Former NFL player Philip Rivers says wife is expecting their 10th child

Philip Rivers, the former NFL player, has announced that he and his wife will be welcoming their tenth child in the upcoming autumn season. After a successful career spanning 17 seasons and securing eight Pro Bowl victories, the 41-year-old Rivers revealed his decision to retire from the National Football League in 2021.
In addition to his remarkable achievements with the Los Angeles Chargers and the Indianapolis Colts, Rivers also led a busy family life off the field.

Throughout his NFL tenure, he and his wife, Tiffany, became parents to a total of nine children. As reported by, their current family comprises seven daughters and two sons, ranging in age from four to 21. However, merely two years after his retirement, the quarterback joyfully shared the remarkable news that they are expecting their tenth child. In an interview with the aforementioned publication, Rivers expressed their excitement, stating, "We've had a child almost every two years, and now this is the longest interval. We are all ecstatic. Everyone was hoping for a boy, even our daughters."
Fortunately for the Rivers family, it has been announced that they will be welcoming another son into their midst next autumn.

Discussing this news, Philip Rivers mentioned that his own parents had a large number of siblings. It turns out that both of his parents hail from families with a total of nine children.

"We initially thought we would continue the tradition of having nine children in the third generation, but we ended up surpassing that and entering double-digits. I should clarify that it wasn't our decision; it was a choice made by a higher power," he remarked.

Despite already being aware of the gender of their tenth child, the coach at St. Michael Catholic High School has not yet settled on a name.

"We are still in the process of finalizing that," he conceded.

“We have plenty of opinions. That is what we've got right now.”
Elsewhere, the sports star stated that his entire family was, 'excited and ultimately just thankful', that another baby was on the way.

“I think what tells the story for us is the reaction of the other children, and how excited they are,” he continued. “They are fired up.”

Those familiar with Rivers’ career will know that the former football player announced his retirement from playing on January 20 2021.

In a statement shared by the Colts, he said: "Every year, January 20th is a special and emotional day.
“It is St. Sebastian's Feast day, the day I played in the AFC championship without an ACL, and now the day that after 17 seasons, I'm announcing my retirement from the National Football League.”

"Thank you, God, for allowing me to live out my childhood dream of playing quarterback in the NFL.

"I am grateful to the Chargers for 16 seasons and the Colts for the 17th season. Thank you to all my coaches that helped me grow as a player and person,” he added.

Rivers is now the head coach of St. Michael Catholic in Fairhope, Ala. His eldest son, Gunner, is set to be the starting quarterback this season.
