Great News! Charles Tillman and wife Jackie are expecting their fourth child to arrive sooner rather than later. The Chicago ‘Bears’ player recently tweeted, “God, family, football. Baby is coming Monday. Don’t worry, I’ll be there Sunday.”
Tillman previously told his teammates that he probably wouldn’t be playing in Chicago’s game against Houston because he wanted to be by his wife’s side if she gave birth. “This game is important to me, but after what we went through with my middle child Tiana, to me football is second … It’ll always be second or third in my life. That was a great lesson learned, to teach me that family — when I’m done playing football — my family will always be there for me,” said Tillman.
Charles and Jackie struggled to get Tiana a transplant after she was born with an enlarged heart in 2008. The Tillman’s established the Cornerstone Foundation shortly after their daughter’s surgery and recovery.
