Former Georgia QB Matthew Stafford is a happy man. Likely a tired man, but a happy one nonetheless.
It’s safe to say that the Detroit Lions quarterback is operating on less than optimal sleep these days, as he and wife Kelly adjust to life with a couple of little bundles of joy.
Kelly made the announcement of the births of the couple’s twins on Monday in an Instagram post celebrating their first night out as parents. She indicated the babies were born on March 31 and are “happy and healthy.”
Back in January, Stafford told the Detroit Free-Press his wife had loaded him down with books to read in anticipation of the twins.
“I’m assuming it’s going to be a big change,” he said. “Not as many naps, which is disappointing.”
It’s safe to say that fatherhood may change the 29-year-old quarterback’s approach to life, as Kelly indicated in an interview with ESPN back in December.
“He’s turning into a little bit of a softy when it comes to the home life these days,” Kelly Stafford said. “You know, if I push on my belly too much, he’s like, ‘Stop. Stop.’ I’m like, ‘It’s OK, they’re fine. I’m just trying to move them around in there a little bit.
“I think it’ll definitely change him. I think it’ll change anyone. I’m excited to see him as a dad. I know he’s going to be awesome.”
There has been no public word on the babies’ names, weights, etc. to this point.
