Saints QB Drew Brees Has a Second Son on the Way!

New Orleans Saints quarterback and Super Bowl MVP Drew Brees is welcoming another son to the family this fall, he tells PEOPLE Moms & Babies.

“We’re having another boy,” Brees reveals, sharing that the baby is due in October.

“I’m a little nervous going from one to two but I had a younger brother growing up and it was the greatest thing in the world. I’m excited to have two sons of my own and watch them grow up together.”

Although Brees, 31, and his college sweetheart wife Brittany don’t have any names picked out just yet, they’ve been overjoyed to be able to talk with their elder son Baylen Robert, 15 months.

“His first word was ‘Dada,’ says Brees.

“He says so many things now, [but] it’s a word association. He’ll say, ‘Quack, quack’ and we know he’s talking about a duck, or ‘Putt, putt’ and we know he’s talking about his golf clubs.”

With another baby arriving this fall, expect Brees to be on diaper duty.

“I’m not going to lie, my diaper changing skills are actually pretty good,” says Brees, who was on hand at Yankee Stadium in New York Sunday to present a $10,000 check to the New York Yankees Foundation on behalf of Pampers Dry Max. “That’s what I’ve done since day one. In the beginning as a dad that was my way to bond with my son.”

But he’s the first to admit he faced some trouble initially. “There’s been some projectile but we got through that. It’s all about getting him nice and calm in order to change him.”

“He’s so great and hands on. He’s really the best father,” adds Brittany. “The hardest thing for him having to travel [for work] is being away from Baylen. He’s always trying to run home to be there with him. I knew that he was going to be a great dad but he blows me away every day.”

In addition to being an excellent dad, he’s racking up points with his expectant wife as well!

“I get Wendy’s Spicy Chicken Sandwich cravings,” Brittany reveals, “He’ll go drive and get them for me.”

I saw him throw the first pitch of the Yankee game-his son was so cute and seemed so into his dad-very cute!

cute picture! congrats drew and brittany on your adorable son baylen. and congrats to all three of you on your your upcoming baby boy. i am sure you will have your hands full with two boys, but it will be worth every precious moment you all have together πŸ™‚ (just a suggestion for you about a baby name…maybe you should look for a cute name that starts with the letter “d” like drew’s name this time since baylen has a name that starts with a “b” like brittany’s name. but i am sure no matter what you name the baby, it will be a cute name like baylen.)

congrats! i hope they don’t go with another strange name like baylen….c’mon, can you imagine a 35 yr old named baylen?

Not crazy about the name Baylen, but he’s a cutie. Congratulations on your upcoming baby Drew, Brittany, and Baylen! Is Drew’s full name Andrew? Because I agree with sheryl, although if it is, his first name should start with an A, not a D. Congrats anyway.

I’m so happy to hear this news! This New Orleans girl is very proud of what the Saints pulled off last year! A Superbowl ring and a new baby all in the same year… congratulations to Drew and Brittnay! I’m sure Baylan will make a wonderful older brother!

Hopefully they can come up with a better name than ‘Baylen’ for their new son. We’ll see.

his little boy is so cute! he looks just like his daddy! i’m not too crazy about the name baylen. too bad that the colts did not win the super bowl.

Why do people have to go from “congrats!” to “I hate the name they gave to their first son?”

IT IS NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS what they name their children, they like the name, so that is all that matters, not what the public thinks of their chosen baby names. Just be happy for them that they are expanding their family!

Aw, congrats to them! They have such a cute son, I can’t wait to see what baby boy #2 looks like. And if my math is correct, looks like this was potentially a Superbowl baby??? If so, how sweet!

Love the little Yankee’s jersey! I have never seen anything so precious in my entire life (Big Yankee’s fan here). But congrats to him on another boy, his son is so cute!

Lucy on

Congrats! Love Drew and loved watching the Saints win! The cutest moment at the Super Bowl was when Drew was holding his adorable son after they won, with the biggest smile on his face, while on the field. Priceless!

Terri on

Of course it’s none of our business what they name their child, but we’re not on this website because we like to mind our business. πŸ™‚

Congrats to the Brees’ family. Who Dat!

Their baby boy #2 is definitely a playoffs/Super Bowl baby! The Super Bowl was in early February, which is exactly when you’d conceive an October baby. One of my sons was conceived in early February and was born on October 22, his due date.

I think this is really cute. Good luck to all of them.

Oh my goodness, that picture it adorable! Congrats to Drew, his wife and their son on their upcoming arrival!

Rachel on

Due in October? Sounds like a Super Bowl celebration baby to me. πŸ™‚ Congratulations!

Ashlee on

Two little boys, how wonderful! I’m sure the new addition will be just as adorable as his older brother.

Tracy on

The name Declan is cute for a boy and begins with a “D”

Sandra on

Aw.. I was hoping that they would be expecting a little girl.
Oh well.. Their son #1 is precious, and I’m sure that this new boy will be just as well.
Congrats to them! They’re so awesome! πŸ™‚
