As Super Bowl Sunday approaches, Odell Beckham Jr. is on baby watch

Sunday could be a big day for Odell Beckham Jr., in more ways than one.

His girlfriend is due to give birth to his first child. It could happen today or tomorrow.

“I don’t need you to put that energy in the air about the Saturday night or the Sunday thing,” Beckham said Friday, via the New York Post. “I think God has a different plan. I don’t need it during the Super Bowl. I want to see my child being born, so I’m on watch.”

He didn’t say what he will do if the moment arrives. As always, it’s an intensely personal decision.

Here’s another factor for Beckham. In addition to the $2 million he has earned as a result of the team’s postseason success to date, he gets another $500,000 if the Rams lose and $1 million if they win. In either case, however, he must be on the active game-day roster to get the money.

  1. Please note that Odelphia Beckham has commitment issues – he is on his third NFL team and has yet to marry the woman with whom he procreated. I think that says all that needs to be said about the worth of Oldephia.

  2. Good luck to mother and child getting through healthy and congratulations Mr Beckham on becoming a dad he seems justifiably excited.

  3. Whats more important in life “$500k,$1mill added to to your pay roll”,or being there for the for the BIRTH OF YOUR CHILD ?

    Is a possible $500k,or a superbowl ring+$1 mill”that is easily earned for him” worth giving up the chance of a lifetime to be there when your child being born?
    That $500k-$1mill +A RING” would be gone before she/he’s EVEN OLD ENOUGH TO KNOW WHO HE EVEN IS.

    IMOP … money is nothing “IT HELPS BUT” .FAMILY IS EVERY THING.

    You know nothing about the guys relationship and just make these judgements with zero knowledge. I dated my wife for 7 years before we got married. I think it says more that it’s his 1st child. Not the usual case with NFL players.

    That said, my wife and I both agreed, as special as the birth of your first child is, you can have more. You may only ever get one chance to play in the Superbowl. Plus the bonus money. She would be like go get us paid babe!
