Plenty of people have their opinions about ESPN’s Mina Kimes, but let there be no doubt that her NFL Live coworkers are enormous fans of hers and will miss her while she’s away on maternity leave.
Kimes begins her maternity leave on Tuesday but before she goes, everyone at NFL Live wanted to give the soon-to-be-mom a major sendoff so she knows how much she’ll be missed.
“Our dear friend Mina Kimes, her last show before maternity leave is tomorrow,” said Laura Rutledge, standing next to Dan Orlovsky in Cincinnati. “Mina, we are gonna miss you like crazy. We wanted to just send you some thoughts, maybe a little bit of advice too before you become a mom.”
“Oh no,” Kimes can be heard saying as a montage of her co-workers praising her and sharing their excitement for her baby played.

Given the camaraderie and playfulness the contributors often have with one another on the show and social media, it’s little surprise that they would want to send Kimes off with the very best wishes. And she was incredibly grateful for the love.
See you guys soon ✌️ https://t.co/1EmmN3wm5U
