Looks like Phil Rivers can now Quarterback an entire offense of children.
Philip Rivers, former NFL quarterback, is preparing to welcome his 10th child.
The 41-year-old athlete shared with AL.com that he and his wife, Tiffany, are expecting a baby boy in the next few months.
Currently at a 7-on-7 event in Daphne, Ala, Rivers expressed excitement.
“We’ve had one pretty much every two years and now this is the longest gap,” Rivers said. “We are all fired up. Everyone was pulling for a boy. Even our girls wanted a boy.”

The couple already has nine children, ranging in ages from 4 to 21.
Prior to the arrival of their new addition, the Rivers family consists of seven girls and two boys, with one of their sons taking on the starting quarterback position at St. Michael Catholic, where Rivers coaches.
After a 17-year career in the NFL, Rivers retired from professional football in 2021. When discussing the upcoming baby, Rivers mentioned that they have not yet decided on a name, but have received several suggestions.
“We are still kind of figuring that out,” he said. “We have plenty of opinions. That is what we’ve got right now.”
He humorously added that while his parents were part of large families, with nine siblings each, they have taken it a step further by going for double-digits.
Rivers’ accomplishments on the field include throwing for 63,440 yards and 421 touchdowns, both of which rank sixth on the NFL all-time lists.
