T.Y. Hilton scores TD, celebrates for newborn baby girl

Sometime timing in life is everything.

Indianapolis Colts receiver T.Y. Hilton seems to have perfect timing both on and off the football field.

Agent Erik Burkhardt tweeted that Hilton's wife, Shantrell, gave birth to the couple's baby girl Sunday morning.

The receiver was able to be with his wife during the birth of their baby and made it to the stadium in time to face the Jacksonville Jaguarson Sunday afternoon.

Hilton was sleeping at the team hotel when his wife went into labor and they couldn't get ahold of him, Burkhardt said, per NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport. Hilton's best friend, Peter Riley, raced to the team hotel, banged on the door and then raced Hilton to the hospital where he made it just in time. All that and he'll be at the stadium in time for kickoff.

Hilton also had a great message for all Fantasy Football fans starting the wideout:

Congrats to the entire Hilton family!

UPDATE: The man came through on a 73-yard score and rocked the football like a baby. Indy went on to win 23-3.
