Ryan O'Callaghan devoted most of his life to playing football, but his dedication to the sport was really just a ploy to hide from his true identity.

The former NFL star, who played for the New England Patriots and Kansas City Chiefs, just came out as gay in a moving interview with OutSports — and admitted he planned on committing suicide when his career was over.

The athlete felt he could never live as an openly gay man growing up in the conservative town of Redding, California, and realized in high school he didn't fit any of the traditional gay stereotypes.

Shortly after coming out to himself in junior high school, O'Callaghan decided that he would hide behind the pinnacle of masculinity: football.

Baby Luna's momma shared:

"Every step I take feels a little shaky. It's such a weird feeling that you wouldn't know unless you have really bad anxiety. You feel like everyone is looking at you."

Still, like we previously mentioned, she hopes it doesn't impede with her wanting to expand her family with husband John Legend:

"I would definitely adopt or have foster children. But I loved being pregnant. Maybe I should be scared [of having PPD again], but I don't know. It couldn't be any worse than it was — could it?"

Aww!

Either way, the Legends will have a beautiful family!

Chris Cornell

More details surrounding Chris Cornell's untimely death continue to come in.

News of the Soundgarden artist's suicide has come as a huge surprise to many including his family, so what exactly happened following the 52-year-old's concert in Detroit on Wednesday night?

According to a police report obtained by The Detroit News, the rock star returned to his hotel room at the MGM Grand Hotel after his show ended around 11:30 p.m. He was escorted by his bodyguard, Martin Kirsten, who helped him fix a computer problem and gave Cornell two Ativan pills, "which victim takes for anxiety."

Shortly after, Chris spoke with his wife Vicky on the phone, during which conversation he sounded "groggy" and abruptly ended the call saying, "I'm just tired."

We still can't believe we lost Chris Cornell so unexpectedly this week.

As we reported, the Soundgarden frontman was found in his hotel room after a gig in Detroit on Wednesday night, with a band of some kind around his neck. His death was ruled suicide by hanging.

In response, the Cornell family's attorney Kirk Pasich says the 52-year-old's loved ones are "disturbed" at speculation the musician would intentionally take his own life — and in a statement from Cornell's wife Vicky, Chris admitted to taking "an extra Ativan or two" before he was found dead.
