Joe Flacco is the father of an 8-pound baby boy.

Dana Flacco, wife of the Ravens quarterback, has given birth to Stephen Flacco. The news was announced on Joe Flacco's Twitter page. Flacco's father is also named Stephen.

Flacco was excused from the second day of the Ravens' three-day mandatory minicamp Wednesday when his wife went into labor.

"Obviously, the labor started, and Joe was high-tailing up the road to Philly to be with Dana," Ravens coach John Harbaugh said Wednesday. "We wish them nothing but the best. They don't know if it's going to be a boy or a girl, so we're all going to find out."
