Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder and his wife, ESPN reporter Samantha Ponder, accomplished a great feat in this social media-driven world. They kept the pregnancy and birth of their daughter a secret.
The Ponders have now released a photo on Instagram and Twitter of baby girl Bowden Sainte-Claire who was born earlier this month. The first name is in honor of retired Florida State coach Bobby Bowden who coached Christian Ponder.
Samantha Ponder said in her Instagram post, "Thanks to all the close friends and family who helped us enjoy pregnancy/the first month of her life privately. We can never repay you. Now, say hello to my new traveling buddy. She'll see you all this fall."
