Originally written July 20, 2012 on The Other Paper:
Former New York Giant Tiki Barber scored a new wife after getting married to Traci Lynn Johnson at the  City Marriage Bureau in downtown Manhattan yesterday.

The former running back showed he still has a little speed left in his 38-year-old body and tied the knot with his 23-year-old former intern—  just eight days after his divorce was finalized.

Barber ditched his then-wife, Ginny, in 2010 for Johnson, a Maxim pinup girl and former intern at NBC, where he worked on the "Today" show.  His wife was eight-months pregnant with the couple's twins at the time.



The newlyweds said they planned to get married on May 12 in the Hamptons, but the divorce wasn't finalized and the wedding had to be postponed.

Barber was fired from the "Today" show and credits Johnson for getting him through a tough period of his life.

"I have a wonderful girlfriend who loves me and got me through the bad times," he said last year.

Thursday's "I dos" at the City Clerk's Office were attended by only the couple's closest friends and family, including his twin brother Ronde who is a defensive back with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

After the nuptials, Barber tweeted a photo of the couple with these sentiments: "Many thanks to the NYC Clerk's office, especially James Mitchell who married me to my love Traci Lynn."

Barber attempted an NFL comeback last season but didn't get a tryout with a single team.
