Saints QB Drew Brees and his wife, Brittany welcomed their second child into the world Tuesday with the arrival of a baby boy.

And on Wednesday, the Brees family announced the baby's name via Twitter.

Posted Brees: "It's official. Brit finally gave in. Bowen Christopher Brees. Healthy, happy baby. Big hands, big feet. Brit is great. I am so proud!"

Brees, the MVP of Super Bowl XLIV, posted a message on Twitter earlier this month requesting ideas for uncommon boy names that begin with the letter B. He unexpectedly received a flood of replies.

Brees and his wife also have another young son, who famously wore giant earphones to protect his hearing during the on-field postgame celebration after the Saints defeated the Colts for the NFL title last February.
