(Newser) – Former New York Giant Tiki Barber not only dumped his wife for a 23-year-old—he dumped his 8-months-pregnant-with-twins wife for a 23-year-old. “After 11 years of marriage, Ginny and I have decided to separate,” Barber said yesterday, after sources told the New York Post about the affair. The Today show correspondent met Traci Lynn Johnson when he was hired by NBC in 2007; she was an intern there at the time.

Ginny, who has two sons with Barber, learned of the affair late last year when he moved out. Johnson was photographed with Barber at his documentary screening last month; sources believe she was with him during filming of it in Senegal, while his wife was three months pregnant, and she may have also been with him at the Winter Olympics.
