WARWICK, RI- From the looks of this Kent hospital room in Warwick, you can tell the patient must be a Patriots fan.

On January 12th, Brady Harrison Hawley was born. He may not know it yet, but his die–hard, Patriot–fan parents have made it impossible for him to like any other football team.

"We were in the labor room during the playoff game. In between contractions I'm trying to watch and he's giving me updates," said mother, Mary Beth Hawley.

Today, they're leaving the hospital; everyone in Patriots gear.

Mom and dad were fans before they met two years ago, and the intensity only grew once they married last July.

Mary Beth adds, "Well, before we got married I actually informed him that we wouldn't be naming our first born Bill Belichick because that was his number one pick."

Robert Hawley added, "That's what I was thinking, but that got shot down pretty quick; always respected Bill Belichick. I think he's a great coach."

Although Brady was calm for the interview, the 7-pounder is a feisty one.

"When it comes to doing something that he doesn't want to do, he's a fighter. He's such a fighter and even the nurses were commenting on how much of a fighter he is and how strong he is. So, we're going to have our hands full in a good way, definitely," said Mary Beth.
