The couples gets past scandal to welcome their first child.
Former NFL star Tiki Barber has officially begun a new chapter with his wife of 18-months, Traci Lynn Johnson. This past Friday, the two welcomed the birth of their daughter, Brooklyn.
Barber, who was a correspondent for Today in 2010, has four children by his first wife, Ginny Cha. However, he made scandalous headlines when he allegedly left Cha while she was eight months pregnant with twins and hooked up with Johnson, who was an NBC intern.
Although the couple insisted they didn’t become romantically involved until Barber and Cha were separated, some news reports claimed that the two had been seeing each other since 2008. Moreover, their denial wasn’t enough to stem the fallout. Shortly after news of Barber seeing Johnson broke, he was relieved of hosting duties on Today.
Barber is currently a host with CBS Sports Radio.
