How is a nervous father supposed to stay calm in those moments before the pregnant mother’s contractions require her to start pushing?
For former Giants offensive guard Kevin Zeitler, the answer was obvious: He practiced his pass sets while his wife was in labor.
Sara Zeitler published to Twitter on Friday a 13-second video of her husband shuffling his feet with his hands swinging in a blocking position while waiting in the hospital room. The hilarious now-viral clip ends with her rolling her eyes, as she laid in bed preparing to give birth to the couple’s second child.
The proud parents later posted a family photo including newborn daughter Parker, with Kevin wearing his Ravens gear.
Zeitler spent the last two seasons with the Giants, where he built a reputation as their top offensive lineman, a well-respected teammate and a coach’s favorite because of the work ethic he represented in the viral video. He is known to drill his footwork in downtime at home, or even while his wife is shopping.
Giants receiver Darius Slayton reacted to the video by writing, “If you know Zeit this is the most Zeit thing ever,” followed by five laughing emojis.
The Giants cut Zeitler for salary-cap savings in March, and he quickly resurfaced on a three-year, $22.5 million contract to start at right guard for the Ravens.
