Giants quarterback Eli Manning has given fans playoff fever — and his wife Abby baby fever.

The college sweethearts, who have been married for 2½ years, will become parents in the spring.

“They are both so happy and excited. Eli is being very protective of Abby, as it is still early days,” a source told Page Six of the NY Post.

Eli, 29, and Abby, 26, who met in the spring of his junior year at Ole Miss, wed on a beach at the One&Only Palmilla in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico in April 2008.

In May last year, Eli and his wife were still basking in newlywed bliss but were beginning to think ahead.

“We’re enjoying being married right now,” Eli said at the time. “There’s no exact plan, but we do plan on starting a family in the future.”

The future is now! A spokesman for IMG, which represents Manning, declined to comment.
