Jordyn, meanwhile, would suggest that her husband had secretly wanted their son to be born on July 1. “Connor and his grandpa are very, very close, so they were all rooting for it,” she explained to ABC News. “I couldn’t imagine it any other way, it’s very special. Him being born on [July 1] is the cherry on top [of] this whole pregnancy.”

It’s no surprise, then, that Connor would look upon his grandfather as an inspiration – perhaps not just for himself, either, but now also for his baby son. “Grandpa is the prototype gentle, old man,” Connor told Today. “I hope someday I can be like that. He’s a great guy, truly a role model.”
