There’s a new footballer in the family.

Drew Brees and wife Brittany welcomed their second child, son Bowen Christopher Brees, on Tuesday, Oct. 19, the New Orleans Saints quarterback announced.

Brees — who received over 6,000 suggestions after soliciting his followers for uncommon ‘B’ names via Twitter earlier this month — wrote, “Healthy, happy baby. Big hands, big feet. Brit is great. I am so proud!”

Bowen joins big brother Baylen Robert, 19 months, who celebrated with Brees, 31, on the field after the Saints cinched their Super Bowl win in February.
