In a lengthy Instagram post, the proud dad revealed that Wood gave birth to Baby Zydn on Thursday, February 17th.

“THE biggest blessing I’ve ever had in my life arrived here on earth! The words, I can’t even put together for the overwhelming emotions that ran thru me … a moment I will never forget and cherish forever,” he captioned a carousel of candid images bonding with his newborn and the mother of his child. “Zydn was born [and] at that moment I knew my life changed for the better.”

In the images, OBJ seemed to be in good spirits despite recovering from a knee injury that happened the day of Super Bowl 56. He continued the post by praising Wood.
