Tiki Barber has revealed he and the 23-year-old former NBC intern he left his pregnant ex-wife for three years ago are expecting their first child together. The former New York Giants running back —who married one-time mistress Traci Johnson in a civil ceremony in a New York City Hall ceremony in July, eight days after his divorce to his wife of 11 years, Ginny, became final — boasted that he will be dad one more time.

Giants fans lustily booed the former star when Barber was inducted into the Giants' Ring of Honor in October 2010. Before his secret affair with Johnson became public, Barber was thought of as a committed family man, already the father of two sons and the expectant father of twin daughters. And last year he insulted New York's Jewish community by comparing the clandestine affair with Johnson conducted inside a friend's attic as akin to the harrowing tale of Anne Frank.
