#Titans' Byard on delivering own son: Wife having bad contractions at night. He got car ready, but wife couldn't make it. She was on knees having contractions. Hospital told KB to get her in tub. Head already poking out. Wife started pushing, about 15 mins later, KB makes catch..
Byard first told the story on The Midday 180, saying, "I literally didn't even have time to panic."
It's the second straight summer there was a new addition to the Byard family after his wife gave birth to a daughter last August. Eliana Rose Byard arrived nearly a month early, and Byard was back at practice a few hours later.
His son, Kevin Leon Byard IV, provided another tough challenge, but the Byard parents were up to the task.
