Richard Sherman about to become a dad

Fatherhood awaits Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman.

His girlfriend is due to give birth to a son within the next week.

Should she got into labor before Sunday, she's in Arizona and would give birth at a local hospital.

What if the baby arrives during the game?

"We'll cross that bridge when we get there," Sherman said. "We're not thinking about the possibility."

Sherman is excited about being a dad.

"It's someone that actually depends on you for everyday living," Sherman said. "Everything they do is dependent on you and how you provide and how successful you are. As a parent, you want to set a great example for them, so I guess, to a degree, a lot of things are riding on it."
