Tiki Barber's estranged wife gave birth to his beautiful twin girls earlier this week -- and bitterly barred the cheating grid great from the delivery room, sources told The New York Post.
The retired Giants running back was forced to wait outside while Ginny gave birth at a New York hospital on Monday, insiders said.
The Post first revealed that the heartless Barber had dumped Ginny -- who was then eight months pregnant -- so he could hook up with 23-year-old blonde Traci Lynn Johnson.
"Tiki was at the hospital for the birth, but was not in the delivery room," an insider said
Barber, a correspondent for NBC's "Today" show, and his wife are still in acrimonious negotiations over money.
"Things with him and Ginny are still very difficult. He is still refusing to give her the settlement she is asking for, and is offering a lot less," a source said.
"They are still in court over money and over custody. He did see the baby girls after they were born, as Ginny understands he needs to be a huge part of their lives, and she wants to make sure they are taken care of."
Ginny's rep, Jesse Derris, confirmed the twins' births and that Tiki was nearby.
"I can confirm that Ginny gave birth on Monday, and Tiki was there at the hospital," Derris said last night.
"Ginny is grateful for the incredible outpouring of well-wishes from friends and family. Both her and the girls are doing fine."
Derris, however, declined to reveal the babies' names or the hospital where they were born, for privacy reasons.
The mom was still in the hospital last night, but was expected to be discharged today.
Barber, 35, had been married to his college sweetheart for 11 years before he callously opted to trade her in for the young blonde Johnson -- a former NBC intern.
Ginny filed for divorce, and Barber is seeking joint custody of all four children, including their two sons, A.J, 7, and Chason, 6.
Barber's spokeswoman, Tisha Kresler, declined comment, and said her client would not make any immediate statements about his twins' birth.
