What could be better than a Super Bowl ring? A brand-new baby on the way!

New Orleans Saints football star Drew Brees, 33, and his wife Brittany are expecting their third child, the quarterback announced Monday on Twitter.

"Thanks for the well wishes for Brittany and Baby #3," 2010's Super Bowl MVP Brees wrote, referring to his college sweetheart and wife of nine years. "She is 2 1/2 months. Training camp baby."

The family's new arrival will join big brothers Baylen, 3, and Bowen, 15 months.

Says Brees: "Bowen wants a lil bro, Baylen a lil sis."
