David Villa: Standing Up to Shirt Stains

Images: Hola! magazine, Europa Press.

Initially, Iker raised his hand for razors. Because we’d like to envision a certain red-bearded ‘baller turning green with envy at his national teammate’s sexy star power, Xabi Alonso chose to “man up” for moisturizers.

And  now, there’s this: Barcelona’s David Villa and his tough crew of arm-crossed toddlers testing the threshold of their preferred turf stain treatment: Skip detergent.

Before you’re quick to roll your eyes at reading about yet another footballer’s shilling skills, let it be known this partnership isn’t just about promoting products. Turns out, this Spanish cloth-stain combatant enlisted our 2nd favourite DILF (first is here) to showcase his sporting superiority and demonstrate how recreational activities can be used as vehicles for child development.

Barcelona star David Villa product shillKind of cute, right?

Okay, fine. Doting, dirt-fighting daddies are said to be extremely hazardous to the lifespan of your internal organs. So definitely don’t enlarge the photo at left. Or any of our image thumbnails, for that matter. And only continue reading if you agree to do so at your own risk.
Barcelona footballer David VillaLast week while in Madrid, the soulpatch supremo led a master skills class with his fellow anklebiters, filmed a TV advert and fielded media interviews all before finishing off the day’s festivities by lending Skip a helpful hand in their attempt to clean the 40 kids’ shirts.

So, as we were saying, Villa provided some choice quotes to the media outlets in attendance, which we’ve captured here for the nosy nellies among us:

- Allowing children to play sports, as Villa put it, “enables them to display their creativity, even if this means a greater amount of dirt”

- Meanwhile, in the Villa household, he claimed that his lovely kids “are stained a lot,” but it’s his wife, Patricia, who is responsible for always keeping Zaida and Olaya looking “great” and well-groomed

- He also copped to his child-rearing tactics (or lack thereof) by admitting he “just tries to help, but not interfere” with Patricia’s stay-at-home-mum skills, mainly because he “knows that is not” his “thing”

Happy Monday!

  2. Emme says:

    This ad is really adorable. I wish I could get David Villa to do my laundry for me.

  3. Taskeen says:

    Kickette. I am only 20 years old. Ovary combustion is desperately unhealthy for me at this young and tender age.
    But.. It was kinda worth it! the pics of dahveed and the kiddies!! And then the tight shirt!! i need to go and lie down.. immediately!

  4. Dru says:

    OT but: the Chilean miners David and other La Roja members signed a shirt for, are emerging to the surface as I type! So glad they made it out!

  5. jamtartheart says:

    Gah, cutest thing ever!!! The 'toddler huddle cuddle' in pic four is very nearly too much to bear, hahaha. A+, David Villa!

  6. VS1986 says:

    My thoughts on these adorable pictures: 1) Gotta love a man who loves the kids and 2) I certainly wouldn't mind bearing David Villa's children :)

  7. lonelySTARSHINE says:

    awwwww :)

  8. MrsVilla-to-be says:

    I`m officially in love with Guaje! He is so lovely with kids! I want his babies! Aaaghhh that Patricia! The luckiest woman on Earth!!!
    P.S. The girl in picture 2 on the right looks like she`ll kick somebody`s ass haha The bitchface influence:) Great!

  9. ZaharaSpain NTBarca* says:

    clearly, he was sent from heaven. his existence just makes the world a better place. how i adore this hombre

  10. xbabyshakesx says:

    Sweetest man ever!
    these pictures just prove it!

  11. BarceLisa says:

    who would have guessed that pic at the top was not the cutest part of this post? my ovaries certainly didn't.

  12. Lotte (Zlatanista) says:

    I thought the same thing. Does he really think of himself as someone that "lends a hand" to his wife when it comes to raising the kids? You could easily interpret his words like that. In my world (and in my home) the man is more than a helper. But hey, i know absolutely nothing about his family life, that´s just how i read his comments. He´s very cute though.

    • hereforthenando says:

      I completely agree, I was kind of put off by that.

      • Pique_Xavi says:

        I think that it was a bad translation not the wording part but the way that it was meant. I mean a guy who would care so much about others wouldn't be the type of daddy who wouldn't be involved in his own children's lives. I'm guessing he meant it as a joke because I have actually heard men say that about their kids and household, mainly saying 'my wife is the boss at our house'.

        • Lotte (Zlatanista) says:

          I´m a bit cynical i guess :) .

          • Pique_Xavi says:

            Me too but I just don't see it in him. But that's one of the reasons I let go of one of my exes. After listening to some obsessive parent who wanted his kid to play baseball even though the kid wasn't that good and didn't like it anyway I ask him if he would force his "our" children to play baseball (his favorite sport). He said this "i'll take care of the sports and no soccer" "you take care of everything else"…. Few weeks later we weren't together anymore, well, that and other stuff but that stuck with me.

            I don't like the word soccer either.

            • Dru says:

              I hate the word soccer too! Unless it's in the title of the film Shaolin Soccer (have you seen it with subs? It's LOOOOOLLLLS all around).

              About my earlier comment, what I meant was that my dad didn't really know what to do with me as a baby cause my mum did all the childcare stuff, I only started getting more time with him after I started pre-school and he felt he had something constructive to contribute to my life (i.e. checking homework, teaching me to read etc). Our man David might well be like that, but he might not too- the translation sounds a little awkward. Besides, like people have said earlier, he seems like a caring kind of guy- hardly the type to just let his bubbas run amok or let them be spoiled brats.

              • Pique_Xavi says:

                No I haven't seen it. I'll check it out.____LOL, sorry I totally got the wrong idea. But true some moms try to take care of the baby stage for one of two reasons, they don't want to feel like bad moms or because dads for some reason think they will break the baby. I see my sister get all nervous when I carry my nephew and I have held babies since I was 7 about 16 babies so far plus some others but only for a few minutes. Mommies often worry too much I think but then again what mother doesn't even if their kids are like 20 yrs old, lol.

  13. sheila says:

    He is a cutie patootie…

  14. ela says:

    i spent all weekend waiting for new posts on kickette…and boy is this post worth the wait…wat can be better than a hot footballer surrounded by kids who adore him, has a million dollar smile on his face and is taking about his baby girls…excuse me i have to go faint now….

  15. KatiGaray says:

    A way to stop all this campaigning childishness would be a Sergio Ramos CK Underwear campaign…. Nothing would top that, not even CR7 in Armani…. <3 RAMOS <3 te queiro much mi amor

  16. @vinivia says:

    the 4th pic is too cute! he looks like he's happily scooping up any kids who want some villa love

  17. Missjambelina7 says:

    Move over David Beckham i would definitely buy anything this gorgeous man advertises hehe, DILF :)

  18. Leya_S says:

    okay 1) I don't check Kickette for a day and there's like a million new posts so fail on my part
    and 2) the first thing I see (and last bc I'm going to sleep) is David Villa playing with children?!? I love it! Ballers and bubbas (even kids that aren't theirs) beats the Monday Mmmmm every time in my book, sorry.
    He's such a sweetheart!

  19. SoccerLoverrrr says:

    Daveeed u have my heart <3

  20. Nora says:

    I'm glad my ovaries are already in tatters because they would have exploded again. Mmmmm now I will dream of a dirty David and other naughty shenanigans, which will end with him throwing said dirty items in the washing machine… because what's sexier than a man doing laundry? Oh, that's right, men being tackled by an army of adorable children. *BOOM*…. I guess they could explode again.

  21. Pique_Xavi says:

    Tough one Senora… What about Torres and his little princess? I couldn't choose if that came to be a post on Kickette.

    • Dru says:

      Oh wow, I can't even imagine trying to pit Daddy Torres against Daddy Villa.

      Also, maybe Daveeed is just one of those dads who has no idea what to do with kids when they're still little- my dad was one of those too. Besides, his daughters (the elder one anyway, younger one is too tiny still) look like they adore him, which is just cute all around.

      • Pique_Xavi says:

        Well my dad didn't know much until way later but when they are there regardless you remember the love. My dad braided our hair (3 girls), took us to school everyday before work, bought us gigantic sweater and what we appreciated the most that because of him by age 3 all my sibblings and me learned how to read. He worked all day and the little time we spent with him was/is our most memorable. So his "daddy issues" will be the daughters greatest memories.

  22. Pique_Xavi says:

    Can my heart really handle another spanish baller? I'm leaning towards yes! Though its getting crowded in there I just love how one can find pictures of him always kissing his daughter. Oh and on the part of letting his wife handle everything, I don't think its really his choice :) lol

    Take a look at picture #2 at kid standing second from the left who has obviously already taken his bitchface lesson from Villa. Ole! Love it!

    Villa looks confused in the first picture. Come on over David I'm also teaching my cousin how to use a washer.

    • ela says:

      i know exactly wat u mean spanish footballers are just too good…u cant help but love them all…

      • Pique_Xavi says:

        Weird how they seem to be the team to beat when it comes to drooling fans. The entire team has lovers and if Pep ever became their NT coach it would truly be the hottest team in the planet because La Rojita is next generation of hot spanish men.

        • Lotte (Zlatanista) says:

          Oh Pep would complete the team hotness-wise. But that would have to wait, he is all Barca!

          • Pique_Xavi says:

            Oh yeeeeah! By then I'll probably will only be able to say the "hot one" to Pep and not to the little men on the field, lol. And yes, I said probably :) there is a chance I might think one of the youngins is hot but to myself.

        • Dru says:

          Yep, La Rojita are promising indeed- but I suspect that by the time enough of them graduate to La Roja, I'll be confined to admiring their play and wanting to pet them like puppies, rather than lusting after them the way I do after Casillas & Co (I mean, I can't even think of looking at Sergio Canales that way- I'd be drooling if I was 18 but at 25, I'd feel like a perv for giving a teenager the eye- maybe I'm just getting old!).

          I swear it was so weird to watch the World Cup this year after realising that I'm older than half of La Roja. How time flies…

          • Pique_Xavi says:

            Okay now I'm "ashamed" to admit this but no you won't feel that bad, lol. I mean if they look their age or younger then maybe but I can tell you from own experience that there is a little bit of guilt but somehow you get use to it. I know it sounds bad but Pique is way younger than me and I drool over the guy. It helps though he looks a little bit older than he is. But if I date them younger the lusting over them doesn't compare now does it? But yes, by next world cup I think I will be hoping for better football than in this WC because I will be waaaaaaay older and then it will be wrong. You are going to be okay for next WC but depends for the one in 2018 which I hope is in the US so I can go for sure. Yes I didn't take advantage of previous WCs I was so into the games and scored I overlooked many of the men themselves but not Canna. I still have Xavi though :)

            • Dru says:

              Haha, no it's not as if I have a prob with Pique, Navas, Ramos etc being a couple of years younger than me- it's easier to think of them as men and not boys cause they look like men, y'know? Even my babyfaced true love, Fern, is ok to love for me (in my head) cause he's a bit older than me/my age.
              And La Rojita are still boys, though what makes me feel a little pervy looking at them is not their being younger than me, it's just that they look like such babies AND they're almost jailbait! (hello, mini Sergio) and I'll have to see how they grow up in order to determine if I can lust after any (i.e. they can't keep looking like jailbait or else I'll feel like a real perv!). Also, I'm 25 and teenagers just don't do it for me any more, like I said Morata and Canales make me feel like I do when I see puppies- maternal, not lustful. I'd be quite happy to just pinch their cheeks and coo over them :) .

              On a side note: mini Sergio's gf is prettyyyyyyy. http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_OveJgXCOExU/TGHaUdmegqI…

              • Pique_Xavi says:

                Oh okay I get you. Yes the baby faces. When I was 18 and dated 20 some bay faces it was cute but yes as you get older you want to cuddle them when they are sad, lol. But I do get the maternal part as I did watch back a few years ago sub15 of my national team and I was like aaaw look at those kids. I was worried for them and you are right about not being able to see them as men you would lust over. It must be in our DNA or something. I wouldn't want some old lady perving after my young son, lol… Mini Sergio is adorable. There is one kid who plays for Barca B and he looks like the statue of David it kind of creepy.

    • Taskeen says:

      oh the confusion that the Sapnish NT causes!
      Geri v The Ramos: how is one girl meant to choose just one? lol its a hard life when you adore Geri but Sergio and his headband keep popping up everywhere

      • Pique_Xavi says:

        lol :) Yes the entire spanish team does to that to me. Of course we all have our top shall I dare to say 3? But the rest are just as good. I have a soft spot for The Ramos and I hadn't confessed this but here I go… I too wore my share of not only red jeans but green ones too! I'm not ashamed to say it just weird this subject came up and brought back so many wonderful memories. I had my bermuda short phase aswell. I guess I wanted to distance myself from all the pink and ruffles my mom and aunts use to make wear as a child. Now I tone it down but I wouldn't be ashamed to wear them again. Everytime I read something about him it reminds me of my past clothing "styles" LOL so much fun.

        • Taskeen says:

          I definitely like that top 3 idea, but number 3 should be a wild card entry that can change periodically (the fact that there are so many to choose from in one team still baffles me!)
          haha it is weird that this came up coz i myself slipped on a pair of green skinnies this week lol.. ain't no shame in working the Sergio-esque jeans:) Even though some of his clothes induce a LOL here and there i think he manages to pull each and every outfit off though! not many guys can accomplish that, it takes a certain kinda goofy hottie to work The Ramos style as well as he does haha

          • Pique_Xavi says:

            Yes, I like that idea too. Specially since many are having babies or getting gf's. I mean if they have gf's I can still lust without guilt but when they have babies its another kind of "love". People make fun of others for jeans like Ramos and couple of years from now everyone is going to have that style while he is going to be shockig us with something new. Like the flannel shirts which I have loved since I was 7 yrs old and wear them always now here at least in the US are in fashion yet again. That's why I defend the ballers that wear them especially Pique and Xabi Alonso that wear them often.

            • Taskeen says:

              Too right! The Ramos is ahead of his time lol, anyway Pique and Xabi are also two of the better dressed in the team, I'm a fan of the Saint but I can't handle those jean cuffs, they still haunt me sometimes

    awww cayute!

  24. Jackie says:

    First the basketball one, now this. Gosh Kickette you make me smile.

  25. SpanishFootieLover says:

  26. Steph says:

    Ahh, I just really love David. :) He always seems like such a great and genuine guy, he's just awesome. And David with kids? OMG, so cute! And with his kids? OMG, even more adorable. Zaida is so cute and looks so much like him! :D

  27. @AgnesWonka says:

    the pics with the kids make my ovaries explode!

  28. @AgnesWonka says:

    please David, come to my house and do the washing!
    first, coz you're hot and I want you in my house
    second, coz Idk how to use my house's washing machine! :S

  29. EternalDreamer says:

    Kickette, I clicked on the picture before reading that part of the article. He is so freakin' cute with the kids; trying to bring that one kid into the group hug – adorable!

  30. sarrible says:

    Unf. Daveeed covered in babies. Yes.

  31. jen says:

    That is a tiny tiny t-shirt David and I will spend the rest of my afternoon createing a sonnet about it…

    Is that your nipple I see?
    As well, a belly button visible
    through that tiny tiny tee?

    crap…can anyone help me rhyme "visible"?

  32. being dirty is nice:))Cool football player.To be close to children is very important even ıf it is commercial.

  33. beth says:

    ahhhh cant believe i get to see him in the flesh tomorrow night!! (right enough, i seen him against man u last year but that was only a friendly)

  34. Bri says:

    you always know how to make me smile kickette!

  35. LosAngeleno says:

    My fondness for this man grows every day. He can bitchface and slap grown men all he wants, as long as he keeps hanging out with kids and sending jerseys/support to trapped miners.

    • Pique_Xavi says:

      Same here :)

    • Dru says:

      And on that note: there's finally some hope that they can get the trapped miners out! I hope they all get rescued and make it safely back to their families…

      The Bitchface is a work of art, indeed.

  36. zztop says:

    Kids really like him. I always think someone must be a good person if they are loved instinctively by animals and little children.

  37. CarmenFoxe says:

    Awww atleast he tries! 3rd picture is my favourite. What a nice man!
