Brian Jennings Celebrates Twice

Posted by Taylor Price on September 18, 2012 – 5:39 PM

Brian Jennings was thrilled to beat the Detroit Lions this past Sunday night, but it wasn’t his best news of the day.

Hours after the 49ers improved to 2-0 on the season, the 49ers long snapper’s wife Nicole went into labor and gave birth to couple’s second son, Max, at 2:11 Monday morning.

Like a good husband and father, Jennings raced over to the hospital like he was covering an Andy Lee punt.

“The dude wanted to come out for the victory party,” offered Jennings, the longest-tenured 49ers player, now in his 13th season with the team that picked him in the seventh round of the 2000 NFL Draft.

Jennings joked that because of the well-known short window to celebrate NFL victories, Max Joseph Jennings made his way into the world at the perfect time.

“We got six hours to celebrate each win,” Jennings said, “so we had to get it into that window.”

Jennings said Nicole and Max are doing well ever since the birth. The 49ers long snapper will be picking them up from the hospital following his Tuesday responsibilities at team headquarters.

“It’s awesome,” Jennings said of having a second son to join his other boy, Jackson. “We’re fired up.”

With the boys being two years apart, Jennings said he already has 49ers baby gear for Max to wear this week. Jennings and members of the team’s equipment staff put together a miniature car for the Jennings boys to enjoy. The goal, according to the long snapper, was to give Jackson a car to push Max around the house.

The 49ers are all excited about a 2-0 start with wins over the 2011 playoff teams, but the team’s long snapper might just have it better than anyone else.

Who’s got it better than Jennings?

“NOBODY!” he said emphatically.
