CLEVELAND, OH (WCMH) — The Browns thrilling comeback over the Jets to get their first win in nearly two years will be just a footnote in running back Carlos Hyde’s memory of the night.

As soon as the game was over, he rushed to the hospital where hours later he became a father.

“8 pounds 11 ounces,” Hyde tweeted this morning to announce the birth of his son, Carlos Jr.

Hyde was actually late to the team’s warmups because his wife’s doctor had already induced labor. He rushed to the stadium where the Ohio native finished with 23 carries for 98 yards.

His first touchdown celebration was a perfect celebration of things to come as he cradled the ball like a baby:

Hyde then rushed back to the hospital as soon as the Browns had defeated the Jets 21-17, skipping the on field celebrations to go be by his wife’s side to celebrate the birth of their son.

We assume Carlos Jr. is already a big Ohio State Buckeyes fan. After all, his dad scored 41 touchdowns for the Bucks during his college career.
