As much as I would have loved to hear this news while he was hoisting up the Lombardi trophy after winning the Super Bowl in Indianapolis in a few weeks, this is still great news nonetheless. New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees and his wife Brittany are expecting baby #3. Brees confirmed this news via Twitter (@drewbrees) earlier today.

Thanks for the well wishes to Brittany and Baby #3,” said a Tweet from Brees’ account. “She is 2 ½ months. Training camp baby. Bowen wants a lil bro, Baylen a lil sis.

The Brees family already includes his oldest son Baylen, best known for his cameo during the 2009 Super Bowl win, and Bowen who was born just before this past season. Hopefully we get more good news as the entire Who Dat Nation is aware that Drew Brees' contract is up at the end of this NFL season. Brees said today that he would be "beyond stunned" if he didn't return to the team.

So would I, so hurry up and get it sorted Drew! -- Oh, and congrats again on baby #3 ;)
