Eli Manning, a dear NFL player and his lovely wife Abby announced they were expecting their first child last October, the news made all of us very happy, and expectation grew as time went by, was a little quarterback growing in Abby’s tummy or a beautiful fashion designer like mommy?
Little Ava Frances was born on Monday March 21st, she weighed 7 pounds, 4 ounces and perfectly healthy. The news was confirmed by ESPN’s Chris Mortensen who went to his Twitter to reveal the glorious news.
The love story of Eli and Abby started when he was at Ole Miss, they got engaged in 2007 and got married on April 19, 2008 at the One&Only Palmilla in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico where they also spent their honeymoon. He was 27 and she was 24. While he got busy playing football Abby studied fashion in the Big Apple.
The news about them expecting a baby hit us in the last week of October, the soon to be parents were ecstatic and we certainly felt overjoyed! The birth was announced to be sometime in the spring.
“They are both so happy and excited. Eli is being very protective of Abby, as it is still in the early days. Very few people know because Abby is only a few months along and isn’t really showing yet.”
Little Ava Frances came to her parents’ life a few weeks early, her birth was expected in April. The Mannings reside between their home in Hoboken and Oxford, Mississippi.
From all of us at Rightfielders, we want to send our warm wishes to Eli, Abby and happy birthday to Ava Frances. Would you like to send them a message? You can do that in the comments box below.
