The College Football Playoff coverage was interrupted by a false labor.

The University of Michigan faced Texas Christian University in the semifinals of the College Football Playoff.

The game was broadcasted on the "Field Pass with The Pat McAfee Show"

Robert Griffin III was a game analyst on the show until his wife called to tell him she was in labor.

When Grete called, the former football player told his co-hosts he needed to leave and then explained that she was in labor.

As he ran out of the stadium, the cameras caught the exchange and he shared it on his social media accounts.

Grete took to social media on Sunday to announce that she had not given birth on Saturday night. She applauded her husband's dedication to his family in the photo she shared.

Grete said that the baby girl decided it wasn't time yet even though she tried to make a dramatic entrance. I gave him a call in the middle of him being on live TV fully expecting to not get a hold of him but I guess when your wife is 9 months pregnant and calls you you answer the phone no matter what.

She said that the man stopped calling a bowl game and ran to the airport to catch a flight back to his hometown. I am so thankful for how you love me, care for me, and sacrifice for me, my hero.

After welcoming their first child together, Gloria, 5, in July 2017, the couple tied the knot in March.
