New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning will become a dad next year.
His wife, Abby, is expecting their first child! Sources say the couple is "so happy and excited." Eli married the former Abby McGrew, his college sweetheart, in 2008.
"Eli is being very protective of Abby, as it is still early days," says a source. "Very few people knew. Abby is only a few months along and isn't really showing."
Eli and Abby Manning are about to be parents!
In May of last year, Eli and Abby announced they would bankroll a new birthing center for natural childbirth and holistic care at St. Vincent's Hospital.
Manning said at the time, "We wanted to make it a special place to bring new life into the world." The signal-caller added, "We're enjoying being married right now."
"There's no exact plan, but we do plan on starting a family in the future."This past August, he gushed about Abby to the New York Post: "I think a marriage, if you get the right one, it definitely works well, 'cause you can stay focused on your job ... She's there to support me, and just try to lift the spirits."
"She is laid-back ... but she kinda knows when to get serious and when to be hard on me or keeps me in a straight line, which I like," Eli Manning said.
Congratulations to the expectant couple!
