"It feels good," Brady, 35, told the Boston Herald of the latest addition to his family. "Whatever we would have had, I would have been happy. We've got two beautiful boys, now a girl. It's great."
This is the third child for Brady, who has a 2-year-old son, Benjamin, with his supermodel wife, and a 5-year-old son, John, with actress Bridget Moynahan. Ben turned three on Saturday.
The New England Patriots QB assured the local newspaper that his wife and daughter were happy and healthy, adding that his little girl is "going to be an athlete."
Bundchen, 32, confirmed on her Facebook page Friday that she and Brady welcomed their second child together on Wednesday night. "We feel so lucky to have been able to experience the miracle of birth once again and are forever grateful for the opportunity to be the parents of another little angel," she said of her newborn.
