Who is Micah Parsons’ son and is the linebacker married?

During the very first semester of his freshman year in Penn State, Micah Parsons announced that he was a father. His unnamed girlfriend gave birth to a baby boy on May 1, 2018.

But despite all the news surrounding Micah and his baby boy, there is no update regarding the mom. Micah’s always been tight-lipped about his private life after he made headlines for all the wrong reasons early on in his career. But he’s learned from his mistakes and does his best to set an example for his young one.

So we don’t know if Micah is single or dating, but he gets all the love a man needs in the form of his endearing mom. “All we had was each other. [Considering] the struggles we went through, to finally look at my mom and say ‘we don’t have to struggle anymore’ [means everything],” Parsons said via abc27.com.

Parsons is being tipped as a Top-10 prospect in the 2021 NFL Draft. But only time will tell where he will eventually land ahead of his NFL debut. Either way, we’re excited to see this youngster join the league and make a name for himself in 2021.
