Team Gleason signed a daughter today.

A family spokesperson told The New Orleans Advocate that Michel Gleason gave birth to a baby girl around 4:00 p.m. Tuesday. The couple announced they were expecting over the summer.

Former Saints player Steve Gleason has been confined to a wheelchair as the neuromuscular disease ALS has robbed him of most voluntary movement. Their spokeswoman last summer credited "modern medicine" for the pregnancy.

The baby girl's name has not been announced.
