The shocking news hit the media in early April that upstanding NBC correspondent and former NFL star Tiki Barber, 35, had done the unthinkable and left his wife of 11 years. But, that was only the tip of the iceberg. The story soon revealed the sordid details of a long-term love affair between Barber and a former NBC intern 23-year-old Tracy Lynn Johnson.
The split between Barber and his estranged wife Ginny late last year when Ginny was eight months pregnant with twins went virtually unreported until The New York Post broke the story of the affair, the split, the intern and the confirmation that estranged couple were also expecting twins on front cover.
On Monday, Ginny has given birth the twins girls and is in excellent health, reports the New York Daily News. Tiki was present for the birth and a rep for the couple says, “Ginny wishes to thank everyone across the city who has offered their best wishes. She is excited to welcome these new additions to the Barber Family.”
Twins and mom are expected to be home any day now. All the joys of birth sadly marred by infidelity, betrayal and their imminent divorce. Tiki and Ginny were married for 11 years and have two children two sons, A.J., 7, and Chason, 6.
Next on the Barber and Ginny agenda is the divorce which is said to entail Barber seeking joint custody of all four children and a well deserved hefty settlement to single mom of four Ginny. I don’t know about the latter as according to Ginny the adultery committing Barber is trying “low-ball her in the divorce settlement.” AFTER EVERYTHING… how low indeed.
Barber said when the divorce was announced, “This decision was a painful one, but we are moving forward amicably and will continue to work together to raise our children with the love and dedication they have always known.”
Well wishes to Ginny and her Twins! Congrats…
