​Kirk Counsins the quarterback took a back seat during the perfectly-timed Washington Redskins' bye week to make room for Kirk Cousins the dad. 


Cousins and his wife, Julie, welcomed their first child -- a boy named Cooper -- last Friday and the quarterback put this time off to good use. 

He spent the time off as the ultimate family man, napping and relaxing with his new son in one of the best father-son moments this year. 


Cousins is adjusting to the role quite well and looks comfortable embracing his newborn son from the comfort of home. 


He has some great events planned for his family on Friday night as he continues his week off. 

​​Hope he enjoyed it!
