NEW YORK (WFAN/AP) — Eli Manning is a daddy.

A friend of the family says the Giants quarterback’s wife, Abby, gave birth to a daughter on Monday.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity because the person is not authorized to speak for Eli or Abby Manning.

ESPN later reported that the Mannings named their daugher Ava, who weighed in at 7 pounds, 4 ounces.

Ava is the first child for Eli and Abby. While Peyton, the other famous quarterback brother, has not yet provided a grandchild for Archie and Olivia Manning, his brother, Cooper, was first on the scene with three children.

Neither Tom Condon, Manning’s agent, nor Archie Manning returned telephone calls seeking comment.
