A pair of fans of the American football team Seattle Seahawks have reportedly named their baby daughter '12th Mann' as a tribute to the notoriously boisterous home crowd.


The loyal support is often so loud that it is considered a huge advantage for Seattle to play at home.

According to Metro.co.uk, a couple, whose last name in Mann, have shown the regard they have for the Seattle Seahawks by naming their baby, Cydnee Leigh 12th Mann, after the '12th Man', a nickname given to the famous home crowd.

Cydnee has been born just in time for Sunday's Super Bowl showdown between Seattle and Denver Broncos, which will take place in freezing temperatures in New Jersey, the report added.
