Sam Ponder Shares Scary Personal News On Instagram

Sam Ponder has a message for Cam Newton.

ESPN Sunday NFL Countdown host and former College GameDay personality Sam Ponder shared some major personal news on Instagram last week.

Sam and her husband, Christian Ponder, welcomed their third child, a daughter named Price, into the world.

Price is a beautiful baby and Sam and Christian have what appears to be an awesome family (their oldest daughter, Scout, was a big-time favorite on the College GameDay set). Unfortunately, Sam shared some scary personal news on Instagram earlier today. Price had to undergo an emergency surgery. Thankfully, she made it through. "Through a series of terrifying and sudden events, our sweet newborn baby Price ended up in emergency surgery in the middle of the night. We were short on time and frankly, in shock. Thanks to the incredible surgical team @mountsinainyc and their skill and decisiveness, our precious girl made it. They treated her like their own, and answered all our blubbering fearful questions. Her recovery in the #NICU was nothing short of miraculous for a tiny body that had just undergone such trauma. I cannot thank the women who cared for her day and night enough. We are home now, still recovering, but overwhelmed with thankfulness for a God who provided real peace and comfort in the midst of our worst nightmare, incredible surgeons, doctors and nurses, parents who didn’t hesitate to jump on a plane and help and the prayers of friends and family who believed for her healing," she wrote.

Our thoughts are with Sam, Christian, Price and the rest of the family.
