Judon, wife wel­come 2nd child

Baltimore Sun Sunday - - NFL - By Jonas Shaf­fer

Ravens out­side line­backer Matthew Judon and his wife, BreighAnn, had to wait a lit­tle longer than ex­pected, but the cou­ple on Fri­day wel­comed a se­cond child to their grow­ing fam­ily.

Leonidas Joshua Judon was born early Fri­day morn­ing, ac­cord­ing to Matthew’s In­sta­gram story; BreighAnn’s in­duc­tion had been sched­uled for Thurs­day.

“My heart is full of joy,” Matthew, a Pro Bowl se­lec­tion and pend­ing free agent, wrote in an In­sta­gram post. “This has to be the most ex­cit­ing 48 hours of my life. This is a new chap­ter of my life and new level of my fa­ther­hood, the un­known that I’m headed to­wards I’m ready for. So many of you guys reached out and I thank y’all for it. Means the world to me and my fam­ily. God has blessed my fam­ily in ways I can’t put into words. THANK YOU FROM THE BOT­TOM OF MY HEART.”

Aniyah Judon, the cou­ple’s young daugh­ter, was born in June 2015. In Fe­bru­ary, BreighAnn learned that she had mis­car­ried. Even af­ter BreighAnn be­came preg­nant with the cou­ple’s first son sev­eral months later, she and Matthew strug­gled with their loss. They said they found com­fort in shar­ing their story with others who’d en­dured sim­i­lar grief.

“I think just not feel­ing alone in some­thing, know­ing that you’re not the only per­son go­ing through some­thing, is very com­fort­ing,” BreighAnn told The Bal­ti­more Sun last week.
