Pull out the pink — it’s a girl for New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees! The baby was born Monday night and weighed a healthy 7 pounds, 7 ounces. This is the first girl for Brees and his wife, Brittany. The couple also have three boys: Baylen, Bowen, and Callen.
Although the family is holding off on releasing the baby’s name until the birth certificate is inked, that doesn’t mean the proud dad is staying mum about his little girl. He tweeted the birth announcement and has already posted two photos, including a sweet selfie taken in the hospital (right). “It melted my heart to watch her being born last night,” Brees told reporters after practice on Tuesday. “I got to take the snap, so to speak, and catch her on the way out. That’s a memory I will have forever.” (Side note: Good thing he’s got good hands!)
Now with a much-anticipated little girl in the family, Brees said he and Brittany are probably done expanding their brood. According to NOLA.com, three boys and one girl were what the couple originally wanted.
Congratulations to the Brees family!
