Jaxon Shipley welcomes baby boy to the world

Posted April 17th, 2016


Though it’s much too early to speculate, another Shipley might be in Texas’ future after the family grew by one this weekend. Former Texas Longhorns wide receiver Jaxon Shipley shared the news of the birth of his son Stone Mac on Instagram on Saturday.

Shipley’s wife Blaze wrote on her Instagram post that their bundle of joy weighs 7 pounds, 2 ounces.

Jaxon is the younger brother of Jordan Shipley, another former Longhorn. Jordan spent three seasons in the NFL before retiring and exploring other interests, such as pranking the internet.

Baby Stone isn’t the only infant in the Shipley family. Jordan and Jaxon’s sister Shelby recently gave birth to a baby girl named Mia Sloan.

Jaxon played for the Longhorns for four years and finished third in school history in receptions. He signed with the Arizona Cardinals as an undrafted free agent in 2015, where he spent the entire season on the practice squad and was recently re-signed to a future contract.
