Call him Grandpa Brett. Brett Favre has confirmed to ESPN's Ed Werder that his 21-year-old daughter, Brittany, has given birth to a son.
If Favre decides to return for a 20th season in the NFL, it would likely make the 40-year-old only active player who's also a grandfather. It's unknown whether other grandfathers have played in the NFL. Brittany named her son Parker Brett Favre. Favre told ESPN being a grandpa "almost makes me feel old", adding "It makes things more complicated but right now I'm not thinking much about football."
The Vikings have said they'll give Favre as much time as he needs to decide whether he'll come back next season.
