Matthew Stafford and his wife Kelly are seeing double! The couple welcomed “healthy and happy” identical twin girls, Chandler and Sawyer, on March 31, 2017, according to Kelly’s Instagram.
While photos of the twins have yet to be shared, Kelly keeps her Instagram followers in anticipation with teaser photos.
Earlier this week, Matthew talked about being a first-time father.
People here that are mothers and fathers probably know what I’m talking about. It’s tough to describe. It’s an awesome feeling, just being a part of them and them being a part of you. But just, it’s been life-changing, obviously. Your world revolves around them, but it’s fun. Everybody tells you about it, what to expect this and that, but you have to experience it for yourself and everybody’s experience I’m sure is different. Twins is fun and a lot of work, but it’s cool to see, not only Kelly and myself’s connection with them, but their connection with each other’s pretty cool, too. They obviously were living together there for eight or nine months and formed a pretty cool bond. – Matthew Stafford on being a new dad.
Kelly posted the following intimate photo on Instagram on April 19th “Don’t worry, one day we will be able to tell them apart. #thankgoodnessforthepaintedtoenail ”
Despite long nights with two new babies, Stafford has been attending the Lions voluntary off-season conditioning. Head coach, Jim Caldwell, stated “He looks well rested. I didn’t know how that quite tied in together, (because of the) twins, late nights and he still looks well rested. Somebody’s got to be working in that house.”
Detroit Lions fans can rest easy as well. Matthew Stafford’s middle finger injury on his throwing hand that plagued him at the end of last season has seemed to have healed over the off-season. He did not require surgery for his injury. “Just needed rest.” He stated. “…been throwing with it for a month, month and a half now.”
Congratulations to the Stafford Family!
