trend spotting: baby repair kits


Footballer’s wives have always known babies make great designer accessories – not as good as a Chloe Paddington handbag, mind you – but fairly decent nonetheless.

Now the boys are getting in on it. The latest use for their offspring? As “repair kits” for the players.

The Sunday Times has reported that several Premier League football players have stored stem cells from their newborn babies as future protection against a career threatening injury.

It’s thought that in the future the cells can be used to cure ligament and cartilage injuries.

One footballer, playing in the Northwest of England is quoted as saying: “We decided to store our new baby’s stem cells for possible future therapeutic reasons… As a footballer, if you?re prone to injury it can mean the end of your career, so having your stem cells – a repair kit if you like – on hand makes sense.“

England boss Steve McClaren is celebrating his first victory as new team boss. England trounced Greece 4-0, with goals by newly appointed captain, John Terry, Frank Lampard (hope he’s exorcised those World Cup demons), and Peter Crouch (goals 2, cocaine snorting breast-flashing, unfaithful girlfriends – 0). John Terry says that David Beckham sent him a text message wishing him good luck, and that it was a dream come true to have a result like that.

Colleen McLoughlin has revealed her top fashion tips for the new season:
“Invest in a quality handbag, shoes and belt. Buy items that match different trends, like the leopard print bag, rather than spending all your money on one look.“ She also hypes gold and lurex as “really glam”.

Pregnancy rumours are flying around Victoria Beckham, but their reps refuse to confirm or deny. The timing of their recent “love boat” action seems too soon for anyone to know surely? Tabloids are saying Victoria’s recent wardrobe choices of “baggy” tops are a dead giveaway.
