Baltimore Ravens kicker Justin Tucker is adding another Tucker to the household. The opera singing, bad-ass kicker announced on Facebook that he and his wife Amanda Tucker are expecting their first child together.

I'd hate to be his wife when the little one starts kicking. That kid could probably boot a field goal from 20-yards out already.

As you can see from Tucker's post, they are expecting the baby this spring, putting it at a perfect time right before the 2016 NFL season starts. Hopefully Tucker will still be a Baltimore Raven by that time as he is a pending free agent at the end of this season.

Tucker has been looking for a long-term contract with the Ravens and certainly deserves one after his short career performances have put him in the top of all kickers in the history of the NFL. This season alone, Tucker has booted a game-winning field goal against the Pittsburgh Steelers in week 4, in Pittsburgh, notorious for being one of the hardest places to kick. The field goal would give the Ravens one of their only 2 wins this season, making him pretty valuable. Talk right now is that Tucker will likely see the franchise tag as the Ravens want to buy a little more time to work on a contract with him.

Congratulations to the Tucker family.
