Adrian Peterson and his wife Ashley will welcome their second child this fall, and they're asking fans for help coming up with a name.

Ashley Peterson tells the Pioneer Press the couple is expecting a boy due in October, and fans can send possible names to to their Twitter accounts - @AdrianPeterson and @MrsAshPeterson.

The couple has one child together, 3-year-old Adrian, Jr.

Peterson has reportedly fathered at least six children, but his wife says she is expecting his sixth child, according to the Star Tribune.

Ashley tells ESPN she's "happy" Adrian is going back to Minnesota.

They have supported us. I just would personally, for me, I would've preferred to be closer to home. That's just a personal preference for me. The Vikings have been supportive of him and the fans have been pretty supportive, so we're happy to be going back.

The family appeared at the ninth annual "Adrian Peterson Day" in his hometown of Palestine, Texas, on Saturday.

Peterson made the trip on a break from Vikings' organized team activities and minicamp, Sporting News reports.
