Rams’ Sean McVay has no plans to miss Steelers games despite looming birth of firstborn: ‘My son knows better’

Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay isn’t missing game day for anything – including the birth of his first child. 

McVay, who is expecting a baby boy with his wife Veronika Khomyn “any day now,” spoke to reporters on Wednesday in the lead up to Sunday’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers and clarified that he has no intention of missing the matchup.

“My wife is doing great. I think there was a lot made about me missing a game. I’m not going to miss a game. My son knows better than to come during a game, all right,” McVay said, drawing a laugh from the room full of reporters.  

While he might not need football advice, he and quarterback Matthew Stafford have been discussing fatherhood. 

“Not too much. We do talk about it some,” Stafford told reporters on Wednesday.

“Obviously, I’m happy for him and Veronika, just such a cool experience. Obviously just hoping and praying everything goes as it should and scheduled, and everybody comes out great, but just excited for him. I know how he is around my kids when he’s around my kids, and he’s got nothing to worry about. He is just going to trust himself, trust his instincts, and he’ll be just fine.”
