Jim Harbaugh’s seventh child just couldn’t wait.
According to the Michigan coach, he and wife, Sarah, welcomed baby John into the world a bit earlier than expected:
Arriving early, weighing in at 4 lb 13 oz, with an 18 in wing span, our newest Wolverine teammate, John Harbaugh. Precious… God is good…

That came a week after Harbaugh and his wife were at the White House for an event. According to Harbaugh, the baby was supposed to arrive on Feb. 6.
He tweeted this out a week ago:

The newest Harbaugh will not have the same birthday as Bob Marley, Ronald Reagan and Babe Ruth. Baby John won’t have the same birthday as National Signing Day on Feb. 1, either.
Harbaugh has plenty to be thankful for. In addition to good health and happiness, avoiding any more Signing Day craziness is an additional blessing.
