Calais Campbell and wife Rocio seem to have brought another football player into the family
American footballer Calais Malik Campbell was the happiest man on Earth when he became father to a little Campbell in May 2020.
His happiness sees no bound as it seems like the almost one-year-old toddler has taken to baseball like a duck to water.
Junior Campbell Plays Ball
The sportsman and his gorgeous wife, Rocio Campbell, were blessed with a baby boy on May 5, 2020, in their San Marco Condominium.
The couple made sure not to know the gender of the baby until birth. In an interview with Jackson Ville, Rocio said that she didn’t see the baby right away but saw that Campbell was thrilled and excited.
Afterward, the doctors put the baby in her chest, and then they knew it was a baby boy.
I didn’t see the baby right away, but I could see from Calais’ smile and tone he was very excited, They put the baby on my chest, and he had to peek under the blanket to look [to determine the gender]. He got excited when he saw it was a boy.
Campbell junior, named Dakari Calais Campbell, doubled his father's joy when the new dad found out they had a son.
Witnessing the birth, the coming of life, was incredible. Knowing it was a boy was the cherry on top. I was ecstatic.
As the NFL player entered fatherhood, it seems like he wants to give his son some football lessons as soon as possible!
In one of his recent Instagram posts shared on February 9, 2021, the adorable Dakari was seen with a mini-football in his hand. The photo was captioned, "I think we might have a QB on our hands!!! Holding the ball like a natural!"
Even his fans were convinced with his caption and filled the comment section with all their love and support. While one comment read, ‘’First-round pick in the 2042 draft!", another user commented, “Born player! Just perfect hold.”
Campbell Married His Long Time Girlfriend
Calais dated Rocio for a long time before they took their relationship to the next level. The couple exchanged vows on July 8, 2017, in Princeville Resort and had their wedding on a beach.
Rocio took to her Instagram to post a wedding picture in September 2017 to share the wonderful news. While the athlete was seen wearing a dark grey suit, his better half looked beautiful in a white wedding gown and veil with a beach backdrop. She captioned it, “Once upon a time, I met the love of my life. And now, I’m living a fairytale.”
Rocio is an engineer by profession; however, after getting married, she also became involved with The Charles Richard Campbell Foundation, a charity founded by her husband.
The foundation’s primary purpose is to educate and train “critical life skills” to the young generation, including monetary and vocational training.
