Tillman tweets news of daughter's birth
Chicago Bears cornerback Charles Tillman tweeted Tuesday that he and his wife Jackie welcomed their fourth child, a daughter.
"Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers... Wife and baby are doing great," Tillman tweeted.
Tillman made news last week when he said in a radio interview that he would miss the Bears-Texans game on Sunday if his wife went into labor that day. He later tweeted ESPN Radio's "Mike & Mike In The Morning" that he would play and the baby would come on Monday.
Tillman, who was the NFC defensive player of the month for October, had six tackles and helped hold Andre Johnson to four catches for 35 yards in the Bears' 13-6 loss to the Texans.
Tillman has a son and two daughters, including Tiana, who was born with a form of cardiomyopathy, a weakening of the heart and its pumping system that required a heart transplant in 2008.
