Brittany Favre, 21, gave birth to a son Parker Brett last week. NFL quarterback Brett Favre confirmed on his website today that he is a first-time grandfather.
Favre said, “Deanna and I are very proud to welcome Parker Brett to the Favre family. Parker Brett was born on Friday, April 2, weighing 7 lbs. 7 oz. and we’re pleased to say that Mom, Dad and Parker Brett are healthy and doing great.”
Deanna began dating Favre when she was a 14-year-old Mississippi school girl. She got pregnant at age 19 and gave birth to Brittany in February 1989. She went on to earn a college degree and then packed up her young daughter and moved to Green Bay to be with Favre. The couple eventually wed in 1996. They have another daughter, 10-year-old Breleigh. Check out a gallery of family photos here.
The veteran QB has not yet committed to playing a second year for the Minnesota Vikings. Coach Brad Childress and team owner Zygi Wilf have given 40-year-old Favre his space while he decides whether to hang it up or fulfill year two of his contract.
UPDATE: October 21, 2010: Deanna Favre discussed sexting scandal with Robin Roberts on Good Morning America.
