Before the birth, Gina was on bed rest for a month in the hospital, where Junior visited her every day after training-camp practices. "Our first kid, and she was such a tiny thing," says Gina. "It was very scary for both of us. Sydney was, I hate to say 'favorite,' but she was his only girl, and he idolized her and was always so fascinated with her."
