Report: Peyton Manning, wife have twins

BY foxsports • April 8, 2011

Indianapolis Colts quarterback Peyton Manning welcomed twins just days after his younger brother, New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning, celebrated the birth of a baby girl, Radar Online reported Friday.

Peyton Manning, 35, and his notoriously private wife, Ashley, had kept the pregnancy a secret.

She gave birth to a girl and a boy, Mosley Thompson and Marshall Williams, March 31 in Indianapolis.

The couple has been together for 10 years, but these are their first children.

"It is true, it is happy news for them," a source told the celebrity website.

Manning's little brother celebrated the birth of his first child on March 21. He and his wife Abby welcomed a girl, Ava Frances, weighing 7 pounds, 4 ounces.

The younger Manning and his 26-year-old wife met while both were attending the University of Mississippi. They were married in April 2008.

Eli Manning, 30, who has played with the Giants since 2004, led Big Blue to a Super Bowl in 2008.
