Many of us have had a pet at some point in our childhood, whether it be a dog, cat, guinea pig or rabbit, but not many of us can relate to John Fox.

The Chicago Bears head coach appeared in a Friday edition of #CoffeeWithCoach with host Lauren Screeden and opened a window into his past. He was asked about the most unique present he ever received for Christmas.

“It was a little woolly monkey,” Fox said. “Her name was Gidget. She was like part of the family. She wore pampers and she would swing around. She was like part of the family. Swear to God.”

When asked whether he was fibbing or being serious, Fox elaborated while speaking with reporters later on Friday.
