His team may not be going to the Super Bowl, but Eli Manning still has plenty to celebrate: He’s a dad again!

The New York Giants quarterback and his wife Abby welcomed their third child, daughter Caroline Olivia, on Thursday, Jan. 29, the New York Post reports.

Now that the couple — already parents to daughters Lucy Thomas, 19 months, and Ava Frances,  — have added another baby girl to their family, Manning, who grew up with brothers, continues to be outnumbered at home.

“My wife has two sisters, then her mom comes and then it’s six on one,” the football star, 34, told PEOPLE in June.

But he isn’t complaining; Manning has completely embraced life with his little ladies.

“I’m enjoying every moment of it and being with them,” he said. “Some of the things they say and do catch me by surprise and give me a good laugh.”

He may be an Oscar-winning actor and director, but like most parents, Kevin Costner still plays “Let it Go” on repeat.

“My little girl [Grace Avery, 4½,] dresses up every day,” he says. “It’s the Frozen household. Everybody has to freeze when she says so. The boys [Hayes Logan, 6 next month, and Cayden Wyatt, 7½,] are just so sick of it!”

But for Costner, married to Christine since 2004, those family moments are what make life so fulfilling. “It’s really fun to see [all my kids] together,” says the dad of seven, who also has four grown children.

“It’s been a really good life and my children are living proof.”
