how do you model noise figure contribution of a 3 port device

I've got a coupler in my receiver chain that I want to model with the 3 port S parameters that I've measured but I need to include the effect of the coupler on the noise figure of tthe system. If it were a 2 port passive loss  I'd just use |s21| for the noise figure and append it to the end of the s2p file like you're supposed to. But you cant include noise data in s3p files. So how do I model the noise of a passive lossy 3 port device like a coupler?
