Alex Gerrard: Sending Mixed Pram Messages

Kickettes, do you recall the veiled threat we (and many, many other members of the media) received from legal firm, Schillings, on behalf of their clients, the Gerrards, requesting privacy from the paps whilst out with their kids?

If not, read about it here.

Well recently, and as we rightly predicted, Lourdes made her grand entrance into the public world via the same pages that pay Alex for her brainless ramblings, which OK! magazine considers to be “columns.”

We felt the need to remind you of these previous tales due to the odd and slightly amusing story gleaned from Popbitch early this morning.

“It was something of a surprise to get a press release this week showing photos of a beaming Alex out and about pushing her daughter, Lourdes, around in a very particular (and noticeable) make of pram (one she’s already plugged quite nicely in her OK! column).

Keen to protect her family’s privacy as she is, it seems strange that Mrs Gerrard should smile so pleasantly for the (presumably paparazzo) photographer. And if she wasn’t happy about it all, presumably the photos wouldn’t have found their way on to the pages of the magazine that employs her, OK!”

We saw those photos on OK! online earlier this week as well and thought about how weird it was that they were not available on any number of the photo agency sites that we subscribe to.

Surely Alex will come up with some type of response to explain this coincidence, because surely she wouldn’t subject herself and her “reputation” to some shameless product shill.

    IA with everyone about loving Stevie but disapproving of his choice in WAG.

    is it just me or do a lot of footballers actually have low standards?

    Ahaha people Alex doesn’t actually write her column a writer at OK! does. No column person in any mag actually write their own column. They have a phone convo with the writer and then they print it.

    People are quick to judge. Ok it’s not something I would do but she’s not hurting anyone if only the worlds problem was that photos of Alex isn’t on every picture agency then it’s be a better world wouldn’t it.

    I like her casual look it suits her as I’m only 5ft it’d look completely different on me but. Her tall slender figure is perfect for it

    I love her scarf

    size of a pea I mean. Damn this keyboard lol

  7. elsebethynwa says:

    I can't stand her either. I love Stevie G. He's an amazing player and captain but I can't hep judging him on his choice of wife. She has nice fake boobs and the brain the ize of a pea, is that the criteria for becoming a WAG these days? Wonder what will become of her kids when they grow up? You think she will teach them to jut go out finding a man who can support them and never achieve anything for yourself?

    i wonder if the baby really is in that pram…

  9. Melaniee. says:

    i find this woman insufferable.
    i bet she's nice but she needs to stop this.
    i keep reading her columns
    and her grammar and sentence structure angers me.
    how she is a fashion journalist is beyond me.
    her claim to fame is marrying a soccer player.

  10. Jen says:

    brainless ramblings indeed. Her column has no point, and is just sentences thrown together on the page. I feel sorry for Stevie, but he must love her to put up with her!

  11. TazFCB says:

    i don't like being mean about any of the wags on here but seriously, this one and her "column" and "omg wow i'm SO surprised its the paparazzi" pictures make it very hard to keep quiet sometimes.

  12. Alone- Brazil says:

    is difficult but this woman will never dress in a decent, as corny and cheesy always poorly dressed and poorly dressed! I do not stand

  13. katie says:

    I hate when people in the public do things like this. So you're perfectly fine exploiting your new child when it benefits you. Well done. At least when the Rooneys got angry about photos of Kai in the papers, it didn't come after they had a photo shoot showing him off. Unless I'm forgetting one. To me Alex is the perfect definition of what every WAG doesn't want to be considered as.

  14. kel says:

    Looks like she has a special deal with OK to give them her pics

  15. shiv21 says:

    most annoying WAG ever !

  16. Annika says:

    To be quite honest, my 11 yeard old brother is a better writer than Alex.

  17. linvinnaar says:

    I love Steven, but not his wife. Glad you guys put Alex and "brainless ramblings" in the same sentence, because it makes sense.
