Colts quarterback Peyton Manning has reason to celebrate and it has nothing to do with football. Peyton and wife Ashley are now the proud parents of twins, one boy and one girl.
On March 31st in Indianapolis Ashley gave birth to son Marshall Williams Manning and daughter Mosley Thompson Manning. Mom, little Marshall and little Mosley are all reported to be doing just fine. These are the first children for the couple who married in 2001 after being introduced by friends of her parents.
The news that Ashley and Peyton are now parents comes as well quite a surprise. It seems the duo kept her pregnancy under wraps pretty darn good at the new moms request to maintain a private life despite her famous husbands career choice. I am guessing that means we probably won’t be seeing pictures of the kids anytime soon. I have a feeling Mrs. Manning isn’t going to sell her kids pics to the highest bidder if you know what I mean. Peyton’s younger brother Eli also recently welcomed his first child, a daughter Ava in March.
I tell you what the status of whether or not football is going to happen next year may be in question but life couldn’t be better for new dad Peyton. In fact he probably hasn’t had a lot of time to focus on his career with two newborns he is probably lucky if he is even sleeping right now. Anyone want to take bets that baby Marshall already has his first football and that the Manning football legacy will continue on? I am going to say yes to both of those.
A big congrats go out to Peyton Manning and his lovely wife on their recently expanded family with the addition of Marshall and Mosley. Glad to hear that everyone is doing just fine!
