Drew Brees Welcomes Fourth Child Daughter Charles Sykes/Invision/AP

Drew Brees just scored a major touchdown: a baby girl!

The New Orleans Saints quarterback has welcomed his fourth child, daughter Rylen Judith Brees, with wife Brittany, he announced on Twitter.

“Spent the early morning with our new baby girl!” Brees, 35, Tweeted, along with a sweet snapshot of him holding his bundled-up newborn.

Mom and baby “are happy, healthy and doing great! God’s greatest gift!”

Born Monday, Aug. 25, at 7:43 p.m., the new addition (whose name has been chosen but has yet to be revealed) weighed 7 lbs., 7 oz., and measured 20 inches long. “It just melted my heart to watch her born,” Brees said after practice Tuesday. “I actually got to take the snap, so to speak, catch her on the way out.”

In a second photo, the proud new dad cuddled up to his pretty-in-pink daughter, writing, “The best selfie ever!”

The football player and Brittany are already parents to three sons — Callen Christian, 2, Bowen Christopher, 3½, and Baylen Robert, 5½ — and Brees says their fourth child will be the final one.

“Brit was looking at me during that delivery like, ‘Hey, this is the last one,'” he joked. “I think I’m done. Vasectomy. We’ve got some football games to win first. And then as I’ve been told by those who have experienced it, do it Saturday before the final round of The Masters [in April] so I’ve got an excuse to sit around and watch it.”

I saw him at Tulane’s graduation ceremony and he is a very classy guy. I wish him and his family all the best on the newest addition to their family. Lucky little girl…she’ll have 3 big brothers watching after her. She’s a beautiful baby…love to know what they named her.

My team isn’t the New Orleans Saints but I do like Drew Brees. I think he is a class act and great family man. So glad he finally had a little girl, now his family is complete. Many blessings to this wonderful man and his family.

Mary on

Love this family!!! So happy for them!

Tanja on

Congrats.She is so cute. 😀

I don’t get the “finally” comments though.Just because he has three sons doesn’t mean a girl is a “must have.”

If it was a celebrity with three daughters and people had posted “finally” after having a fourh child that is a boy the ladies here would’ve went ballistic. Witnessed that with Jamie Oliver.

Anyways.The baby girl completed this beautiful family. 🙂

Congratulations on your beautiful daughter. Wonder if her name will start with the letter “C.” 🙂

Lolah on

Taking guesses on the name. They seem to like EN weird spelling names so probably Adysen or Madysen or Alysen.

Those are my bets lol

Congrats to them! Wonder why they haven’t shared her name, though? They released their son’s’ names right away! Hope it’s not something really weird or embarassing or something! 😉

Okay, according to another article I just read, they want to wait until her name is “official” (on the birth certificate) before they announce it. He also said that they had narrowed their name choices down to two and chose one after spending a bit of time with her and seeing which one fits her. All of that makes me thinking that they’re waiting until the name is “official” to announce in case they end up changing their minds at the last minute! 😉

Her name was announced during tonight’s game… Rylan Judith Brees! (Think I spelled that first name correctly.)

Hopefully their daughter’s name is going to be a normal name, not some kind strange name.
