Newborns suit up like Chiefs at Kansas City hospital

February 4, 2020

They might have been born yesterday (well, Sunday)—but they already have winning fashion sense: The University of Kansas Health System dressed some infants who arrived in time for the Super Bowl kickoff in tiny Chiefs uniforms—creating a sea of red in the hospital’s neonatal intensive care unit.

“Because we treat them like Chiefs, they dressed the part!” the Kansas City-based hospital posted on Facebook, adding, “In celebration of the upcoming Super Bowl and an impending visit from [official Chiefs Mascot] KC Wolf and Chiefs Ambassador Shawn Barber (and with permission from their parents), our NICU babies were dressed as The Kansas City Chiefs players.”

According to a report by Fox News, the mini Chiefs were photographed wearing tiny wigs and team gear, including jerseys, wristbands, and pompoms. One infant even rocked a Chiefs bow tie.

The adorable photos warmed the hearts of Facebook users, generating 377,000 “likes” on the social media site by Monday.

“Cheers to the Chiefs fighting hard Sunday like these beautiful babies do each day!! Prayers to the families of each and every one of these tiny miracle[s],” one Facebook user commented on the post.
