Ellen: Drew Brees New Orleans Charity Work
NFL New Orleans Saints Quarterback Drew Brees is no stranger to New Orleans native Ellen DeGeneres. The two are good friends, and they even recently co-hosted a charity event in Louisiana for Brad Pitt’s Make It Right Foundation.
“At one point, you were just going to take your clothes off,” Ellen said about the fundraiser.
Drew Brees said he would go to any lengths to raise money for charity. Together, Ellen and Drew helped the charity raise over $5 million. That is sufficiently impressive.

Finally, he took a bite of the cupcake and found blue frosting inside. The couple is expecting a third boy, despite the indications it would be a girl.
Ellen: Drew Brees Son Learns Spanish
Drew Brees young son Bowen is learning Spanish using a DVD video. There is a song from the video that teaches counting, and Drew and Brittany have learned they can use this Spanish counting song to distract Bowen or get his attention, no matter what he is doing.
However, another segment of the video that tries to teach the words for head and hat usually ends up with Bowen smearing food in his hair.
