Former Brave and Falcon Brian Jordan is a grandpa!

Former Atlanta Braves and Falcons player turned Fox Sports South analyst  Brian Jordan has a nice title: Grandfather. He shared this adorable photo of his daughter's new baby on Facebook on Monday afternoon:

A dedicated philanthropist devoted to children's causes , Jordan is certainly suited for grandfatherhood. He has authored a number of children’s books and last year announced a partnership with Kennesaw State University and LakePoint Sporting Community to launch the Brian Jordan Center for Excellence and Professional Development. The Bartow County facility, scheduled to open in March, is affiliated with KSU’s WellStar College of Health and Human Services’ Department of Exercise Science and Sports Management.

Jordan also stays active with his foundation, which operates sports camps and literacy programs for kids and awards scholarships to rising college students. Nearly 40 foundation scholars are pursuing degrees at universities throughout the country.

For now he seems focused on enjoying his new gig.
