Drew Brees announced on Sunday night that he and his wife, Brittany, are expecting their third son. The Saints quarterback announced the news on Twitter; thankfully Saints Rapid Reporter Larry Holder is super diligent and we didn't miss it.

The babies Brees are oddly famous; Drew's first son, Baylen (above), became a mini-celebrity when the quarterback held him and his gigantic earphones in the aftermath of the Saints Super Bowl victory a few years ago. Their second son, Bowen, got his name via a Twitter contest to find interesting B-related names. (We're hoping the new one will be "Brinson Brees," because Brinson is the best B, obviously.)

Naturally, the latest baby news had a twist as well.

"Found out the sex of the baby by Brittany baking cupcakes today," Brees tweeted Sunday. "Bit into the center, all BLUE. Boy #3 is on the way!"

Color-coded cupcakes are absolutely the best way to find out what kind of baby you're having; not only is it a clever method of delivering the news, but it's delicious too.

More interestingly, though, is what Holder points out in his Rapid Report: Brees is the second notable Saints quarterback to produce a trio of baby boys. The last one to do so? Archie Manning.

His sons -- Peyton, Eli and Cooper -- are decent at football and relatively famous. There's certainly no guarantee that Baylen, Bowen and Currently Nameless Baby Boy will be good at football, but there's certainly a precedent set.

Either way, congrats to Mr. and Mrs. Brees on their latest piece of great parenting news.

Brees' wife doesn't need help delivering babies

Posted by Will Brinson

Drew Brees, Super Bowl MVP and all-around awesome dude who doesn't appear tainted morally by wealth and fame, is getting profiled on "60 Minutes" Sunday night.

Naturally, there will be discussion about how good he is at football. Most interesting, though, is the discussion of what will happen if Brees' lovely wife, Brittany, happens to go into labor while Drew is playing football. Essentially, she won't let him know .

"He's not going to get a call ... He's not going to know," Brittany says. "If I go into labor, I'm going to get the drugs and just pretend everything’s fine."

And Papa Brees is totally fine with that.

"Even if she was on her way to the hospital, water had broke, she's about to give birth, she would make up some elaborate story to make me comfortable and at ease," says Brees.

That's a good thing (I think) and it's not entirely inappropriate to be on board with her opinion since, you know, it's her body. There's no need for the Saints to lose a game (or for Brees to miss one) unnecessarily because of their child. After all, they've already got one, you know? (I kid, I kid. In fact, I ran this whole thing by the future-ex-Mrs. Brinson and she said "Get it girl!" so I think it's totally fine for Brittany to do this.)

Plus, can the Brees family actually do anything wrong at this point? I'm going with "no" and just assuming that they know what they're doing even if it means pretending Mrs. Brees isn't going into labor.
