New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning and his wife Abby McGrew welcomed a little girl, Ava Frances, on Monday.

It's the first child for the couple, who were college sweethearts at Ole Miss and got married in 2008.

They have had babies on their mind for a while: in May of 2009, the pair funded a new birthing center for natural childbirth at St. Vincent's Hospital.

Manning said at the time, "We wanted to make it a special place to bring new life into the world."

Abby and Eli apparently bought another apartment in their home in New Jersey as a "baby wing" for Ava, who was born early (her due date was in April.)
