Who can resist a cute photo of a dad and his new baby? Saints quarterback Drew Brees and his wife Brittany welcomed their fourth child, a daughter, on Aug. 25. So of course he snapped a darling selfie with his newborn baby and tweeted it out.

It's not often that I get to write about two things that I love at once — sports and parenting. So it's nice when a sweet story about a happy football dad makes its way across my computer. And while I'm not a Saints fan (go Chiefs!), I have always liked Brees.

The girl, whose name has been picked but not released to the public, weighed 7 pounds and 7 ounces, and was 20 inches long. Brees reported that he was able to catch his baby as his wife delivered her, which makes this story even sweeter.
