Colin Kaepernick and Nessa are parents! Ahead of attending the MTV VMAs on Sunday, the 41-year-old radio and TV personality announced that she and the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback, 34, had welcomed their first child a few weeks ago.
“I thought long and hard about sharing our life changing news today. I decided to do so because today is the first day in a few weeks where I stepped out for work with a new life title – MOM!” Nessa wrote on Instagram alongside a black-and-white photo of the pair with their newborn. “Colin and I welcomed our amazing baby to the world a few weeks ago and we are over the moon with our growing family.”
Nessa revealed that she initially wasn’t planning on sharing the news publicly. She explained, “Recovering after delivery has been a journey (more on that later) and honestly I wasn’t going to share anything because this is sooooo personal to us and I realized I’m a complete mama bear! Colin is the most amazing dad and I’m soooo grateful that he is by our side for every moment of this journey.”
She continued: “I know sharing this allows me to connect with you in different ways that I never imagined. My conversations and life experiences have already changed. And my world has gotten that much bigger thanks to our sweet little baby who has shown me how to love in ways I never knew.”
Nessa and Kaepernick first met in 2015, and they began dating shortly after. Aside from a few red carpet appearances and photos on social media, the pair are pretty private when it comes to their romance.
