In a brief video interview, Allegretti said that winning the Super Bowl and becoming a dad on the same day was "incredible, cannot believe it" and made for the "best day of my life no matter what."
The girls were supposed to arrive in March and weighed in at 4 lbs 15 ounces and 5 lbs 5 ounces. They are healthy, but presently in NICU, according to Derrick's Twitter post.
Truly it was a day of huge personal news with multiple major wins for 26-year-old Allegretti since he also received his second Super Bowl ring.
