Becoming parents for the first time is one of the most monumental events in life! Don’t you agree?
What exciting news! New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning, 29, and his wife, Abby McGrew, 26, are soon-to-be parents. Abby is pregnant with the couple’s first child. “They are both so happy and excited,” a source tells the New York Post. “Eli is being very protective of Abby, as it is still early days. Very few people know because Abby is only a few months along and isn’t really showing yet.”
Eli met Abby the spring of his junior year of college at Ole Miss. The couple married at the One&Only Palmilla Resort in Los Cabos, Mexico, on April 19, 2008, and they live in Hoboken, NJ.
“I think a marriage, if you get the right one, it definitely works well, ’cause you can stay focused on your job,” says Eli. “She’s there to support me, and just try to lift the spirits.”
“In some ways, we have similar personalities, where she is laid-back,” Eli adds, “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.”
It sounds like Abby is going to make a great mom! We’re so excited for Eli and Abby to be welcoming a new bundle of joy into their home!
