Minnesota Vikings quarterback Brett Favre, a greybeard by pro football standards, announced Tuesday he is also a grandfather.
Favre, 40, and his wife Deanna said on the signal-caller's official Web site that they have welcomed their new grandson, Parker Brett, into the world.
"Deanna and I are very proud and excited to welcome our new grandson Parker Brett to the Favre family," the Favres wrote. "Parker Brett was born on Friday, April 2, weighing 7 lbs. 7 oz and we're pleased to say that both Mom, Dad and Parker Brett are healthy and doing great."
ESPN reported that the child is the son of Favre's daughter Brittany.
