Adrian Peterson’s wife is having a baby, and the couple would welcome suggestions from fans for a name.
“That’d be fine,” the Minnesota Vikings’ star running back told the St. Paul Pioneer Press on Saturday at Adrian Peterson Day in his hometown of Palestine, Texas.
Ashley Peterson said she is due to give birth in October to a boy. She and her husband said fans could send possible names to his Twitter account @AdrianPeterson or her account @MrsAshPeterson.
“We’re still thinking of a name,” said Ashley Peterson, who married the running back last July. “We’ve got a while to think of one.”
The child will be the second Peterson has had with Ashley, the first being Adrian Jr., 3. It will be the seventh child overall for Peterson.
Peterson is excited about having another boy. He gave plenty of thanks to his wife for the support she has provided since a child-abuse incident became public last September and he missed the final 15 games of the season.
“She’s been the backbone to our family,” Peterson said. “She’s a strong woman. I outkicked my coverage. She’s been great, and she’s been very supportive. We have been through this journey together.”
