Breaking Pitter Patter News: The Gerrards Welcome Their Third Daughter

Steven Gerrard’s wife, Alex, has popped, Kickettes, giving the LFC captain a hat-trick of daughters. Around 4pm GMT today, Lourdes Gerrard arrived into this world at a hospital in Liverpool, presumably with her mini-me Alexander Wang bag in tow. This pretty-in-pink bundle of baby weighed in at  7lb 15oz, the midfielder’s spokesman said.

Stevie was there to help Alex through her delivery (we have no clue if it was au natural or via C) and both Mum and baby were said to be “doing well.” Three-a-day baths will do that to a woman post-labour, though.

Echoing the views expressed by their lawyers at Shillings via the e-blast we received last month, the couple has reiterated their desire for the media to respect “the privacy of their family at this time.” Mark our words: when the inevitable OK! family photo shoot at home is all said and done, their legal doc’s thinly-veiled posturing (complete with typos) will seem a bit rich to say the least.

Nonetheless, congrats to the Gerrards!

    I suppose we will have to wait for the magazine deals before we can see the pictures. Tacky…

    Lourdes? One of the fugliest names I've ever heard. Glad that both mum and baby are ok though…

    i thought she was having a boy? a boy who was going to be version 2.0 of his daddy in 20 years and come to liverpool's aid whenever we need? either way, can't wait to see her in the baby parade at the end of the season. maybe the girls will grow up to win trophies for liverpool's ladies' team?

    Hmmmm, guess I like Liverpudlina better than Lourdes, Liverpudlina would definitely be less chavy…

  5. Jen says:

    Congrats to the Gerrards!!! So exciting, and what a lovely hat trick they will make. Not keen on the name, but atleast it's different. I always get Lilly-Ella and Alexis mixed up. Congrats, and get well soon Stevie!!

  6. Agnes Wonka says:

    Lourdes is a very cool name! and it fits the surname Gerrard a lot :)

  7. Lady Bella says:

    Already? Why did I think she was 7 months along? Congrats to them.

  8. giggles says:

    Why would anyone be disappointed about the sex of a baby from a couple they don't even know? I find that so weird.

  9. Marina_Isabella says:

    Those shoes she's wearing on that pic look like pain! :S Anyway, congrats to the them!

    Congrats to the happy Family. However i am looking in my crastal ball and is seeing Alex trying to get preggers again for that little boy Steven G so dearly went. 4th time is the charm Alex!

  13. Lou says:

    Congrats to the Gerrards! I hope Stevie was seated with his let propped up throughout the birth.

  14. Zoraida says:

    Lourdes? Since they love the ''L'' names they could've named her Lavender… Anyway, she's a member of the Gerrard dynasty now, so as a true Liverpool fan I have to say that Im already in love with that cute little fairy!!

  15. Hot4Spurs says:

    Another Girl?!! Congrats to the whole family!

    • April says:

      Exactly my response… poor Stevie could use a little testosterone, I am sure! But he'll love this pumpkin as much as the others :)

  16. Lala says:

    I was also hoping for them to have a little boy but im sure baby lourdes is adorable! :) congrats to the Gerrards!

  17. FootyGirl says:

    Cant wait to see baby Lourdes at the end of season parade..

  18. kel says:

    I was hoping for a boy for them but I'm sure she'll be adorable.

    Lots of L names. Lourdes though? Not my favourite.

  19. Miss Lampard says:

    I'm happy for them, but it's a pity, I hoped that would have been a baby boy…A little Stevie G., and sorry but I don't like the name Lourdes, they could have done a better choice. However Congrats to Alex and Stevie!

  20. Maria V says:

    Yey!!! New Baby Gerrard!!
    They still gotta try for the boy, tho.
    We need a Stevie G Mini-Me!!

  21. Dave says:

    Mmmm…Lourdes reminds you too much of Madonna’s daughter, who is called Lourdes. Funny that. I’d have gone with Elsie myself – an underrated, underused name but reminds too much of cleaners. Hey ho, such is life!

  22. hadley says:

    I had hoped they would have a boy. Stevie needs a little boy to balance out all of his lovely girls! And I can't say I'm not a huge fan of Lourdes. There are so many other "L" names that are really beautiful. Lourdes reminds me too much of Madonna's daughter…

    • Kat22 says:

      Totally agree with you. Not a big fan of Lourdes at all. And I was hoping for a boy as well.

      That being said – a huge congrats! Hope Steve will be back on the pitch soon – he's spent far too much time injured lately. The Premier League and National Team need him!
