Allen Park – Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford is a dad.

Wife Kelly Stafford posted a photo on Instagram Sunday noting that the couple’s twins were born at the end of last month.

“First night out as a mom and a dad,” Kelly wrote. “Our babies were born March 31st and are healthy and happy! Thanks for all the well wishes!”

Last October, Kelly used Instagram to announce she was pregnant. A month later, she revealed the couple were expecting twin girls.

The long-time couple met at the University of Georgia, where Matthew played quarterback and Kelly was a cheerleader. The two married in April 2015.
