Taysom Hill, wife Emily welcome their second baby boy

Taysom Hill, a jack-of-all-trades with the New Orleans Saints, and his wife Emily recently had their second child.

Taysom Hill has been absent from New Orleans Saints practise the previous two days with good reason.

Bryan Bienemy initially reported on Friday morning that his absence was due to being on baby watch with his wife Emily, and we've now fast-forwarded to Saturday, where the Hill family has grown by one.

His own Twitter account made the formal announcement."Words cannot express how much Emily and I love and appreciate each other right now." I am so proud of my wife, Emily, for all of the sacrifices she has made and continues to make, as well as how wonderfully she delivered.

There's obviously been an incredible amount of congratulatory comments for Taysom Hill today, but one that struck out came from former Saints and now Panthers quarterback Teddy Bridgewater

Hill proposed to Emily Nixon in late December 2013, and the couple married in 2014. In late April, he inked a two-year, $21 million contract extension with the Saints

He appears to be an important part of the team's plans this season. While his exact function is unknown at this time, it's always intriguing to see what he brings to the table and watch him grow.
