Carson and Madison married in July 2018 in Philadelphia, five months after he proposed shortly following his Super Bowl win with the Eagles.

Though the couple has yet to announce the sex of their baby on the way, the fourth-year NFL star previously inspired many new parents to name their kids after him. In March 2018, NBC Sports reported that Pennsylvania saw a spike in the number of babies named Carson in 2017, following his arrival to the Eagles in 2016.

The Eagles play Sunday in Miami against the Dolphins.
