Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins won't be on baby-watch for very much longer.

WUSA9 Sports has confirmed the signal caller left right after practice Thursday afternoon, headed to the hospital because his wife, Julie is in labor.

Earlier this month, Cousins told Sports Director and Anchor Darren Haynes that he "just can't wait to hold him and play with him and raise him and hopefully be a great dad."

Cousins and Julie announced the pregnancy March 18 on her instagram account. On March 24 they revealed the sex of the baby in a unique way.

Cousins threw a football at a box which was supposed to let out pink or blue smoke. His slightly inaccurate pass hit enough of the box to allow the blue smoke to escape.
