SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Former Utah Utes and current Indianapolis Colts safety Julian Blackmon announced the birth of his newborn daughter, Zella.

Blackmon shared the news via his Twitter account on Wednesday, April 7.

“MY BEAUTIFUL BABY GIRL DADDY LOVES YOU. HAPPY BIRTHDAY ZELLA LOVE,” Blackmon posted.

The former Utah standout first shared that he was going to become a father during the 2020 NFL season.

Last season was Blackmon’s rookie campaign in the league.

He was first selected out of Utah by the Colts during the third round of the 2020 NFL Draft.

After suffering a season-ending injury in his final college game, the Colts planned to slowly bring Blackmon back from the injury. Due to other injuries in Indianapolis’ secondary, the former Ute was thrust into action early in the season and quickly became a standout player. He finished the year as a starter for the Colts and a key piece to the team’s young core.

During his first season, Blackmon helped Indianapolis to an 11-5 record and a postseason berth.

Blackmon finished the year with 42 total tackles, 35 solo tackles, one forced fumble, two interceptions, and six pass breakups in 15 games.
