According to the Fins official website, when asked how he felt about his first Fathers Day as a new daddy, Ellerbe stated:
Its a crazy feeling,?Ellerbe said. I mean, its like excitement like winning the Super Bowl every year you play to the 10th power and then its like a shot with that. I dont know, you cant describe it, really. You really cant describe it, what type of feeling it is. Its a great feelingI finally get to celebrate Fathers Day,?he said. Im definitely looking forward to it. I?know my phone is going to blow up being that this is my first year being considered a father.
When asked about his first experiences with Nevan, Ellerbe continued to say:
(Having your baby fall asleep in your arms is) another one of those feelings you cant explain. Its just a love that youve never experienced until you had your own kid. You never understand how much a parent loves you until you have your own. Its just one of those things that you have to have a kid to understand it. Im just in love all over again now.
Isnt that just the most adorable thing youve ever heard!?
Congratulations to the Ellerbes and to all the poppas out there, new and old, Happy Fathers Day!
