James Develin’s 2018 season just got a bit more special.
On his Instagram account Wednesday, Develin shared news that his wife was to be expecting their third child.
“Adding another member to this crew in a few short hours. The strength and selflessness I’ve seen in @jennydevelinthese past few years has been incredible. Can’t even begin to tell how proud and appreciative I am for all you’ve done for us. We absolutely adore you. NOW LETS GO HAVE THIS BABY!!”
As a result of the impending pregnancy, Develin missed practice on Wednesday to be with his family. It is the third time this season a Patriot has had to leave the team due to paternal matters, Rex Burkhead was late to practice in November for the birth of his son and Trey Flowers missed practice in December for the birth of his daughter.
Develin finished the 2018 season with a career highs in receptions (12) and rushing touchdowns (4).
Congratulations to James and Jenny!
