Bubbas and Ballers: Xabi, Jon


Girdle your loins and quell those jumping ovaries, Kickettes, it’s Xabi Alonso with his baby boy, Jon. 

If there’s one thing, anything at all that can be appreciated about the end of the season and the loss of all the man-action, it’s the bubba parade at all the home games.

  4. Pavi says:

    I think I just died and went to heaven because this is just the most adorable pic.  Xabi and Nagore’s baby is just sooooo cute.  And I love the Liverpool shirt…hopefully in the future we’ll be seeing him on the pitch.

  5. MrsMichaelOwen says:

    Kuyts children are caled Noelle and Roan by the way (one daughter and one son if still puzzled)

  6. MrsMichaelOwen says:

    Omg soo gawjus lil bubba!

  7. Laura Dagger says:

    I was watchin LFC now yesterday and they showed a bit more of the lap of honour than sky. Xabi gave Jon a little kiss on the top of the head and looked dead proud, i think i melted a bit…

  8. Aoife says:

    Cutest baller baby ever! Look at that pudge! And his grumpy face. Little cutie!

    I do think Kuyt’s little boy is adorable too. And Masch’s little girl.

    Nando holding the umbrella for Pepe and his baba was v sweet. Wonder when the first Baba Torres will be here?

  9. Dani,,PLQ,,Mrs Niko says:

    i actually love that pic x

  10. louisquatorze says:

    Did any of the Arsenal boys show off their kids? I know, I know, they’re children themselves, but several of them have little ones that we never seem to see. (Lehmann’s little girl has to be walking age by now…)

  11. StevieXabiLuv says:

    How cute is Xabi? I can’t believe this is the first pic of his baby…how long have we waited??? So cute. So sweet. He has that sweet Daddy love going on…hope Xabs is still here next season. Hate, hate, hate the rumors that are heating up again. Hope he stays.

  12. April says:

    I’m still in denial.

  13. Anja (Miss Red) says:

    aawwwww, what a cute little baby that is!!! makes me wanna have my own! and daddy must definetely be a baller or else… :D

  14. DC says:



    and Xabi will not leave. Rafa said he doesn’t want him to go and Xabi doesn’t want to go. =]

  15. Johnna says:

    I just want Chelsea’s game next weekend to go ahead and happen so I can see the twins again. And Luna, for she is too adorable for words. And maybe Toni too, if we are lucky akjshakjhsa I love the end of the season!

  16. argh says:

    To be honest, in my opinion, most babies are dreadfully ugly. But Alonso’s kid is actually quite cute with his grumpy little face.

    I sincerely hope that this isn’t a sign that I might be turning soft and that I am about to start thinking that babies are a nice thing. That would be bloody awful! But if it does happen, I blame this one.

  17. dani,,Premier League says:

    dont we all MrsX dont we all x

  18. dani,,Premier League says:

    Mascheranos daughter is actually adorable considering x

    and that is actually so sweet of nando x he just gone up in my estimations even more x

  19. MrsXabiAlonso says:

    I read today that Juventus want Xabi. That made me feel better as I think if he was going to leave it would be for Spain. So while no Spanish clubs are bidding, hopefully he’ll stay.

    I also don’t think missing the game for his baby’s birth will effect any decision either. I’m just gutted and hate the stupid fag hag whore for taking him away!!!

  20. Tera says:

    same expression!!!

    *tries the sexy frown*

  21. Laura Dagger says:

    ooo deanna thats scary

  22. Laura Dagger says:

    I dont know how to do just the pic sorry dani but its on this page… he’s in the background though. how cute is Lola Mascherano btw?

  23. Deanna says:

    Dani, you can see it in the background in one of the pics on this page-…

    It’s the large pic with Mascherano, and Rafa and all the boys.

  24. dani,,Premier League says:

    can someone please repost the pic of nando and the umbrella for pepes kid because i havent seen i and i really want to x

  25. Vlada says:

    awwww, I love seeing fathers with their babies.

  26. Deanna says:

    Oh, MrsXA, I don’t think that would be the reason why he’s leaving! I’ve heard rumours about the fact that Nagore wants their child to be brought up in Spain, but until I hear it from his mouth, I refuse to believe it.

    And even Rafa smiled the other day when they asked him about Xabi’s baby, after the Inter Milan game. I doubt he’d hold such a small thing against him!

  27. MrsXabiAlonso says:

    Yeah he was willing to risk his place in the team. And now he might be leaving. Real smart. <img src="; width="19" height="19" alt="downer" style="border:0;" />

    I’m sorry, I know it was the birth of his first child, I just don’t want him to go *cries*

  28. linz says:

    all i have to say is:

    that’s sexy….‘nough said!!

  29. Deanna says:

    Emily, you’re absolutely right! I was incredibly proud of Xabi that day, thay he was willing to place his position in the team on line to be with Nagore in that special moment. The birth of a child isn’t something that happens everyday. I can’t believe the kind of fuss the media made about it, thankfully, it’s all died down now.

    But I think that if the daddy isn’t going to be at home most days, then aren’t they missing such a huge part of their child’s lives? Although, I suppose that’s always going to be a problem, cause most footballers play till they are 34-35. I suppose they can’t wait that long to have kids.

  30. carly says:

    oh so petite…:)

    Really, what is going on around here? Why are you doing this to us Kickette? My hormones are jumping up and down and not for the usual reasons. They’re getting all maternal.

    security code: help76 LOL Totally!

  31. Emily says:

    TFO, Matt Derbyshire looks frickin’ adorable with his kidlets!

    Ladies, I said it in an earlier post, but again, Xabi looks so cute, and though I don’t like babies or kids of any kind, Jon is kinda sweet.

    As much as I agree with Deanna that so many of these ballers are too young to be settling down and having children, it’s nice to see that some professional athletes are proud of their kids and are willing to be present in their lives—like Xabi missing that match for Jon’s birth.  I would’ve been appalled if he’d chosen to skip the birth in favour of the match.  Football is important, yes, and it is obviously a huge part of their lives for at least a couple of decades, but children are for the rest of your life.  Nice to see that some ballers have realised that football is just one of many priorities in life.

  32. cheryl_xxx says:

    awww squigiggle!!!!
    aren’t you adorable???????????????

    the baby’s cute tooo!!!!!!!

  33. carly says:

    Carra’s daughter is beautiful!
    And Dirk Kuyt’s kids …aww <img src="; width="19" height="19" alt="smile" style="border:0;" />

    Something is seriously wrong with me, teary-eyed over Liverpool’s kids!!!!  <img src="; width="19" height="19" alt="shock" style="border:0;" />

  34. Deanna says:

    Laura Dagger, that was so cute of Stevie! Wish there was a pic! And wish he had got his girls, they are really gorgeous. Would have looked totally adorable with little Jon!

    The Fourth Official, Matt’s twins are too adorable for words! But I can’t believe he carried both of them all around the ground, his arms must have been aching! And doesn’t he look too young to have twins? I wonder how these guys want to get married and have kids at such a young age! If you’re earning insane amounts of money, you should enjoy yourself first.

  35. Pippa says:

    torres with pepe’s bubba*
    wow, if only it was torres and pepe’s, that would make a story, lol.

  36. pippa says:

    anyone got any pictures of torres and pepe’s bubba?

    and as for baby alonso, he is way cute, he’s so chubbyyy!

  37. Danika says:

    I have to say that is not the best picture of the kid but he is cute, looks like a little Buddha.
    And he is probably thinking way the heck is father interupted his nap….for a walk in the rain and people screeming, he has a confused face.

  38. Anja says:

    Kuyt’s baby is cute (surprisingly) smile

  39. MrsS-Gewward-x [FoOt says: disappointed MXA..u feelin alright? lol

    security code-night96

  40. MrsXabiAlonso says:

    And the Matt Derbyshire picture is real sweet, bet he’s arms were aching by the end of the parade though.

  41. MrsXabiAlonso says:

    The picture is cute. Xabi holding the brolly is cute. Xabi himself is more than cute. But the baby? Not so cute. Sorry I just don’t like babies and this one is no exception.

    But Xabi looks adorable <img src="; width="19" height="19" alt="smile" style="border:0;" />

    Bet my reaction has dissapointed some of you, but I just can’t feel the bubba love.

  42. MrsS-Gewward-x [FoOt says:

    Thnx Dagger..Awww..I was really looking forward to see his daughters..never mind there’s always a next time!

  43. Riise's girl says:

    Omg that is the cutest baby I think Ive ever seen!! But when his dad looks like that then why wouldnt he be cute!!!!

  44. Laura Dagger says:

    Mrs S- No Lily-Ella and Lexie weren’t there. it was pouring down though, they might not have wanted to come out i suppose.

  45. MrsS-Gewward-x [FoOt says:

    Xabii pleasee dont go! well b left with voronin to admire **shivers**

  46. dani,,Premier League Queen,,MrsSteveFinnan says:

    MrsX hasnt been on this thread yet

    Xabi please stay we dont want you to leave x

  47. MrsS-Gewward-x [FoOt says:

    Awwwwrr Blesh..x The babiis sooo blessd..wherez be proud!! by the any of u girls know if stevie g brought his two kids??

  48. dani,,Premier League says:

    awwww he is so cute x
    and so is the baby x lol

    love this pic ,,

  49. Laura Dagger says:

    Adorable! When Xabi was stood in the corner by where i was sat, Stevie walked back the way he’d just come from to peek under the umbrella and have a look at the baby, he was smiling at him and talking to him i think. cuuute.

  50. Filthygorgeous says:

    Awwww! So gorgeous! Congrats to Xabi & Nagore on such a beautiful l’il boy!  I’m not just saying that either. I have seen some babies who are umm, to put it politely, less gifted in the cuteness department, so I don’t hand out compliments for the sake of it! lol.
    As for this pic…I’m all clucky as it is! My boyfriend can hear me cooing over the baby pic and wonders if this website is something I should not look at too often! LOL.

  51. Portia says:

    awww he’s so cute! he looks like Elmer Fudd!

  52. How adorable! Little Buddha bubba. 

    Who was it I saw in the Daily Mail this weekend, with twin babes in arms?  Can’t recall now, but it was darling.  I’ll see if I can find the pic.

  53. Avenath says:

    Malin, i agree with you…Fern is so wrong in so many ways…it is an absolute injustice to call a deadly striker by a plant name…Fernando or Torres or Nando…only these 3 should count…

    Security word: hot31…oh yeah, he’s hot all right?!…sorry, Malin…just can’t help myself <img src="; width="19" height="19" alt="tongue rolleye" style="border:0;" />

  54. LucyLu says:

    Aww this picture *is* cute. Xabi is hot. The baby is, like I said in the last thread, ok but squishy looking, like babies are. I’m sure he’ll be a lot cuter in a couple of years time when the Xabiness starts to show.

    Malin, don’t feel bad. Fern is a girl’s name anyway and makes me think of a couple of annoying English TV presenters. I’m still referring to him as Nando. My friend’s dad was called Fernando and as far as I know, he was just called Fernando by everyone. I could find out though!

    Security word – called!

  55. Pau says:

    que hombre tan lindo!!
    you understand me, right Xavi??
    <img src="; width="19" height="19" alt="tongue wink" style="border:0;" />

  56. anni says:

    i think it’s just you… i don’t think Jon looks like Stevie :D

    Jon is such a cutiepie with the chubby cheeks and grumpy face :D

  57. MrsXabiAlonso says:

    OK the look on Xabi’s face there in Laura’s link
    ? WOW. So proud. I am not a baby person, but seeing him all fatherly is very touching <img src="; width="19" height="19" alt="smile" style="border:0;" />

  58. no apol? says:

    is it just me?

  59. justlikexabi says:

    is it just me or….

    Jon is really cute just like his dad, but
    he looks like Gerrard, no?

  60. Of course I do, I almost died with pride over him, I can’t believe that amazing form he is in, he never played like this back in Atl

  61. Deanna says:

    I felt like that yesterday when I was more interested in seeing Xabi’s baby, than in watching the game! It’s all right, we can be as fangirlish as we like as long as at the end of the day we support our team too.

  62. I feel like an average crazy fangirl actually, and that has never happened before… So stupid.

  63. Deanna says:

    Fern just makes me think of a plant! But it’s his name, they can call him whatever they want. And as long as he continues to score beautiful goals, I guess we can’t complain too much.

    But I’m sorry for you, honey. *hugs*

  64. I’m heartbroken.

  65. Deanna says:

    Malin, Fern? Do they call him that now? I agree, Nando is so much better!

  66. Deanna says:

    *sighs* The guys not even a year old, and I’m already a fan! Jon Alonso, by the time you grow up and start playing football, you’ll be even more famous than your Daddy!

    He’s so adorable, and Xabi looks so proud! I want both of them!

    Btw, Nando was so cute, holding the umbrella for Pepe’s baby! Way to go to win even more hearts, if you don’t have your own little baby, stand near someone who does! Not that he needs to.

  67. Amanda says:

    *is dead*

    Babi Alonso!

  68. LucyLu says:

    I thought the cutest kid was Carragher’s oldest – I like children, just not babies!

  69. Genevieve says:

    Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww that’s adorable!!!!!!!! What a little cutie….

  70. Awwww holy sweet cutsiepie with sparkly baby-blue ribbons on it! I want one of of those! Now! Preferably with Nando!

    Oh. No, now I got all sad. My entire world image is ruined. Nando is apparently Fern. Boho. He was always Nando in Spain… No, I’m off crying now.

  71. Laura Dagger says:

    I dont think Xabi is going, he has said he is staying and there is nothing to suggest otherwise from the club. Its just the press hyping it up because Barry might sign but rafa always says we need a few players for each position and Barry can play left back too! Its just the press (i hope), same as when Xabi stayed behind for the birth. Rafa only said they couldn’t wait which was true, he needed to work with his available squad for the match)and he press made it into a big deal. Rafa even said he’s gonna sign jon up, maybe thats what he’s doing here

  72. dani,,Premier League says:

    on the link with the pictures go to page 103 the pc with rafa Xabi and jon is soooo cute x

  73. Laura Dagger says:

    Yeah we might Deanna, either that or we’re LFC obsessed kickette addicts?… Nah that doesn’t sound right, we must be telepathic, woo!

  74. Deanna says:

    LOL, Laura, that is scary! It’s like the second time it’s happened! Maybe we have a telepathic connection?

  75. Avenath says:

    What a cute little thing?!…the baby, i mean…and all decked out in a Liverpool jersey…bless him…saw Xabi walking around the pitch happily taking pictures with fans…have never seen him happier than showing off his little one…again, the baby..

  76. tammyv says:

    Cute babies + hot baller daddies = perfect world.

    I love them!!

  77. Gigi Neville-Brown says:

    MXA, you and your man made a very cute bubba.  Congrats!  And as much as I love the game, being with one’s significant other when she is giving birth is a wee bit more important than a match.

  78. Dolce says:

    Awww… hot baller + cute baby = dolce! kiss

  79. FootballerChick43 says:

    Thats a cute kid. Oh my gosh.
    All the footballers kids are always so cute but…
    This one wins. Deffo.

    Except for maybe Sophie-Ella trumping.

  80. Erin says:

    So so so so cute!!!!  I don’t love babies, but I love hot men with their babies.  Thank you, Xabi, for your supreme hotness.  Please stay with us for many more years!

  81. Chel.C. says:

    O M GEE.  Adorable and made my crappy day into a much cuter crappy day.

    And didn’t he only miss it b/c his fiance was giving birth on the exact day of the match or something?  idk, but i think the birth of your child is a little more important than a football match. Not by much though <img src="; width="19" height="19" alt="raspberry" style="border:0;" />

  82. Hannah says:

    Aww that is adorable…

    not so sure about his priorities on missing the CL match, though.

  83. The only babies I get mushy over are puppies but I have to say that Xabi’s little one here is really cute. And to think that he put his foot down and made sure he was there for his bubba’s birth despite what Rafa wanted—I love that!! He’s one cool dude….right Mrs. Xabi?  <img src="; width="19" height="19" alt="wink" style="border:0;" />

  84. Paris says:

    Such a cute picture hopefully Jon will be a Liverpool player just like his dad we can always do with a new world class player

  85. freddiegirl says:

    Well, I like other people’s babies…because I can give them back..not ready for my own…:L:L:L:L:L
    Cuuuute!  Mrs. Xabi will love this when she jumps on!

  86. Kimothie says:

    *feels instantly mushy*

    Love the grumpy bubba.

  87. Sarah says:

    1,2,3, all together now: Awwwwwww!!

    Well, except for all you girls that don’t like babies.  Tsk, tsk.
