4-Month-Old Captures the Hearts of America as He Joins First Round Pick Dad at NFL Draft

Playing Baby Of Newly Drafted Denver Bronco Garret Bolles Steals Spotlight At NFL Draft

Garett Bolles may be headed to football stardom, but it was his baby boy who got all the attention as he was carried to the stage by his dad at the NFL draft in Philadelphia Thursday night.

The beaming offensive tackle from the University of Utah hoisted the 4-month-old onstage after he was picked 20th overall by the Denver Broncos in front of the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

Bolles, 24, is the first draft pick to bring a baby onstage and clearly relished the moment as he wrapped Little Kingston in a brand new Broncos jersey.

From the red carpet onto the stage, Kingston accompanied his father while wearing a black and white checkered vest with the pants to match. Bolles sported a gray suit from Collection by Michael Strahan.  

The 6’5", 297-pound tackle didn’t have a smooth life growing up. He says his father, a Navy veteran, kicked him out of the house at the age of 19  for his behavior.

His high school lacrosse coach took him in and he spent two years doing missionary work before playing football at Snow College and then the University of Utah.

He married his wife, Natalie in December of 2015 and had Kingston a year later in December 2016.

"I'm ready to work," Bolles tweeted Thursday night.

Rounds 2 and 3 of the draft will continue Friday at 7 p.m. ET on ESPN and the NFL network.
