Eli Manning may be able to start his own powderpuff team soon!

The New York Giants quarterback and wife Abby McGrew welcomed a baby girl yesterday and have named her Caroline Olivia, Manning's rep confirmed to Us Weekly.

Caroline joins big sisters Ava Frances, 3 1/2, and Lucy, 19 months, on the family lineup.

Eli, who when not playing football in front of millions of TV viewers and having his every move picked apart, leads a relatively quiet private life. The world didn't even get wind of Abby's pregnancy until yesterday, when the couple were spotted out in New York City before their daughter's birth, Eli's expectant missus sporting a visible baby bump underneath her winter coat.

In an interview with Parade last June, Manning talked about the family's Father's Day plans and shared some of his favorite everyday-daddyhood moments.

"When we have the whole family together, maybe bathtime when I have both kids in the bathtub and they start splashing each other and making each other laugh," the then father of two told the magazine. "That usually gives me my biggest smile—when I see both my girls interacting with each other."

"I think the perfect Father's Day would just be spending time with my family," he continued. "I'm hoping for a nice, sunny day where we can be outside and running around. I'm looking forward to eating all three meals with my family and just having lots of laughs. And I'm sure my wife has got something up her sleeve for us to do."

And yes, Eli and older brother Peyton Manningshare parenting tips.

"Peyton's got three-year-old twins, a girl and a boy, and we trade funny stories and we'll send each other funny pictures or videos of one doing something entertaining," Eli said." We don't only talk about football! We talk about things that go on in each other's lives and a lot of those stories now involve our kids."
