He was a defensive starter for two BCS National Championship teams at the University of Alabama.

Jesse Williams, a former defensive lineman, started on the 2011 Crimson Tide defense — which most consider as the best unit of the Nick Saban era. The group led college football in all five major defensive categories, including scoring defense. He also has a Super Bowl ring in his career with the Seattle Seahawks. Williams accomplished a lot on the field; however, his latest feat is something very special. He is now a father to a beautiful baby girl. Williams shared a photo to social media of his daughter, Bear Aurelia Williams, who entered the world on Wednesday at 7:28 p.m. The native Australian is thrilled for this chapter as a dad.

Williams has two children he can share everything with.
