Cousins took off from practice on Thursday afternoon once he learned that his wife, Julie, had gone into labor.

WUSA9 Sports learned Saturday at practice that Cousins was back on the field because his wife delivered a baby boy. His name is Cooper. He weighs nine pounds and six ounces.

Earlier this month, Cousins told WUSA9 Sports that he "just can't wait to hold him and play with him and raise him and hopefully be a great dad."

Congratulations to the new parents!
