Matt Kemp’s Kind Gesture To Terminally Ill Teen

Published

Matt Kemp is more than just a terrific baseball player, the Dodgers outfielder also has a huge heart. Kemp made a kind gesture during Sunday night’s game that was caught on camera, and now, the video has gone viral.

After Sunday night’s loss against the San Francisco Giants, Kemp autographed a ball, and gave it to a terminally ill teen, Joshua Jones. But it didn’t stop there. Kemp proceeded to give the young boy his hat, his jersey, and finally, Kemp reached down, and took off his cleats, and gave them to the 19-year-old.

Joshua and his father sat front row at AT&T Park for a father, son outing, and during the game, the boy’s father told the Dodger’s third base coach, Tim Wallach, about his son’s illness. Jones is suffering from inoperable tumors in his spine and has been given 90 days to live. Wallach later told Kemp about the young boy.

In a pre-game interview before Tuesday’s game against the Diamondbacks, Kemp told reporters he still didn’t even know the kids name and still had not seen the video. “I didn’t plan on taking the jersey off, but it’s something I felt would probably cheer him up a little bit … and that was my first time taking my shoes off in front of the fans,” Kemp shared.

Check out the video of Kemps’ gesture that has gone viral below.

Finally! Taraji P. Henson Confirms Relationship With NFL Baller Kelvin Hayden

Taraji is finally letting the world know what it already knew – she’s in a relationship with NFL cornerback Kelvin Hayden. Henson dished the (cold) tea while on Essence’s Yes, Girl! podcast saying that the reason she kept it a secret was because she’s a private person.

“I’m not the type to blast my personal business. But, you know, I think that’s important for people to know. I’m happy. I’m very very happy. I just am,” the “Empire” actress shared.

Rumors first circulated in December 2015 about Henson and 34-year-old Hayden, who played for the Chicago Bears and the Indianapolis Colts, after photos surfaced of the pair holding hands in Miami. Though Hayden has appeared on her Instagram feed, the Golden Globe winner never confirmed the intimate details until now.

“You know, we’ve been together for two years. No one would really know that because I don’t really blast my info like that. But I’m very happy,” she said.

Taraji girl we could tell. The Hidden Figures actress even broke out singing, “Finally! It has happened to me,”—quoting the CeCe Peniston‘s song “Finally.”

Henson also revealed the couple will be celebrating the holidays together with the new puppy Hayden gifted her with as an early Christmas present.

“Big #KBall with Lil squirt #KBall watching daddy brush his teeth! 😩😂😂😂,” she wrote, teasing a photo of her boo and new pup.

And speaking of Christmas, in case you missed it Taraji hosted her “White Hot Holidays” special on Fox Wednesday night. Peep the clips of Henson having some fun with her celebrity guests including Method Man, DJ Khaled, Neicy Nash, Salt-N-Pepa and The Ying Yang Twins.
