If there was a contest for the biggest Seattle Seahawks super fans, we would have a winner. Or winners.

The parents of a newborn baby girl have given her the middle name 12th, according to local media reports. Their last name is Mann. Get it? 12th Mann?

The "12th man" is a football reference to the fans in the stadium. Football allows only 11 players on the field. The Seattle Seahawks are the most vocal in the NFL about their love for the "12th Man," believing their fans give them the home field advantage. Their teak flag prominently features the number 12.

The baby's full name is Cydnee Leigh 12th Mann. And if her precious newborn photo (in which she dons a Seahawks baby hat) is any indication, she is blissfully unaware of her tribute to the Seahawks.

"We have two other kids at home that are 10 and 6 and now they want 12th as their middle name, too," Cydnee Lee's mother told a local television station.

Cydnee's parents say they made the final decision about her name during the NFC Championship game.

Here's hoping beautiful baby Cydnee grows up to be as big a Seahawks fan as her folks.
