Former football star turned broadcaster Tiki Barber is a married man — again!
Barber — who scandalously left his wife when she was pregnant with twins – announced via Twitter that he and Traci Lynn Johnson tied the knot Thursday in NYC.
“Many thanks to the NYC Clerk’s office, especially James Mitchell who married me to my love Traci Lynn Johnson!” he tweeted. “Excited for the next chapters . . .”
The former New York Giants standout also tweeted a photo of himself and Johnson, writing, “Now as my wife, Mrs. Traci Lynn Johnson!”
Meanwhile, Johnson tweeted a photo of their wedding rings, writing, “We’re married Tiki Barber!”
As RadarOnline.com has previously reported, Barber became a tabloid target when he dumped his wife of 11 years, Ginny Cha, in April of 2010 while she was expecting twins. Barber — who at the time was a contributor on the TODAY show — was reportedly having an affair with Johnson, who was 23 at the time. Adding to the scandal — Johnson was a former NBC intern who also babysat for Barber’s kids.
Barber later denied that he had a fling with Johnson while he was still married; in August, 2010, he told Entertainment Tonight: “We were only friends when I was still married. I was separated, out of my house so it wasn’t until then that we took things to the next level.”
Johnson added, “Tiki and I were romantically involved when he was separated, and plenty of people who are separated have boyfriends and girlfriends.”
Barker and Cha have two sons, A.J., 10, and Chason, 8; their twin daughters are now 2-years-old.
