Congratulations in order as former Seahawks WR Golden Tate becomes a father

NFL: Detroit Lions at Tampa Bay Buccaneers Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

In the past year Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson and then Seahawks wide receiver Jermaine Kearse became fathers for the first time, and now it has become apparent that former Seattle and current Detroit Lions receiver Golden Tate did not want to miss out on the fun of being a dad.

Late Wednesday night Tate sent out the following tweet:

Tate married his longtime girlfriend Elise Pollard last spring, and assuming little Londyn was born on the same day Tate sent out the tweet, Tate might have to make tough decisions in the future regarding whether to play in a playoff game or to attend a birthday party. Luckily for Tate, however, the Lions have not won a playoff game since the Wild Card round of the 1991 playoffs, with the team’s last postseason victory having taken place so long ago that it took came just 11 days after the dissolution of the Soviet Union.

In any case, congratulations to Tate as he embarks on the wonderful journey of fatherhood, and now gets to join former teammates Kearse, Wilson and others in enjoying daddy-daughter time.

So, congratulations again to Tate and Pollard on the arrival of the little one, and best wishes to the entire family as they start down a new path in their lives.
