In an interview with the Atlanta Journal Constitution, Matt relayed his excitement about being a new dad.
“We’re obviously very excited,” Ryan told the Atlanta Journal Constitution. We are excited to add to the family here in a couple of months. We are looking forward to it…I’m sure like everybody else you’re unsure, excited, nervous and all of those things, but I’m just very happy for Sarah and myself.
Life as an NFL quarterback is already busy, but things will be even busier during the 2018 season as Matt Ryan becomes a father for the first time.
Matt and his wife, Sarah Ryan, are expecting twins, meaning there will be little time for sleep in the coming months.
Executive director Ziggy Asfaw described Sarah’s impact on the kids in an interview with the Press Herald. She just does it because she loves the relationships she has built. I consider her a friend…She asks how your day is, how your family is – she wants to know what’s going on with you. According to the Atlanta Falcons, Sarah started at point guard for the Boston College women’s basketball team, and finished with 543 assists, the second most in program history when she graduated. Sarah led the team in both assists and minutes played during her final three seasons.
According to the Press Herald, Matt and Sarah introduced the couple to each other through Boston College football.

“It definitely adds some more significance to the number two, before that it was I just liked it [the No. “Now, we have something for it, which is cool.” It did not take long for the internet to turn the photo into a “28-3” meme, a joke about the lead the Falcons blew in Super Bowl LI.
