A Foine Romance Or A Messi Marriage?

It seems that when it comes to Lionel Messi and Antonella Roccuzzo’s relationship status, even our overactive imaginations have failed to keep up with actual events.

Deep breaths.


Headed Home: Steven Gerrard & Family


Why does Alex G. always insist on dressing her daughters in matching outfits? Side note: Steven Gerrard to begin light training at Liverpool.

Just Married: Fernando Gago & Gisela Dulko


Another ‘baller is off the market Kickettes!

Argentina international and Real Madrid midfielder, Fernando Gago, and his lady love, tennis pro Gisela Dulko, tied the knot on Wednesday in the Palermo district of Buenos Aires, Argentina. Both went for simple wedding day dress statements for their low-key civil ceremony, which was later celebrated at a lavish Tattersal salon reception with some help from 400 of their closest friends and family.

In case you’re behind your Gago news, the newlyweds first met while Dulko was playing in the 2009 Masters Series of Madrid (ya know, it’s that one tennis tournament a year that literally every footballer and WAG seek out seats for). It was there that Gago managed to snag her digits through friends, and the rest is history.


Jesus Navas: High-End Home Video


Video first spotted on theoffside.com.

Last month we told you how Spanish International and crystal-coloured eye crusher, Jesus Navas, got hitched to his longtime (albeit quite young) love Alejandra in their hometown of Seville. Now, for the most intrusive of minds, you can witness this couple’s most intimate moments from their big day, curiously set to an orchestra-on-auto-tune soundtrack.

All attentive readers should know by now that wedding movie trailers are the new black. Naturally, the more of these we come across, the more competitors we have to pit against one another to fight for the ‘best highlights reel’ title.

Thus Kickettes, who do you think did a better job of capturing all the bling and beauty their ‘baller wedding had to offer: Aston Villa’s Brad Guzan or Sevilla FC’s Navas?

Pitter Patter: David & Victoria Beckham Welcome A Baby Girl


I am so proud and excited to announce the birth of our daughter Harper Seven  Beckham. She weighed a healthy 7lbs 10oz and arrived at 7.55 this morning, here in LA. Victoria is doing really well and her brothers are delighted to have a  baby sister xx.

Since we’ve been waiting for news on this matter with almost as much excitement as the proud pappy, it fills us with overwhelming joy to kick off our week with the news that Harper Seven Beckham has been born. Contrary to reports that the Beckhams’ fourth baby was due on the same date as the American Independence Day holiday, the latest Beckham bubba made her debut on 10th July and her parents very kindly saved us the trouble of speculating wildly about what her name might be by announcing it promptly.

We can now direct all of our energy towards bickering about its origins. Suggestions from the Kickette staff to date include homages to Harper Lee, whose 1960 novel ‘To Kill A Mockingbird’ is sure to be a family favourite, Seinfeld’s George Costanza, Saved By The Bell’s Tiffani-Amber Thiessen and Erykah Badu.

We believe it only appropriate that you have your opportunity to throw your suggestions into the ring. You do that while we start jonesing for photos.
