With a pair of rookies in his position group, quarterback Drew Stanton is often known as the ‘father’ of the quarterback trio.
That name took on its actual meaning late Saturday evening as his wife, Kristin, and him welcomed Asher Harrison Stanton into the world.
The new baby boy was born at 10:24 p.m. in Carmel and thanks to some last minute planning, Stanton was able to be there.
Stanton made the trip to Washington D.C. on Friday afternoon with his teammates but once he got word that Kristin was going into labor, plans were made to send the Colts quarterback back home.
“(Clyde Christensen and Chuck Pagano) were unbelievable,” Stanton said. “Throughout the whole process, coach Pagano and Clyde were texting me, throughout the entire day even when they landed knowing he was just born. It was an unbelievable day. A little chaotic for me to get home, but nonetheless it was indescribable.”
During the day on Saturday, Stanton and his wife spent the afternoon taking in the Colts preseason game from the hospital.
Having been in Washington D.C. just hours earlier, Stanton admitted it was a little unusual watching his teammates play from home.
“We watched the game from the hospital, which was kind of a unique situation, knowing everything that was going on and what we were doing and following that way.”
Colts team chaplain Eric Simpson spent some time with the Stanton family on Sunday and Drew is extremely thankful that his wife and the newest member of his family are both in good health.
“It’s a blessing. I had a lot of support and a lot of prayers going in our direction. My wife was healthy through the entire process so I’m happy for that, my son as well,” Stanton said.
“Now I’m here at work, focused on that and getting ready. I’m glad (Asher) came when he did because it would have been a much more difficult decision had we been in Chicago.”
