Things Got Awkward When ESPN’s Suzy Kolber Asked A Hesitant Saquon Barkley To Shout Out His Girlfriend On National TV

Just two days, former Penn State standout running back Barkley announced that his girlfriend, Anna Congdon, had given birth to their daughter less than 48 hours before the NFL draft.

Words can’t even describe how I feel right now. You are the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen in my life. Thank God for blessing me with you in my life and into my arms. I pray that I can be the best father to you and help you grow into an amazing woman. I love you so so so much #DaddysLittleGirl Jada Clare Barkley 4.24.18

During last night’s draft, Barkley was picked #2 overall by the NY Giants and during his post-draft interview, ESPN’s Suzy Kolber made things a bit awkward when she continually implored Barkley to shout his girlfriend on national TV.

I’m not entirely sure why Kolber randomly put Barkley on the spot on national TV but he really looked like he wasn’t happy with her blowing up his spot.
