After Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford and wife Kelly welcomed their first children into the world last March, twins Chandler and Sawyer, the couple announced via Instagram they are expecting a third child later this year.

"Well itโ€™s too tough to keep this secret any longer," Kelly wrote. "We thought we had a plan until I found out a few days before Christmas, that God had a different one. I enjoyed getting to surprise Matthew on Christmas morning with some news he was for sure not expecting. We are excited to announce that we will be adding another baby to the family!"

Kelly also noted the baby is due during training camp.

The couple, who met while both were attending the University of Georgia, were married in April 2015.
