"Good Morning America" anchor and former NFL New York Giants player Michael Strahan celebrated a significant career milestone this week as the team retired his No. 92 football jersey. 

During the ceremony, Strahan said he had never dreamed of his number retiring but was happy to be there. He added that his journey was not over, but his journey with the Giants uniform was finished.

The TV personality shared a collection of photos from the event on his Instagram, including pictures with his family, friends, and running on the field with the NY Giants players. 

Strahan also included a gorgeous photo with his twin daughters, Sophia and Isabella. In the snap, Strahan stood between his daughters, who wore matching blue puffer jackets and had their curly hair in the same style.

In the photo, the girls resembled their mother, Jean Muggli. Their parents divorced in 2006 after marrying in 1996. Unfortunately, the couple's divorce was publicized with rumors and allegations about their relationship making headlines. 

After the divorce, Strahan had to pay his ex-wife $15.3 million and $18,000 a month in child support. Despite the settlement, the former couple was back in court in 2020 fighting over child support.

The couple was also involved in a public custody battle over their daughters after Strahan allegedly accused Muggli of "physically and emotionally abusing" their children.

According to documents obtained by TMZ, Strahan asked the judge for primary custody of the girls and claimed his ex-wife had been engaging in a "pattern of abusive conduct" towards their children for years.

He also claimed Muggli prevented the girls from attending court-ordered therapy sessions and kept them from participating in their volleyball practices and equestrian events.

If Strahan had been awarded custody, the girls would have moved to his home in New York City. At the time, they were living with their mother in North Carolina.

However, the outlet reported that the claims were dismissed in New Hanover County District Court according to court papers filed. The parents decided on a shared custody agreement. 

It seems the family has been able to move on from the messy divorce and custody battle as Strahan regularly shares joyful moments and updates of the twins on his Instagram page. 

Earlier this year, he showed off Isabella's volleyball skills as he posted a video of his daughter showing her skills on the court. It seems she is following in her father's athletic footsteps.
