Adrian PetersonAdding more tragedy to an already awful story, we’re learning that the first time Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson saw his deceased 2-year-old son was in the hospital this week.

According to TMZ, Peterson only recently learned that he was the father of the child. The mother of the boy reportedly had an ex whom she suspected was the father. She had him take a paternity test, but it turned up negative. The woman then went to Peterson, with whom she had a sexual encounter a few years ago, and Peterson reportedly offered to help the situation.

Peterson is said to have been very involved since learning of the tragedy.
