“My whole heart. Welcome to the world of Jack Jordan Rodgers. You are loved and valued beyond measure, ”Luke, 40, posted via Instagram on Monday, June 20, three days after the birth of his son.
A resident of Nashville, Tennessee, explained the reasons for the nicknames of his firstborn, writing: “Jack, we choose your name because it means that God is merciful. Your middle name is for @ jrodgers11 and we can only pray that you grow up to be generous, kind, loyal (and tanned) and an amazing person a character like your Uncle Jordan. ”
Luke, who got married in April 2019, shared photos of his son’s arrival, revealing that it was “a long journey filled with pain and loss” to increase their family.
“I can’t even begin to describe how amazing and strong @aimrodgers is, and seeing her become a mother is one of the great privileges in my life. “Jack came earlier and by ambulance, and my wife was an incredible champion in bringing him into the world,” he added. “8 pounds and 11 ounces – my son has bruises. Mom and Dad love you more than you could know Jack. You are the greatest blessing. ”
Aimee, for her part, snapped over Bachelor’s degree alum, 33, while sharing even more photos of baby Jack.
“Our greatest blessing has arrived,” she wrote via social media At Monday. “Luke chose his name 3 years ago, Jack means ‘God is merciful’, and Jordan by one of the best people we know @ jrodgers11 – Jack will adore you, Uncle Jordan.” None of the new parents mentioned Aaron (38) and his role as an uncle who came for the first time.
Jordan, which is in Europe on its own and JoJo Fletcherhoneymoon, shared his happiness through becoming an uncle by responding to the post of his big brother. “My little man JJ !!! She already loves him and I love you and Aimee so much! ” wrote a sports broadcaster. “I’m so happy for you and so fucking thrilled you’re an uncle.”
Choosing Luke’s son’s name is the latest example he and Jordan have a strong bond – and a subtle reminder that the brothers have a tense relationship with Aaron.
“It simply came to our notice then [with Aaron] “We miss our brother,” Luke said during a meeting in his hometown in 2016 Aaron was noticeably absent from the visit. “I believe that God has completed things and that everything would return to being a family.”
The ex Big D cohost, for his part, explained: “Aaron and I don’t really have that much of a relationship. It’s kind of the way he chose life, and I chose to stay close to my family, my parents and my brother. “
Tensions among Rogers’ boys have continued since then because the NFL player missed Jordan and Fletcher’s May wedding despite being on the guest list. (Luke was Jordan’s best man after the Vanderbilt University alum had previously sided with Luke at his wedding three years earlier.)
“It’s a sad situation for the family, and especially for Jordan, who really loves his brother,” the source said exclusively told Us Weekly at the time, noting that “there is still a family rift” that has not been “reconciled” so far. “Aaron missed his big day and it’s something Jordan will never forget. Jordan invited his whole familyincluding Aaron, even knowing he probably won’t be present because they’ve been away for a long time. “
