Five months into his NFL retirement, Andrew Luck has settled into a good new life, his father said.

Oliver Luck was on Radio Row on Thursday in his role as the XFL’s commissioner and CEO, but was asked about his famous son.

‘He’s enjoying life’

Chris Hagan of Fox 59 Indianapolis caught up with Oliver Luck in Miami, and here’s what Luck had to say about Andrew:

“He’s having a great time; he’s enjoying life,” Luck said. “He’s healthy, he’s very happy. He and [wife] Nicole have a new baby, Lucy Luck, and he’s a great dad, as I expected him to be. He still lives in Indianapolis and still has strong feelings for the city and for the organization.”

Andrew stunned the NFL world on Aug. 24 when he confirmed news that he was retiring. He cited an “unrelenting” cycle of injuries, pain and rehab over the previous four years in his news conference.
