and now son. He is partnered with numerous charity organizations and distributes vegetables of all sorts across America.
