University of Michigan head football coach Jim Harbaugh's littlest Wolverine has "graduated" from the neonatal intensive care unit where he's been since his birth earlier this month.

Harbaugh and his wife, Sarah, welcomed the newest addition to their family on Jan. 11 — nearly one month early. And on Jan. 30, little John Paul Harbaugh was able to graduate from C.S. Mott Children's Hospital's neonatal intensive care unit.

Harbaugh, now a father of seven, has shared updates and photos of his newest son on social media. As  Faithwire pointed out, Harbaugh, who is Catholic, has often praised God on social media for his son as well.

He previously said that John Paul was expected on Feb. 6.

Harbaugh took over as Michigan's head football coach in 2015 after a three-year stint in the NFL leading the San Fransisco 49ers. The 53-year-old played college football for the University of Michigan as well where he was a Heisman Trophy finalist.

Harbaugh played professionally for a handful of teams, including the Indianapolis Colts, Chicago Bears and San Diego Chargers.

Harbaugh's older brother, John, is head coach of the Baltimore Ravens.
