Gender reveals have been one of the biggest trends of the past few years as couples have come up with creative and fun ways to find out whether their child is a boy or a girl. And it’s extended to sports, too. Kirk Cousins threw a mini football at a target last March, and some Eagles fans recreated the “Philly Special” to find out they were having a girl in late July.
Falcons lineman Andy Levitre became one of the latest to join the movement Wednesday.

Levitre’s baby boy is due a day after the Super Bowl
With Levitre and his wife, Katie, holding signs that read “A Gatorade shower will let us see boy or girl what will it be?” the Falcons dumped blue Gatorade on Levitre’s head. He then celebrated accordingly.
Levitre, 32, is heading into his fourth year with the Falcons. He started his career with Buffalo, where he played four years, and then he played two more in Tennessee before heading to Atlanta. He’s started 45 games over the past three seasons for the Falcons.
If everything goes to plan, this Gatorade shower won’t be the only one in which Levitre will be taking part. The Falcons are once again a strong contender in the NFC and have qualified for back-to-back playoffs, including a trip to the Super Bowl two seasons ago.
The baby boy is due the day after Super Bowl LIII, according to Katie’s Instagram account. The couple announced they were expecting a child in late July, shortly before Levitre left for training camp.
Yes, it’s true! Another baby due during the busiest time of football! Someone (🙋♀️) forgot that 40 weeks is from the day of your last cycle NOT the day of conception 🤦🏼♀️. So, I thought we were in the clear to start trying for an OFF-SEASON baby. Not to mention after almost a year of trying to get pregnant with Lily, I certainly didn’t expect to get it right on the first try this time😵. But…..it is with a full heart ❤️and growing belly🤰we announce that we have a second little love on her/his way! The last 2 months have certainly not been easy. At times I’ve been too nauseous to even look at a computer/phone screen (great timing to launch a blog 😬!) but the worst of it seems to be over & I’m looking forward to a better second trimester! Excited to share this journey with y’all. Now to send Dad off to training camp YEAR 10! #riseup #footballbaby #babynumber2

If all goes to plan, the Levitre’s are hoping they’ll be plenty busy the first weekend of February, 2019.
