Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford, wife Kelly reveal gender of fourth child
Matthew Stafford has another daughter.
The Detroit Lions quarterback's wife, Kelly Stafford, revealed their new child is a girl, according to a Friday post on Instagram. Their fourth daughter is named Tyler Hall Stafford.
She was born at 9:11 a.m. June 26 in the NICU at St. Joseph Mercy Oakland. Kelly said Tyler is "another sweet little girl to complete our girl squad."
They were with their new daughter for 10 hours before doctors decided to watch her in the NICU because "although she was full term, her lungs needed some help."
She went home with her parents Friday.
Matthew and Kelly have three other daughters: 3-year-old twins Chandler and Sawyer and 1-year-old Hunter. Kelly made her pregnancy announcement in March.
Stafford is entering his 12th season in the NFL, all with the Lions. In his career, he has completed 62.5% of his passes for 41,025 yards and 256 interceptions against 134 interceptions. Last season, the Lions finished 3-12-1; Stafford missed the last eight games because of a back injury.
The Lions are expected to open the preseason Aug. 20 against the New York Jets at Ford Field after the NFL decided to eliminate the first and fourth weeks of the preseason.
