Pitter Patter: Joe and Carly Cole Welcome A Baby Boy


Joe and Carly Cole take their daughter Ruby for a spin in Sun City, South Africa during the 2010 World Cup.

Hello! announced exclusively this afternoon that Carly Cole, wife of Liverpool midfielder Joe, had a bouncing baby boy on 19 October at Portland Hospital. We don’t think it’s ever taken this long for news of a ‘baller bubba to circulate the wild web so well done on the secrecy front, Coles.

The little fella, whose name has not been released yet, joins 2.5-year-old Ruby Tatiana. We were unaware that Carly was even pregnant until we speculated about it in September and our faithful Army confirmed it. These two have really fallen off the radar, eh?

It looks like the Twitter account that we believed was Carly’s is now shut down. Something about lack of privacy being the reason. Right. We’re sure young Mr. Cole will make his glossy debut in the aforementioned magazine just as soon as he can fully open his eyes. Congrats to the family!

Coleen Rooney: Many Studs, One Cappliqué


Random Coleen Rooney hiding her baby bump pic breakdown: hair, casually coiffed. Celine Mini Luggage tote, approved. Studded motorcyle boots, very last season. Col’s diamond earrings, fabulously visible to the naked eye. The camo jacket, no comment. The Thursday Friday bag on her right shoulder, misunderstood.

Wait a second, what is that thing? An artist’s hand-sketched rendering of a Balenciaga bag? In appliqué form? Steam pressed on canvas? Can we invent a new word like cappliqué to represent our emotional state of unwell shoulder bag being?
