Eagles center Jason Kelce’s wife, Kylie, will be 38 weeks pregnant on the day of the Super Bowl—so she’s bringing two OB-GYNs just in case
For Jason Kelce, the star center for the Philadelphia Eagles, the Super Bowl is going to be a family affair. During a recent episode of the podcast he shares with his brother, New Heights with Jason and Travis Kelce, Jason laughed as they described the upcoming “Kelce Bowl,” since he plays for the Eagles, and Travis plays for the Kansas City Chiefs. The two teams are set to square off on Feb. 12.
“Are mom and dad sitting on your sideline? Are they sitting on my sideline?” Jason joked.

Travis replied, “We do have to figure that out because we each get a certain amount of tickets, and I feel like you’re going to have more of a family-oriented thing.”
That’s certainly true—Jason went on to explain that he’s bringing Kylie and her parents, plus their two daughters, 3-year-old Wyatt and 22-month-old Elliotte Ray. But because the couple is currently expecting their third baby, they’ll have a couple of important, special guests in their cheering section.
As Kylie confirmed to PEOPLE magazine, she’ll be bringing, not one but both of her OB-GYNS to the game. “They’re both my OBs on a regular basis, but I didn’t necessarily want one to be by themselves. All hands on deck.”
She went on to say that the discussion over a potential Eagles’ Super Bowl appearance began back in the fall when the team was in the middle of an eight-game winning streak. “They were undefeated then, and we just had a moment of, ‘Hypothetically speaking, the due date lines up very well with a Super Bowl date. If we happen to need to discuss that, would someone be open to coming with me?’ ” Kylie said.
“And of course, they were very understanding of the situation and said, ‘Of course, hypothetically speaking’ that someone would be able to accompany us.” (Who would turn that down, after all?)
The news originally broke when her husband announced their plans during that same podcast episode mentioned above.
“Kylie’s bringing her OB because she’s going to be 38 weeks pregnant at the game,” Jason said.
Travis about summed it up when he replied, “Dude. Dude!”
But hey, as this soon-to-be dad of three already knows, sometimes you just gotta do what you gotta do.
“That could be a super Kelce Bowl. If she has a baby in the stadium, it’s officially scripted,” Jason joked
The Kelce family is clearly ready. Recently, Jason shared a hilarious video of Wyatt singing the “Fly Eagles, Fly” fight song from her crib.
“Apparently Wyatt is pretty pumped about the Eagles win last night too,” he wrote in the caption. “Woke up to her singing the entire fight song this morning in her crib.”
