Winning the Superbowl, tearing your ACL, and having a baby all in the same week; some would say an impossible combination, but for Odell Beckham Jr. and girlfriend Lauren Wood, that's exactly what went down. The 29-year-old NFL superstar and 28-year-old model gave birth to their "biggest blessing" on February 17, just a few days after the Rams took home the W in the 56th annual Superbowl. Here's what we know about the newest parents on the block (or field).

Odell Beckham Jr. (OBJ) and girlfriend Lauren Wood (LoLo) started publically dating back in 2019, when the model/actress wished her man a happy 27th birthday, making the couple Instagram official. Moving forward, the couple announced LoLo's pregnancy via Instagram in a series of black and white photos showing off the model's bump! Model/Actress Lauren Wood is known for her appearances on the MTV improv comedy show, Wild'n'Out. A few days following the birth of their first child together, the couple announced the birth of beautiful baby boy Zydn on Wednesday, February 23.

Wide Reciever of the Los Angeles Rams, Odell Beckham Jr., took to his social media to share with his fans both the birth of their baby and his status post-surgery regarding his torn ACL. OBJ suffered from a knee injury in the second quarter of Superbowl LVI versus the Cincinnati Bengals (after he scored the first touchdown). Luckily, the surgery went well, and he'll be back out there in no time. The football star took to the gram to excitedly share all the happy news. "Zydn was born n at that moment I knew my life changed for the better. Lauren Wood, u changed my life forever and delivered the most beautiful gift of all… EFFORTLESSLY!" he wrote following a series of photos of the new family of three. Stars like Tyga commented on the post writing, "blessings on blessings 🙏🏾🙏🏾" and new mama Lolo commented, "Best dad 🥇" - and we're sure he will be.
