Congratulations are in order for the quarterback of the Oakland Raiders! Derek Carr, an outspoken Christian who frequently speaks at church events and praises God when he's in the spotlight, and his wife Heather Neel recently welcomed their third child into the world.

Their third son was born on May 16th, 2019. His name is Deakon Derek Carr. The star quarterback first announced the news via social media.

“Late last night my wife gave birth to our 3rd son Deakon Derek Carr!” he wrote on Twitter. “They are both completely healthy and doing great! Welcome to the family Deakon!!”

Little Deakon joins older brothers Dallas and Deker Carr. Photos of their new baby boy were not released to the public. However, it is unlikely that they will share pictures with their fans. In recent family photos, the couple has not been showing their older sons’ faces. The two are always facing away from the camera or their faces are covered.

Congrats to Carr’s family on their new little blessing! May God continue to bless them as they adjust to being a family of five.
