Good morning, 12s.

Here's a look at what's "out there" for today - Thursday, Feb. 5 - about your Seattle Seahawks:

Sherman Welcomes Baby Boy

Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman welcomed his first child into the world on Thursday morning when his girlfriend Ashley Moss gave birth to their son, Rayden.

The baby comes on Feb. 5, or 2/5, or better yet, Sherman's jersey number - No. 25.

To Sherman's disbelief, his son's delivery was a topic of national discussion prior to Super Bowl XLIX last week. The All-Pro corner was asked what he would do if his girlfriend Ashley were to go into labor on Super Bowl Sunday.

"...we'll cross that bridge when we get to it, but I think he will be a disciplined young man and stay in there a while longer," he said.

Rayden listened to his dad's direction, but may have disappointed Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll, who joked last week that he couldn't wait to see "little Petey" be born.

Today's "Tweet(s) of the Day" come from Sherman's Seahawks teammates, who congratulate him on the birth of his newborn son.
