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.”
