Brett Favre confirms he's a grandpa

Shortly after reports surfaced that Minnesota Vikings quarterback Brett Favre would soon be a grandfather, Favre confirmed that he already is one.

A grandpa at 40,” Favre told ESPN’s Ed Werder. “It almost makes me feel old.”

Favre’s daughter, Brittany, recently gave birth to a son named Parker Brett.

Werder asked Favre whether becoming a grandpa would have any bearing on his plans for the 2010 football season.  Favre, as usual, wasn’t ready to make a commitment on that front.

“It makes things more complicated but right now I’m not thinking much about football,” Favre said.

    How old is the daughter? 16? Good to see some things never change in the deep South.

  2. AlanSaysYo says: Apr 6, 2010 1:08 PM

    Anxiously awaiting the deluge of PFT posts about every other NFL player becoming a grandparent, father, uncle, cousin, or brother.
    What? That would be completely irrelevent? You don’t say!

  3. Olbermanisadouche says: Apr 6, 2010 1:12 PM

    Congrats Brett…looking forward to seeing you in Purple again next season.

  4. Percy Nugz says: Apr 6, 2010 1:16 PM

    I wonder if Lane Kiffin has offered Parker a scholarship yet.

  5. shiftyshellshocked says: Apr 6, 2010 1:17 PM

    Drives you nuts doesn’t it. And i’m diehard purple and gold man.

  6. Skin_Flute says: Apr 6, 2010 1:17 PM

    “. . . but right now I’m not thinking much about football,” Favre said.
    Of course he’s not thinking about football. He’s thinking about little boys like he always is.

    Best wishes to mother and son — and grandpa!

  8. LBPACKFAN says: Apr 6, 2010 1:19 PM

    Following in mother Deanna’s footsteps…
    Congrats to the Favre family though.

  9. Cullen says: Apr 6, 2010 1:19 PM

    Yea how old is his daughter?

  10. Captainkansas says: Apr 6, 2010 1:19 PM

    Ed Werder is already trying to get an interview with the infant to see which team he is leaning toward.

  11. Mike Daly says: Apr 6, 2010 1:20 PM

    Brittney and her SO much have been watching those Tennessee Titans and Carolina Panthers films again – Tom Brady knows how horny a couple can get when the Titans and Panthers are on the schedule.

  12. Sportnman says: Apr 6, 2010 1:20 PM

    @Stone…cheap shot. What can you expect from an Eagles fan!

  13. Devils Advocate says: Apr 6, 2010 1:20 PM

    has the baby thrown it’s first interception yet?
    okay you dopey lord farve fans I am not talking about the grandpappy here chuckin another one

  14. Slack jawed Yokel says: Apr 6, 2010 1:21 PM

    …and who cares about this? Big deal, your daughter got knocked up at 16.

  15. Charles Wood says: Apr 6, 2010 1:22 PM

    Is he the father too? I hear they do that sort of thing down on the bayou… AND in Minnesota.

  16. TryTheVeal says: Apr 6, 2010 1:22 PM

    Does this mean if he plays next year, and the game is on TV, we will get to see his wife in the stands again, holding the newborn?…I simply cannot wait….

  17. MrHumble says: Apr 6, 2010 1:22 PM

    BF became a grandfather without saying a word about it himself…..but yet it was the media whores that bring it to our attention and now we will have to listen to all the damn redneck posts about BF wanting the attention or being a diva…..guess it only matters to people who have a brain as the rednecks aren’t ever gonna figure it out.

  18. InBBWeTrust says: Apr 6, 2010 1:23 PM

    Ok, can someone please tell me why it’s ok for Brett Favre to not have to participate in off-season activities but if Tom Brady doesn’t the world comes crashing down?
    I’m not trying to be a jerk I really want to know. Doesn’t he need practice as much as anyone? Are Vikings fans upset about this?

  19. Gaiterdan65 says: Apr 6, 2010 1:24 PM

    Damn, like father like daughter.
    He sired this one when he was 19, and she plopped one out at 21…
    Like the previous poster said, nothing changes in the deep south.
    If they weren’t so afraid of god (aka, spaghetti monster in the sky), these deep south hussey’s would throw on a rubber and leave the baby making for when they actually reach adult-hood.

  20. Buschman says: Apr 6, 2010 1:26 PM

    Brittany Favre is a MILF and now Deanna Favre is a GILF

  21. Popeye says: Apr 6, 2010 1:27 PM

    who is the father? Marshawn Lynch?
    another unwed teen mom? WTF? Be proud Brett!!!!!

  22. Swedish Mafia says: Apr 6, 2010 1:28 PM

    Brittney is 20 or 21….and very attractive :)

  23. scra22 says: Apr 6, 2010 1:30 PM

    Brittany was born in 1989 which makes her around 20 to 21. Ironically, Deanna Favre had Brittany at the age of 20, 7 years before she and Brett married. Weird.

  24. bonecity7 says: Apr 6, 2010 1:30 PM

    Year 2026…..Brett Favre becomes the first great-grandfather to play in the NFL!!!

  25. Skin_Flute says: Apr 6, 2010 1:30 PM

    Did he also confirm that he is a major douche?

  26. NoHomeTeam says: Apr 6, 2010 1:32 PM

    Stone says: “How old is the daughter? 16? Good to see some things never change in the deep South.”
    Hate to say it, but this is kind of the first place I went, too (except not quite so snarky). I thought his daughters were High-School age. Time flies, I guess.

    “It makes things more complicated but right now I’m not thinking much about football,” Favre said.
    Translation: Chilly and I already have a deal struck that I ride in on Ziggy’s private jet, Chilly picks me up in a white Escalade and carts my rear to the training facility. All the media is already lined up…oh, and I will do this after training camp is done. I think this is the best way to endear myself to the team.”
    Enjoy Vikings fans…everything was on a silver platter until…………..”why do you even ponder passing.”

    Here’s to Brett staying around long enough to complete a few passes to the kid in the NFL.

  33. hineswardcriesafterfumbling says: Apr 6, 2010 1:47 PM

    @gaiterdan65
    What age do you have to reach to be an adult? I thought the law said 18? There is a giant difference between a 20-21 year old having a child, and a 16 year old having one.
    I missed where God said “thou shalt go raw-dog every time”, maybe thats in the part with the spaghetti monster?
    Is a spiritual being really that much more incomprehensible than 2 random atoms running into each other and producing life? If the question is how did life being and the answer is two atoms running into each other, then the next question is, where did the atoms come from?

    I am not an Eagles fan. I am a Giants fan. Don’t know why you think low class cheap shots are the sole territory of Philly fans, but as a NY fan I am here to prove to you otherwise.

  36. Playoffs?! says: Apr 6, 2010 2:03 PM

    He’s coming back!! Its official! lol
    P.S. Brett, it wouldn’t be in your best interest to let A.P. hold the baby. Just sayin’…

  37. stetai says: Apr 6, 2010 2:09 PM

    She’s in her 20’s folks. As for Tom Brady somehow getting a raw media treatment, you are insane. As for if Brett needs practice (Pats fans clearly weren’t paying attention), Brett didn’t throw a football to a NFL player until late August and he played at an MVP level.
    However, fact checkers, would this make Brett Favre the first grandpa to start an NFL game? Or even play in one? I’ve never heard of that before.

  38. packfan4ever says: Apr 6, 2010 2:16 PM

    i heard levi johnston was the father

  39. Bubby Brister says: Apr 6, 2010 2:20 PM

    What’s wrong with having a baby at the age of 21 again?
    Maybe, MAYBE in normal circumstances it’s questionable (at worst), but the only possible card you can play in any situation like this is the “she’s not financially stable enough yet, finish college first, yada yada” and um… she’s Brett Favre’s daughter. And I’d imagine the guy Brett Favre’s daughter is pulling in is pretty well off himself. Just saying. Good for them.
    But this does make him look even older now… he isn’t just Grandpa Brett affectionately anymore…

    stetai…..So by your logic, Chris Johnson, Peyton Manning, Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers, Adrian Peterson, Phillip Rivers, Drew Brees, etc.etc. can all miss camp without any media/player/fan/organizational backlash? I highly doubt it.
    Try again….

    Stone- how old is the daughter? 16? Good to see some things never change in the deep South.
    I can tell you teen pregnancy is a larger problem in bigger cities of the north than it is in the south.
    You my friend are a douche bag. You are the definition of douche baggery.
    His daughter that is having the baby is 19 or 20. So until she proves other wise congrats to her. Besides her dad has millions should not be a problem.
    Southern boys dont walk out on responsibility quite as often as those wussies up north do.

  48. FLYBOY says: Apr 6, 2010 2:53 PM

    Ya’ll know now that in them there parts, it’s not uncommon for the grandpa and pa to be the same dude.

  49. Professor says: Apr 6, 2010 2:54 PM

    Come on guys, she wasn’t 16 when she got pregnant, she’s in her 20’s. Trust me, if she was still 16 I’d be all over that shit. Once they’re in their 20’s the muff already starts to look like Brett’s head of hair!
    Gigiddy!

    Why? To catch the next grandkid going in? In case you misread the blurb above, the child has already been evicted from Brittany’s uterus.

  67. sand0 says: Apr 6, 2010 4:23 PM

    Favre was 19 when he had his daughter and is 40 now. My Minnesota math says that she’d be about 21 and perhaps prego at 20 depending on the exact months.
    Just for the 50 posters freaking out over OMG she MUST be like 16 or younger!! So like the south to do that!!

    Congratulations to the Favre family. I’m sure he is a beautiful little baby and very much loved. I can’t believe the ugly, vile comments some of you have written on here. Let you who is without sin cast the first stone. I hope Brett plays again this coming season, I love him and his family. He is the greatest, love him or hate him. Even if you don’t like him, please don’t take it out on his family. That is an innocent little baby. I imagine a lot of you out there throwing stones have worse skeletons in your family closet. Please, keep your nasty comments to yourself.

  72. GregJenningsFanClub says: Apr 6, 2010 6:55 PM

    I heard they were trying to decide what to name the kid. Guess we’ll never know.

  73. GregJenningsFanClub says: Apr 6, 2010 7:00 PM

    Looks like they tried to name it Packer Brett, but Packer Nation wouldn’t allow it, so they made it close enough. Parker Brett, sounds like a name filled with regrets…

    Only a dipshit such as a Packer fan would even think of something like naming a kid Packer.
    How many poor teenagers of Packer fans are running sround with the name of Brett because thier moron parents named thier kid after a football player?
