NFL player offers encouragement to new dads

Glenn Beck

NFL tight end Benjamin Watson sat down with Glenn Beck and the guys to talk about his upcoming book, "The New Dad’s Playbook: Gearing Up for the Biggest Game of Your Life."

A dad to five, Watson wrote the "playbook" to help new dads learn the ropes. It includes “everything from ‘areola’ to ‘zygote,’” with Watson tapping into his own experience as a husband and a father to write it.

On the show, he talked about the inspiration for the book and what he hoped new dads would take away from it:

“[My wife has] been wanting me to write this book for a while, as a handbook to help dads through pregnancy and supporting their wives, the mother of their children, through this process. When I had my first child … I didn’t know what I was getting into. I didn’t know what to do when my wife had morning sickness. I didn’t know what to do when we went to the OB, and he’s checking for the heartbeat.”

A professing Christian who talks about living out his faith, Watson hoped to do his part to encourage husbands and fathers, especially in a world where too many kids grow up without their dad:

“My goal is to educate guys, but also to empower and encourage them that they can do it.”
