Aaron Rodgers’ brother Luke Rodgers and his wife recently had their first child. They named him Jordan, after Luke and Aaron's youngest sibling, Jordan Rodgers.
Luke and Aimee Rodgers tied the knot in 2019, and the couple recently shared photos of their son’s first day on Earth.
Luke Rodgers expressed his admiration and love for his wife, who endured a challenging delivery:
“I can’t even begin to describe how amazing and strong @aimrodgers is and seeing her become a mother is one of the great privileges of my life. Jack came early and via emergency c section and my wife was an incredible champion in bringing him into the world.”
Luke also described his newborn child as the "greatest blessing" in the world.
“8 pounds and 11 ounces — my son is a bruiser. Mommy and Daddy love you more than you could ever know Jack. You are the greatest blessing.”
Luke's younger brother Jordan Rodgers, who the child is named after, was a contestant on the reality TV show The Bachelorette and is currently a college football analyst for ESPN’s SEC Network.
Aaron Rodgers and his family share a complicated relationship
The history of the Rodgers family is complex, and Aaron Rodgers is at the center of the drama. Naturally, familial issues tend to come to light when a family member is a superstar in the NFL. Jordan once candidly told JoJo Fletcher on the bachelorette that Aaron does not keep in touch with the family.
Aaron Rodgers is notably private when it comes to his personal life, only offering glimpses into his personality on The Pat McAfee Show.
On the field, Aaron Rodgers will enter his 17th NFL season with the Green Bay Packers, amid significant changes to his receiving corps. Star wide receiver Davante Adams was traded to the Las Vegas Raiders, and Marquez Valdes-Scantling signed with the Kansas City Chiefs.
The Packers will hope to fill the void with newly-acquired (and former Chiefs wide receiver) Sammy Watkins and will presumably hand a larger role to Allen Lazard, who is seeking a contract extension.
