Vikings Locker Room Going Through Baby Boom


EAGAN, Minn. – The Vikings family is expanding.

A number of Vikings teammates have welcomed new additions to their families within the past few months, including Henry Tyler Rudolph, who was born Monday.

Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph and his wife, Jordan, each shared photos of their son on social media. Henry is joining 2-year-old twins Andersyn and Finley, who are excited to be big sisters.

Henry has already received some special visitors, including former Vikings linebacker Chad Greenway – or "Uncle Chad."

One week before Henry's arrival, Vikings receiver Adam Thielen also added a little boy to the Thielen clan. Adam, Caitlin and big brother Asher welcomed Hudson James on Jan. 7. Asher gave a "thumbs-up" to Hudson sticking around for the long-haul.

Thielen wrote the following on Instagram:

Hudson James Thielen! We are so excited to welcome you to the fam! Momma and Hudson are doing great and momma crushed it as always, so thankful for such an amazing wife! We love you so much already buddy, and Asher is enjoying being a big bro!

While Kyle and Adam became fathers for the second time around, Vikings long snapper Kevin McDermott became a first-time dad in December.

On Dec. 28, Kevin and his wife, Lauren, were blessed by the birth of a daughter, Campbell Marie.

The Thielens weren't the only Minnesota natives to expand their families this winter.

Vikings fullback and Duluth product C.J. Ham became even more outnumbered when he and his wife, Stephanie, welcomed Stella Renee on Nov. 27. She joined big sister Skylar, who will turn 3 this summer.

Stella arrived just in time to meet "**Vikings Santa Claus**" and to help C.J. give back to the community by **adopting a Boys & Girls Clubs family** for the holidays.

Earlier this year, another member of the running back room became a father.

Latavius Murray and his fiancée, Shauntay Skanes, celebrated the arrival of their son, Major, on Sept. 4.

The first photo that the "Tay Train" posted of Major on Instagram featured, of course, a train-print onesie. The photo received a lot of love, drawing nearly 14,000 "likes" from friends, family and fans.
