Of course Tiki Barber’s wife is shocked and devastated! How would you feel if your husband was having an affair while you were pregnant with twins?

Former New York Giant and sometime Today Show host Tiki Barber left his pregnant-with-twins wife and mother of two, Ginny Barber, “devastated” when he walked out on their marriage in November 2009 to take up with college student Traci Lynn Johnson.

A source close to the family tells HollywoodLife.com “Ginny thought Tiki was a great guy. She trusted him completely.” Ginny and Tiki were together for “nearly two decades” said the pal, who tells us that Ginny “was totally taken aback. To find out that she had been betrayed, especially with the stress involved in expecting twins, was shocking.”

Tiki told his wife he was leaving her for Traci Lynn last November, but she had no idea that the alleged affair started before she got pregnant with their twins. “Ginny had no idea anything was going on until Tiki left her,” said the source. “She didn’t suspect anything, because their marriage was good and their marriage was healthy. They had two kids and they had two more on the way … things seemed fine.”

Even though Tiki “traveled a lot for work, she trusted him. When you’re [married to] somebody who travels and is gone a lot, there is a lot of trust involved.” For now, Ginny is going through the healing process. “She is with the kids, and she’s leaning hard on her friends and her mother,” said our source, who tells us that Ginny’s mom lives with the family. “She’s trying to be strong and keep a good attitude.”

Ginny, who gave up her career as a fashion publicist when she married Tiki, is “incredibly down-to-earth and kind, and very realistic.  She’s extremely level-headed.”  And just like Elin Nordegren and Sandra Bullock, “Ginny’s only concern right now is the kids.”
