"The wife is due any day, so hopefully this baby can stay in until after the game on Sunday," Tillman said. "I hope she stays in - I'm having another girl. Monday, for sure, but if she comes Sunday, I think I'm going to have to be at the hospital Sunday. So, I hope she stays in until after Sunday."

Tillman has had a breakout year this season for a Bears defense that has scored eight touchdowns through eight games. Tillman has forced seven fumbles alone -- including four in last week's win over the Tennessee Titans -- and has returned two interceptions for touchdowns. For his career, Tillman has forced 35 fumbles and returned seven picks for scores. Those seven forced fumbles are already a career high for him in one season.
His first daughter, Tiana, is 5 years old. She was diagnosed with cardiomyopathy, a condition that causes an enlarged heart, and received a heart transplant when she was 3 months old. Tillman and his wife appeared on Oprah in April 2011 when his wife met the mother of his daughter's heart donor.
