Drew Brees' son, Baylen Brees, does not have autism. The rumors started during the Super Bowl in 2010, when Baylen was seen wearing protective ear covers during the post game celebration. The ear gear was used to block loud sounds which can be potentially damaging, especially to a toddler in an intensely noisy stadium.
Brees and his wife Brittany have two sons. She was pregnant with the second son, Bowen during the 2010 Super Bowl.
On October 7, 2012 Brees played his 48th consecutive game with a passing touchdown, breaking Johny Unitas' record of 52 years by one touchdown.
