Mike Florio of PRO FOOTBALL TALK reports today that “Suzy Kolber is a new mother, according to an ESPN spokesman who confirmed what apparently was mentioned at some point late Wednesday night on the air.”
“We reported several months ago (more than three and less than nine) that Kolber is pregnant. Our own MDS told me that he saw her while he was covering the Vikings-Bears Monday nighter in December for AOL, and that she obviously was expecting something other than an alcohol-induced fondling from a retired quarterback.”
Florio has also tracked down the sex and rather coincidental name of Kolber’s new daughter.
Kellyn? For a girl? Hmmm. Why did we think of him when we first heard the name? Maybe she’s going for an association with the only sober New York Jets QB we can currently name.
There’s no other details of the birth available. Including who the father is. We suppose we can’t blame Kolber for keeping her social life undercover, though she is a breakout internet celebrity thanks a certain website and her unfortunate association with the most overrated quarterback in the history of the Pro Football Hall of Fame (more INTs than TDs?!).
Thanks to her muffling her off-mic life, and the Joe Namath debacle, we’re guessing assorted drunk daddy jokes will soon circulate.
And it is a little unfair for us to expect Kolber to let us know who the father is, or who she’s currently dating at all. We certainly don’t give a damn who male sports broadcasters are partnered up with (except of course, our obsession, Steve Berthiaume). It’s just reality that females of the (mildy) attractive variety are always going to garner that unwanted attention. And no, Lesley Visser and Dick Stockton do not count.
UPDATE: KISSING SUZY KOLBER’s response: “Please Let Her Middle Initial Be S. Please Let Her Middle Initial Be S.“
UPDATE #2: The PHILADELPHIA DAILY NEWS notes Suzy’s father is also keeping mum on who the baby daddy is.
