Kelly Stafford, wife of Matthew Stafford, announced on Instagram Sunday morning that she and Matthew are now mom and dad to a pair of healthy twins:
As a family that values their privacy, it should be no surprise that Matthew and Kelly managed to keep the news quiet for over a week.
Though Matthew is completely off the social media grid, his wife gave occasional look-ins on their months of preparation for parenthood. Whether it was Matthew trying to figure out how work a baby monitor:
Or the announcement of the twins to all of their friends and family:
Back in January, Matthew joined DetroitLions.com’s Tori Petry to express just how excited he was for fatherhood. “It’s going to be unbelievable,” Matthew said. “I’m excited, Kelly’s excited.”
However, there is one big downside Stafford sees in becoming a parent, as he told MLive’s Kyle Meinke:
Matthew Stafford on becoming a father: "I'm assuming it's going to be a big change. Not as many naps, which is disappointing."— Kyle Meinke (@kmeinke) January 9, 2017
Here’s to hoping Matthew finds some time to rest and relax in between being a father and a franchise quarterback. Congrats, Stafford family!
