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.

Bikini Watch: Coleen McLoughlin in Miami

Coleen McLoughlin has flown a group of six mates out to Miami for a bit of a pre-wedding bender. 

For those not in the know, a WAG-style bender involves spending 12 – 14 hours a day laying in the sun using baby oil as sunscreen and injesting at least half your body weight in alcohol.  And that’s just the day schedule. 

Coleen and Wayne’s wedding is being to be held in Italy this June, rather than France as initially reported. Her maid of honour will be Wayne’s cousin, Claire.

Random: on her wedding banns posted at Crewe registry office, Coleen’s job is listed as “journalist”.    Before you race to judge, consider that Coleen may be on a secret undercover reportage mission to break a story about under-inflated lilo hazards.

New daddy alert: 22-year-old Lukas Podolski (Bayern Munich) is celebrating the birth of his first child this week. 

He may also be celebrating not developing a severe green rash from that craptastic ‘ice’ he’s rocking; this has yet to be confirmed.

Louis was born late Monday evening to Lukas’s girlfriend Monika. Both mummy and baby are doing well.

re: this pic. No, we don’t know why.

Lukas and Monika have been together for four years.  When he was asked by the German press whether or not the baby was planned, Podolski said, “He was absolutely wished for. This is going to be a very beautiful phase in my life.“ 

Congratulations!

It’s a slow news day today (and by slow, we mean, we refuse to get out of bed until Tuesday), so let’s enjoy one of our favourite bubba/baller pics from the past: Roma’s Francesco Totti and his two-year-old son, Cristian.  Totti and his equally gorgeous wife Ilary also share a daughter, Chanel, who’ll be a year old this May.

Also, another of our favourite Totti photos is available for your perusal below.  He’s tantastic!
