Drew Brees and family welcome fourth child, an adorable baby girl (photo)


Drew Brees was noticeably absent from New Orleans Saints practice on Monday, but he had a great reason for missing: He was at the hospital to support his wife Brittany as she delivered the couple’s fourth child.

Brees took to Twitter on Tuesday morning to announce the little bundle of joy, a girl, had been born.

The quarterback did not reveal the baby’s name — if she has one yet — but she joins big brothers Baylen, Bowen and Callen (top, Brees tweeted the boys were “Boys excited about their @JimmyJohns delivery for lunch) in the Brees Brood.

And in case you were wondering, yes, Brees was back at practice on Tuesday, presumably a little tired and worn out from the night, although not as worn out as his wife, obviously. But of course that’s a small price to pay for such a wonderful thing.
