Tiki Barber Finally Proposes To Young Blonde Blamed For Destroying His First Marriage

Since Tiki's attempts at joining an NFL team this season appear to have stalled, he's got more time to focus on other things in his life like finalizing his divorce from his wife Ginny and making an honest gal out of 24-year-old Traci Johnson, the former NBC intern who stole his heart two years ago.

Barber and Johnson went on a mini public relations blitz last year, hoping to convince America that they're more soul mates than playmates, even though most people didn't seem to really want to know how those two kids make their love grow.

Let's look back at the personal essay Traci penned for Crushable last year, where she attempted to set the record straight about their scandalous relationship:


Four months later we are still together and love each other more than before. We have our moments of discontent as any normal couple does, but for the most part we find happiness in each other and the simple pleasures of life. On an average night we find ourselves watching whatever we have rented from Netflix or enjoying an episode of Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman (yes, with or without Tiki's permission, I will admit that we own the entire collection). Instead of loud and pretentious clubs, you can find us at a cozy wine bar with friends or playing in a co-ed softball league. If any restaurant requires a three-course meal or more we refuse to go and end up eating at a local pub right around the corner from our apartment. We stay up too late for any sane couple reading books in bed and we enjoy knowing that even if we are boring, we would both rather be bored with each other than doing something with someone else.
