Danielle’s Instagram Story: ‘Telling Jett Super Bowl Secrets’
On Sunday morning, Danielle posted a series of photos to her Instagram story, showing Jett’s journey so far during Super Bowl weekend. In one photo, Burkhead was seen talking to his baby boy, captioning it, “Telling Jett Super Bowl Secrets.”
Here are some of the other photos Danielle posted to Instagram in the hours leading up to her husband’s big game:
Burkhead made headlines in November when reporters found out that he was late for practice because Danielle, his wife of five years, was expected to give birth any moment.
On November 22, Danielle broke the news of Jett’s safe birth on Instagram, writing, “We welcomed our sweet Jett Michael Burkhead into the world on Saturday, 11/17, weighing 8lbs 13 oz. We are overflowing love and joy for this amazing blessing. Thankful to the Lord for a happy and healthy son and the millions of blessings he’s given. Happy thanksgiving!”
A month later, Danielle celebrated the one-month-anniversary of her only son, writing on Instagram, “Jett was 1 month old last week! He loves his milk, baths, mom and dad, looking at lights, and tummy time! Hates not having milk, taking away the paci. Sister Sadie has come a long way and likes to wash his hair and check on him when he cries ?”
According to their wedding registry, Rex and Danielle were married on February 22, 2014. Danielle will often give shoutouts to her husband on Instagram, commending his behavior as a father and a husband. On February 22, 2018, Danielle commemorated their anniversary with a sweet post: “4 years married. 11 years together. Thankful is an understatement. ❤️”
Danielle has also shared her faith with her 2,000 followers, posting one Instagram in 2017 that read,
“Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”
