In addition to being one of the most underrated quarterbacks in history, Philip Rivers may also be one of the most underrated father’s in modern history, as he and his wife are the proud parents of nine (9!) children — an amount of kin almost unheard in today’s day and age.
Unfortunately for Rivers, though, while he’s become synonymous with underperforming teams, early season stumbles, late-season letdowns, and pitiful playoff performances on the field, he’s becoming a running joke about fatherhood off-the-field.
But while ole’ Philip may be in the latter stages of his football career, he shows no signs of slowing down in his fatherhood career, as he and his wife Tiffany Rivers welcomed their 9th child into the world.
Philip and Tiffany, who were high school sweethearts that got married in 2001 before Rivers got drafted into the NFL, gave birth to their first child, Halle, in 2002.
Since that first-born, Philip and Tiffany have given birth to eight more children: Caroline, Grace, Gunner, Sarah, Peter, Rebecca, Clare, and now Anna.
And because Twitter is Twitter, football fans from all corners of the country had something to say about Rivers having yet another kid and slowly reaching Antonio Cromartie levels of fatherhood.

Good for Philip Rivers, though. At this point, he’s essentially bridged the gap between parenting and philanthropy as fathering nine (9!!!) children is about the same as running a small orphanage.
