Ravens QB Joe Flacco on Raising a Family

Joe Flacco won the last Super Bowl as QB of the Baltimore Ravens, signed a 9-figure contract and just became a dad for the second time. But the birth of his son this past weekend was particularly memorable, CNN's Rachel Nichols reports.

As Flacco's wife Dana approached her due date with their second son, they'd agreed ahead of time that if she went into labor on a game day morning, he's stay with the team, play, and then rush to the hospital after.

They figured – hey, odds were, it wouldn't even come up, and if it did, it wouldn't draw a lot of attention. Well wouldn't you know it, Dana gave both to little Daniel Flacco this past Sunday, right when Flacco was on the field for the Raven's home opener.

Some folks balked, but Flacco told Nichols that he's got way too much making him happy right now to worry about that.
