For Drew and Brittany Brees, the fourth time's the charm; the couple is expecting their first daughter after three consecutive sons.
The announcement was made on E!'s "Chelsea Lately" show Monday. Several New Orleans television stations and ESPN are reporting confirmation of the couple's happy news.
During a February interview with the same network, the Saints quarterback revealed that, when he asked his three sons Baylen, 5, Bowen, 3, and Callen, 1, whether or not they wanted a younger brother or sister, the boys unanimously responded, "A sister!"
"Okay, it's out," Brees told an E reporter. "We just want a healthy baby."
"We have three little boys and they are wild, crazy boys. And we'd asked them--or we told them--Mommy has a baby in her tummy. Would you like another brother or would you like a little sister? And they all said that they would like a little sister," Brees said in the interview.
The Super Bowl XLIV MVP is well known for his iconic, post-championship image of the quarterback hoisting an infant Baylen above him (instead of the Lombardi) in Miami's Sun Life Stadium in February of 2010. Drew and Brittany originally tied the knot in 2003.
