The controversy over Charles Tillman's decision to potentially miss the Chicago Bears' Week 10 game against the Houston Texans if his wife went into labor turned out to be much ado about nothing, as Tillman played in Chicago's 13-6 loss to the Texans. On Tuesday, Tillman tweeted that both his wife and new baby are healthy.
Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers... Wife and baby are doing great.— Charles Tillman (@peanuttillman) November 13, 2012
Tillman's newest child joins his two sons and daughter. Tillman's first daughter, Tiana, was born with a condition called "cardiomyopathy," which required her to have a heart transplant in 2008. In 2011, Tillman's wife was featured on "Oprah," where she met the mother of her daughter's heart donor.
Tillman has been the catalyst for Chicago's elite defense in 2012, having forced seven fumbles along with two interceptions, both of which he's returned for touchdowns.
