When Joe Flacco declined an invite to the Pro Bowl, I thought for sure it was because he was far too elite for such a meaningless game. It turns out that wasn’t the case.

Tuesday night, Joe’s wife, Dana Flacco, gave birth to the couple’s third child, Francis Michael.

Frank weighs 9 pounds, 7 ounces.

It’s hard to believe that the Flaccos are already a family of five. It seems like just yesterday that I was blogging about their wedding registry.

How many more little Flaccos should we expect to see? Jamison Henlsey of ESPN.com speculates at least two more:

[quote_box_center]”I’d be satisfied with five,” Flacco said in November, giving a number that would match his No. 5 jersey. “Kids are a lot of fun. It would be cooler to have more, but if we got to five and that was it, I’d be cool with that. I’m satisfied now, but I want as many as I could have.”[/quote_box_center]

Congratulations Joe and Dana!
