It’s Father’s Day, which means right now is the perfect time to celebrate everything that father’s do. For instance, once you become a father, sometimes you have to answer questions about human reproduction from your young son because he wants to know how he was born.
That’s exactly what Eagles wide receiver Torrey Smith had to do recently, and the best part is that he documented the entire conversation that took place between him and his 3-year-old son, T.J.
While sitting in his car seat recently, young T.J. clearly began having an existential crisis about where he came from, so he had to ask dad, “Where did ya’ll get me from?”
Smith then quickly responded with a simple explanation, “Your mom had you.”
Conversation over, right?
Apparently, Smith’s answer wasn’t enough to convince T.J. of anything, so the 3-year-old repeated his question, “Where did ya’ll get me from?”
At that point, Smith explains that T.J. came from inside of his mom’s belly. As you can imagine, T.J. didn’t exactly seem to grasp the concept of coming out of his mom’s belly.
When young T.J. finds out that he was actually pulled out of his mom’s belly by doctors, you can almost hear the shock in his voice.
“Pull me out? I don’t want that to happen,” T.J. exclaims.
Of course, that’s when Smith explains to T.J. that it already happened and there’s nothing he can do about it. After that, T.J. now knows more about childbirth than any other 3-year-old alive.
Anyway, dozens of NFL players, including Smith, celebrated Father’s Day on Sunday by sharing pictures on social media. Here’s Smith and his children.
Smith wasn’t the only Eagles player to share a Father’s Day photo. Malcolm Jenkins also shared a picture on Twitter.
Tom Brady celebrated Father’s Day with his oldest son in China.
The Ravens celebrated Father’s Day by tweeting out a picture of Joe Flacco and his kids.
J.J. Watt also shared a Father’s Day picture.
Chris Long took his young son out for a hike to celebrate Father’s Day.
Saints running back Mark Ingram seemed to have a nice Father’s Day.
DeSean Jackson also shared a picture.
Finally, here’s a round up of NFL dads hilariously interacting with their kids.
Oh, and since I also have an NFL dad, I might as well throw in a “Happy Father’s Day” to him.
Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there.
