Robert Griffin III and wife Rebecca Liddicoat welcomed their first child, a daughter, into the world on Thursday and the quarterback celebrated in true RGIII fashion — he tweeted about it because that is just his way.

Named Reese Ann Griffin, the baby weighed in at 7 pounds, 9 ounces and within minutes of her birth on Thursday, was christened with her very own hashtag, #ReeseAnn. This replaces the baby’s previous hashtag, #BoyOrGirl, which Griffin added to his “we’re expecting” announcement in February.

Most importantly, it looks like mama and baby are healthy and happy and the new addition looks as sweet as hopefully a very successful upcoming Redskins season.

Congratulations to all.
