Giants quarterback Eli Manning and wife Abby are expecting their first child.
Eli, 29, and Abby, 26, who have been married for 2-and-a-half years, are expected to welcome their baby in the spring.
“They are both so happy and excited. Eli is being very protective of Abby, as it is still early days,” a source told the NY Post.
Eli and Abby had met in his junior year at Ole Miss and married in April 2008 on a beach in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.
Last May, Eli admitted they didn’t have a plan as newlyweds, but would like to start a family one day.
“We’re enjoying being married right now. There’s no exact plan, but we do plan on starting a family in the future,” Eli said at the time.
An IMG spokesman that represents Manning had no comment.
