Ashley said, “Right now we’re enjoying the sleepiest, calmest baby we’ve ever met. Dawson did not get his chill from his parents. He did get his feet from me, his chin from Jared, one of his names from a Leo character, and another one of his names from, well, see Jared’s IG caption. We love him so much and are feeling so blessed!!”

Moving on over to Jared’s Instagram, fans will see that he shared a precious photo of himself holding Dawson.

Luckily, Brady didn’t announce his retirement officially until February 1. However, Ashley did finally agree to let Jared honor his hero in their son’s name.

Their plans for the time being

Ashley also revealed that she wanted to give birth at the hospital her father works at. So, she went home to Virginia to stay with her parents. Jared was commuting back and forth so he could continue to work at their new coffee shop. Luckily, he was there a few days before Dawson made his debut.

Now, Ashley and Dawson will continue to stay with her parents for a while since the baby will have doctor’s appointments. Jared will continue to commute back and forth.

Their son is absolutely adorable. Congrats to Ashley and Jared!
