No, I’m not making a poor play on words and calling Brett Favre an old guy.
Vikings quarterback Brett Favre, 40, is now officially a grandfather, according to multiple reports.
Favre’s 21-year-old daughter, Brittany, gave birth to a baby boy on Tuesday, thus making Favre a grandfather. Favre and girlfriend Deanna had Brittany in 1989 when Favre was 19 years old. The couple married in 1996 and had another daughter, Breleigh, in 1999 (notice yet another example of Favre’s gigantic ego here with these names: Brett, Brittany, Breleigh…I bet the new boy is named Bruce or Brad).
Favre, who will be 41 in October, has said he may not come back in 2010, but no one is buying his charade anymore. We all expect to see Grandpa Brett playing again this year after all that success last year.
While there’s no official word, it’s widely believed that Favre would be the first player/grandfather in NFL history.
