Rams coach Sean McVay, wife Veronika announce birth of son

The Los Angeles Rams made quite the transaction announcement via social media Wednesday afternoon.

Rams head coach Sean McVay and his wife, Veronika, welcomed their son, Jordan John McVay, on Tuesday.

“Mom and baby are doing good, and ready to get back at it. She gets to take care of all the fun stuff right now,” Sean said, via the OC Register’s Adam Grosbard. “What a blessing, what a cool thing.”

Jordan is the McVay’s first child, and they have been planning — or, trying as best as they possibly could — to navigate Veronika’s pregnancy during the season. Sean said last week that, “unless something goes totally unforeseen,” he wasn’t going to miss a game.

“My son knows better than to come during the game,” Sean joked last week, via ESPN.

Jordan’s already off to a great start.

Sean said that Jordan’s due date was Oct. 31, which was the same date that his grandfather, John, died last year.

“If you don’t believe in a higher power, there are some things that happen in this world that make you reconsider,” McVay said, via the OC Register’s Adam Grosbard.

McVay, 37, is in his seventh season with the Rams this fall in his first head coaching job in the league. He led the Rams to a Super Bowl win during the 2021 campaign, and holds a 63-42 overall record.

The Rams are 3-4 this season, and are fresh off a 24-17 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers last week. McVay and the Rams will take on the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday in Arlington, Texas.

Hopefully by then, McVay will have found a way to get some sleep — something he hasn’t been able to do yet as a father.

“At some point it’s going to hit me. I like to think that I can push through, but I don’t have the stamina that I used to,” McVay said.
