Mina Kimes Announces Pregnancy at ESPY Awards


Mina Kimes, the renowned NFL analyst, surprised everyone at the ESPY Awards held in Los Angeles on Wednesday night. Instead of discussing football, she had a special announcement to make – she is pregnant.

Sharing her joy on Twitter, Kimes posted a picture of herself cradling her baby bump and wrote, “brought a date” along with a heart emoji. The news came as a delightful surprise to her fans and followers.

Mina Kimes, aged 37, is happily married to Nick Sylvester, a music producer and the co-founder of the alternative label Godmode. This will be the couple’s first child, marking an exciting new chapter in their lives.

Having joined ESPN in 2014 as a reporter for ESPN The Magazine, Kimes quickly established herself as a respected figure in sports journalism. In 2020, she became a member of “NFL Live” and has since made regular appearances on various shows, including “Around the Horn.” Moreover, she has taken on the role of a color commentator for the Los Angeles Rams.

One of the factors that contribute to Kimes’ popularity is her authenticity and wit, which has garnered her a devoted fan base. Notably, she once changed her Twitter profile picture to Mila Kunis after a Boston radio producer mistakenly used a racial slur while referring to her, mistaking her for the actress. Kimes has also captivated her audience with heartwarming anecdotes about watching the Seattle Seahawks with her father, which ignited her passion for football.

In conclusion, Mina Kimes, the esteemed NFL analyst, shared the delightful news of her pregnancy during the ESPY Awards. This joyous occasion marks a significant milestone in her personal life, as she prepares to embrace motherhood alongside her husband, Nick Sylvester. As Kimes continues to excel in her career, her fans eagerly anticipate her return to the world of sports journalism following this joyous chapter.
