Tiki Barber’s 23-year-old girlfriend convinced her family she was baby-sitting for the ex-Giants star as their romance heated up and his marriage fell apart. Blond beauty Traci Johnson’s father and aunt both believed the former NBC intern was helping out – instead of hooking up with – the three-time All-Pro and father of two. “That’s what [her dad] Ernest told me,” said Johnson family neighbor Bob Drabik.
Johnson’s aunt, who lives near her small hometown of Pine Bush in upstate Orange County, confirmed that family members believed the stunner was taking care of Barber’s children. But a source close to the Barbers called the baby-sitting tale “100% categorically untrue.” What’s not disputed is that Barber – who turned 35 Wednesday – split from his eight months pregnant wife after 11 years in a move that came out of the Big Blue. The elusive running back spoke often about his dedication to family, particularly because his own father abandoned the Barbers when Tiki and his twin, Ronde, were just 4. But Barber had clearly found a constant companion in Johnson, a former honors student at a small Catholic college overlooking the Hudson River.
