NEW ORLEANS Drew Brees and his wife Brittany are expecting a third child, the Pro Bowl quarterback confirmed by Tweet Friday.

Brees said his family would add to the clan that already includes young Baylen, who rose to notoriety as he was held by his father after the team won the Super Bowl in February 2010, and Bowen, who was born before this past season.

'Thanks for the well wishes to Brittany and Baby #3,' said a Tweet from Brees' account. 'She is 2 1/2 months. Training camp baby. Bowen wants a lil bro, Baylen a lil sis.'

Brees contract will be up once the NFL season is complete. Friday he said he would be 'beyond stunned' if he didn't return to the team.
