New York Giants quarterback, Eli Manning, and his wife, Abby McGrew, welcomed a baby daughter on Monday.

Ava Frances Manning arrived early (she wasn't due until April) weighing 7 lbs, 4, oz.

At a Super Bowl event in Dallas on February 4, Eli said "I'm just excited for the whole experience and ready to be a dad."

Ava Frances is the first child for the couple, college sweethearts who married in April 2008.

Eli and Abby were busy over the past few weeks at their home in Oxford, Miss, preparing for the arrival of their daughter.

During football season, the couple live in Hoboken, and recently "bought another apartment on their floor in order to expand it into the baby wing," a source tells Page Six.

Congratulations to the new parents.
