First overall draft pick. Super Bowl MVP. Pro Bowl quarterback.

And now Eli Manning can add a new title to his resume: Father.

According to reports from ESPN, Eli and his wife Abby welcomed their first child, a daughter, to the world earlier this week. Ava Frances Manning weighed in at 7 pounds, 4 ounces. No word yet on what her 40 time was, and she decided not to throw at the Combine.

Eli doesn’t even have to ask for time off to spend a few days with the two women in his life. As a locked out NFL player, there are no voluntary workouts or training sessions or treatments for the players at the team’s headquarters. So for now, his life can be all about changing diapers, washing and folding pink onesies, and just relaxing.

Of course, knowing Eli, he was probably breaking down football film in between contractions.
