Kirk and Julie Cousins Welcome Newborn Cooper

Kirk and his wife Julie welcomed their first child into the world on Friday, Sept. 29. The Cousins’ first child was a son named Cooper Cousins.

Cooper’s arrival came 11 days past Julie’s Sept. 18 due date and weighed 9 lbs., 6 oz. at birth.

“I’m sure many of you who are dads and moms know that it’s a special experience,” Cousins, 29, told ESPN Saturday. “I texted the coaches afterwards and said, ‘That was a top experience of my life so far.’ So I guess that says it all.”

The couple announced in March that they were expecting their first child. The spring announcement came with a social media post of their dog, Bentley, sporting a sign around his neck that stated, “MOM & DAD ARE GETTING ME A HUMAN!”

“It’s been a great experience because Julie’s been so positive throughout it,” Cousins told ESPN. “She’s been so disciplined. It’s been a joy throughout the months and the actual delivery and labor was no different.

“She was a joy throughout it, just a reminder that I married up. That was a life goal of mine to marry up and I did that and I think this whole process the last nine months affirmed that.”
