Abby Manning, the wife of Eli Manning, has married one of the bigger names in the league, but she does seem to keep an air of humility. With the responsibilities of motherhood, women tend to cut out the unnecessary stuff. This is a fairly storied relationship, and Abby is a big name in the world of professional sports wives. Let's delve deeper in a classy and restrained lifestyles-of-the-rich-and-famous style, shall we?
Firstly, the big news for Eli Manning and wife Abby Manning came last year with the arrival of their second daughter, who they've named Lucy. I wonder if Eli was secretly pissed that he missed the train for having a son a second time. Sure, sure-- he acts all fulfilled, but you've gotta' know he wants an heir to the quarterbacking throne of greatness.
Abby has decorated their 3000 square foot condo in Hoboken with all kinds of goodies. By the way, I live a few miles from Hoboken just across the Hudson, and it's turned into one of the most expensive neighborhoods in the NYC area. For starters, the place is one of those Bill Gatesy-type joints. Everything's automated and controlled with a touch of a button. Speakers hidden in bookshelves, thermostats that sense who's in the room and adjust accordingly, courtesans of the night that fall from chutes when the wife and kids are away. No, that last one is untrue.
Apparently Eli's wife, the former Abby McGrew, is a devoted philanthropist whose many gifts have included money for St. Vincent's hospital to build a "holistic birthing center," often referred to as a "dome of pain" by the layperson. Abby and Eli have been together since college, so of course they make sizable contributions to the University of Mississippi. Giving money to any institution of learning in Mississippi automatically makes you a saint. Mississippi native John Grisham needs to include Eli and Abby in a football related courtroom bestseller just for that.
