Indianapolis Colts wide receiver T.Y. Hilton had a day he’ll remember forever.

After Hilton’s wife Shantrell gave birth to the couple’s daughter Sunday morning, many thought T.Y. wouldn’t make it to the stadium for the Colts’ home game against the Jaguars. But Hilton’s agent Erik Burkhardt put that to rest early in the morning:

After the game, Hilton had trouble keeping his emotions under control. Can you blame him?
