Bubbas, Ballers & Bumping Uglies: A Germany Special

We all fantasise about it on an hourly basis, but isn’t it great to be able to confirm that all is well in the world of footballer fecundity?

Yes, for those of you still suffering agony spasms caused by the dearth of Leo Torres photos (why, Fernando, why?!)  to follow is a quickie round up of the happy events befalling some of  the finest footie players from or playing on German soil, whether they’re bringing up baby, awaiting the arrival of the stork or simply getting in some practice.

Ovaries at the ready, ladies.

Pictured above while nestling comfortably into the bosom of German national handball player and Per Mertesacker’s missus Ulrike Stange, is a baby that may or may not be the couple’s brand new son. Ulrike gave birth on Easter Sunday to the 4.2 kilo, 22 inch long bubba and although our fact finding might be shaky on this one, surely we all agree that it’s great news for the happy couple. And if it is young Paul, he is obviously revelling in the knowledge that he may well be the most boxfresh bubba we’ve had the pleasure of featuring (or not) on these pages. Sigh.


The next man bracing himself for midnight nappy changes is Bayern Munich midfielder Franck Ribery, whose wife Wahiba is currently preggo with the couple’s third child. Franck has revealed that the bundle is a little boy, a brother for daughters Hiziya (5) and Shahinez (3).

Congrats to the Ribery family! We’ve got the baby shower gift in the bag!


Finally, it has been reported in German newspaper Bild, that Sami Khedira has been ‘seeing’ Germany’s Next Top Model winner Lena Gercke. The two were photographed in a German restaurant playing kissy kissy and drinking Prosecco and while it always breaks our hearts a little to see a ‘baller off the market, we can’t help but congratulate Sami. His new lady love is gorgeous (left) and clearly likes drinking. A girl after our own hearts, sigh.

BTW, does this mean that Mesut Ozil must learn to cook now?

    I know Iniesta is not a big man (physically speaking) but the bubba he's holding is SUPER TINY even for a baby!!!! LOL!! Had the baby just popped out mommy when these photos were taken?
    Congrats to all the new parents!! And as Coco said, can't wait for vacations to begin so we can (hopefully) see baby Leo!!! Ah! And like Kickette said, Lena is already on my fave WAG list since she does enjoy her drinks!!! :)

  3. Iniesta with his little Valeria, Can't see much of her, but ballers and babies are the cutest!…

      Don't worry. Summer is coming soon and the spanish paps will hound them in Galicia, Madrid or wherever they go for vacation and we WILL see this kid!

    Now this is a post to let our ovaries explode! I'm so happy for the Mertesacker family as well as for Franck. But I have to admit I'm a bit disappointed to see Sami with a new girl *sigh* But I'll survive. Somehow. Or maybe I'll just drink it away…
    Oh but one little thing: The baby in the picture above isn't Paul, it's an older picture that was on the internet before Paul was born!
