SUPER BOWL hero Nick Foles is set to take a break from NFL after his wife suffered a miscarriage after 15 weeks.
The Jaguars quarterback — who fired the Philadelphia Eagles to their maiden Super Bowl win in 2018 — made the switch to Jacksonville during the close season.
But the 30-year-old is set to take some time away from the game to spend time with his family.
His wife Tori, 28, revealed she miscarried their unborn son after contracting pneumonia in a heartbreaking Instagram post.
She said: “As several of you knew, we were about 15 weeks pregnant with our 2nd baby.
“Early Sunday morning after a rough couple days fighting a ‘virus’ of some sort, I went into sudden labour and knew something was wrong.
“Not long after we learned we had miscarried our baby boy.
“To fully labour and deliver and even see our baby boy was a pretty devastating process.
“Come to find that I had contracted an infection of pneumonia in the blood.
“The emotions go back and forth from immense and overwhelming sadness, confusion and anger to a firm belief that God has this fully in his hands and will use this for good.
“We cannot always understand or explain, but we know that is true.”
Family man Foles had two stints with the Eagles and his second turned out to be absolutely extraordinary as he anchored them to a sensational win in the NFL’s biggest prize.
He didn’t even start their title-winning season as No1 quarterback, but a knee ligament injury to Carson Wentz meant he stepped in.
Foles’ iconic catch — nicknamed the ‘Philly Philly’ — in the Eagles’ 41-33 victory over the New England Patriots has gone down in NFL history, given how rare it is for a quarterback to catch a touchdown.
The doting dad celebrated the victory by bringing adorable daughter Lily on to the victory podium wearing headphones.
Foles has yet to play a game for his new team, but head coach Doug Morrone is giving him as much time as he needs to spend time with Tori and his family.
Morrone said: “Our thoughts and prayers are with Nick and his family.

Foles is a devout Christian and has previously declared his desire to become a pastor after he retires.
