NFL quarterback Peyton Manning and wife welcome twins

The sport star and his wife have always made an effort to keep their private life out of the limelight, and they managed to do a good job of it too, with a lid being kept on her pregnancy until just a few weeks ago. Even the news of the birth of their twins on 31 March was kept hush hush for several days.

The first-time parents — married for ten years — have a double bundle of joy to add to their family, although they have yet to confirm the birth of their daughter and son. “We value our privacy and would appreciate you not putting this in the paper or online,” Ashley Manning, 31, wrote in an email to The Indianapolis Star.

A source close to the new parents, however, didn’t hold back and told Radar online: “It is true, it is happy news for them.” According to several websites the tiny tots have been named Marshall Williams Manning and Mosley Thompson Manning.

Things are set to continue looking up for the 2007 Super Bowl winner: In addition to becoming a father, 35-year-old Peyton will most likely soon be adding Hall of Famer to his impressive sporting resume.
