Let him eat cake — a lot of cake.
Veteran NFL quarterback and father of seven Ryan Fitzpatrick, who’s playing with the Miami Dolphins, arrived at an offseason minicamp Tuesday saying he’s packed on a few pounds since last season because he’s eaten a lot of birthday cake .
“The thing with me is I have seven kids, so in January we have three birthdays,” Fitzpatrick, 36, told reporters, according to the Miami Herald. “We’ve got a family birthday party, which includes cake and then we’ve got a friend’s birthday party which includes cake. So, that’s six times in January.”
Khloe Kardashian 's little girl is 1!True Thompson celebrated her first birthday in sparkling style on Friday, sprawled on a bed and surrounded by many, many pink balloons. Kardashian also shared the birthday festivities on her Instagram Stories, posting pics of sweet treats including doughnuts that spelled out the message "Happy Birthday True."
While February offered a bit of a respite, Fitzgerald, his ballooning dad bod and frosting were all soon re-acquainted.
We’ve got three birthdays in March ... That’s cake six out of 10 or 11 days.
“We’ve got three birthdays in March ... which again, that’s a tough stretch. That’s cake six out of 10 or 11 days. Then we’ve got an April birthday. So, it doesn’t slow down,” he said.
Fitzpatrick, who’s a Harvard graduate, is now ready to shed those unwanted pounds and get back into playing shape.
Turn the TV off when you can and turn the conversation on where possible. And remember; loving them is easy, it’s rearing them that’s hard but it does get easier with practise.
“But now that the birthdays are behind me, and I think I’m going to try to go from peak offseason form maybe down to peak in-season form, I’ll be OK,” he said.
And maybe when he gets back into form, he can celebrate with a nice piece of cake, right?
