Liverpool FC: Left Holding The Babies

Liverpool FC pay their annual visit to Alder Hey Children’s Hospital. Under no other circumstances would this situation seem in any way normal. (Images via ontd_football)

It’s usually the end of the season when we are forced to ponder why men, (including those who we don’t normally find ourselves hankering over) look so much more appealing when paired with a cute baby.

Fortunately though, it’s becoming a tradition for footballers to hang out in children’s hospitals during the festive period and we have the opportunity to consider the subject all over again.

Take Liverpool FC. Excluding Nando (top), who regularly challenges the hormones of even the most resistant of Kickette staff, we are particularly noting how Lucas Leiva’s appeal has skyrocketed with the simple addition of a festive Santa hat and a cutey litte baby. Who knew?

Admittedly the same thing cannot be said about Raul Meireles, for whom the Santa hat merely contributes to his overall ‘escaped convict’ look. We’re also not entirely sure whether that sleeping baby will fully appreciate the contents of his or her Liverpool gift bag, but we appreciate the overall gesture, nonetheless.

Anyway. All is forgiven when casting one’s eyes over the outrageous loveliness that is Steven Gerrard in this photo. Do you feel the same? Or do your ovaries (real or imagined) remain unmoved by such rampaging cuteness?

Tell us!

    Defying all the Physics laws, my ovaries exploded AGAIN!! Nando and Stevie are to be blamed. And for a couple of seconds you have also fooled me into thinking that baby was mini-Nando!!
    But the most important here is my wishlist for Santa Claus this year:
    May all the bubbas / children around the world who are sick GET WELL pretty soon!!!!

  4. RealLisa says:

    Aaaawww and how adorable Nano can be!

  5. Pen says:

    < Torres > ?!?!?!?!?

  6. Pen says:

    What happened to his haircut? Click on my nickname, and see he private photos.

  7. Crackers says:

    Liverpool and babies? Kickette, are you TRYING to destroy all the ovaries we have left after goggling at Stevie and Nando's daughters? (no pics of his son yet, but I understand them wanting to keep their baby out of the press)

    I hope the kids here get better, watching such tiny bodies hooked up to wires is heartbreaking.

  8. kris says:

    omg, Fernando !!! There is no more adorable man than he is !!!

  9. Luna says:

    Ok Kicketters..I love my Blue boys not fan of these but my friends got me hooked up on Stevie in some way and with this picture I must admit he's cute but what really hooked me up on this whole thing was Nando!! Not fan of him but god he's super hot..and now holding that baby (who I thought was lil Leo) he's super cute and adorable…I guess I fell in love ^^

  10. dontaskmetosmile says:

    It's so obvious who the dads are in the group. Nando is a natural with the baby-holding skills. But those wires attached to that tiny, tiny body is heartbreaking. God bless that little bundle and the other little one in the crib.

    Stevie G. is almost as adorable as the bubba he's holding! Bless.

  11. Mrs.FernandoTorres says:

    Well Kickette, you sure know how to make ones ovaries burst with some deliciousnes and awww moments. i love my LFC boys and my ovaies burst when i saw them in the pics.

    ESPECIALLY NANDO!! and steviee :)

    i thought the little bubba nando was holding was leo :( got me all excited

    but these boys are doing a wonderful thing


    goodness nando you sure know how to make a womens eart fluster with those freckles, and bed head wavy hair and that little smile/smirk :O

  12. Nando y Geri 4ever says:

    Wow…..Fern………there is no hotter striker than him. With his funny wavy brown hair, freckles, and smile, I couldn't fall in love with him more. Oh wait, my ovaries just exploded again.

  13. beri says:

    I think my ovaries just combusted after seeing that pic! Dear me Fernando Torres is a gorgeous man! Oh my…Olalla is lucky!

  14. Jen says:

    Adorable, especially Nando and Stevie!!! Completely comfortable daddy poses……Lucas and Raul look a little out of place, but they are trying.
    God bless to all the children, and good luck to my Reds!

  15. Ninjess says:

    Okay, I was smiling until I got to that last picture. Then, I pretty much died. Thank you, Kickette for indulging my lifetime love of Stevie G.

  16. ashmenon says:

    I love how in the first photo the rest of them are like "uhh, I'm not sure how to do this, Nando, you hold the thingie plskthx" and Nando's like "geez, guys, it's not a grenade, watch me. Ima be all daddylike."

  17. jelly says:

    SO MOVED SO MOVED!!! They look like a massive family with beautiful beautiful children surrounding them. Filled me up with warm Christmas cheer :) ))))

  18. WAG2BE says:

    LMFAOOO, i can almost hear all the women in the hospital going "damnitt" as they realized they werent wearing eyeliner/mascara/appealing clothing. I mean you just gave birth and thats beautiful and all, but when Fernando Torres walks into the room…… *sigh as i realize his amazing cheekbones*

  19. Nicola says:

    Thank you, ladies, for making my ovaries burst yet again. It's great to see the all footballers (not just my LFC boys) visiting the children. It has to be a complete joy for the children to get these visits, and put a smile on their faces. Bless.

  20. asiyah says:

    is that nando junior!!?!???!?!!!?!?!?!
    and if not… when well we see leoooooo omg im dying here

  21. Hannah Gray says:

    They all look great, my LFC boys! Fernando and Stevie G look adorable with those babies!

  22. jellenp says:

    So agree re #3. Wiping myself off the floor. Men and babies….sigh.

  23. simone says:

    Nando absolutely looks like a pro.

  24. simone says:

    Looks like nando is a pro.

  25. Lynz says:

    Aww, this is sooo sweeeet <3 But can someone tell me who's the guy right at the back in the very first picture?
    Also, I only just noticed, but Nando's cheekbones are to die for.

  26. Ofeily9 says:

    I HAVE TO SAY THAT LIVERPOOL’S PLAYER LOOK SO GOOD, especiallay Nando and Stevie.

  27. Ninaaaa says:

    OMGANFAKJFAKJFAJAJ TORRESSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! puttin him in a picture along side babies and a crib!!! HOLYYY SHIZZZZZZLE MAN! *ovaries explode*

  28. Soccergirl154 says:

    There’s nothing sexier than a man holding a baby.

  29. Bri says:

    Kickette. You win. You got me. I know it sounds like sacrilege to most of you but I absolutely cannot stand Nando. I really have a burning dislike for him. Seriously, one of my circles of hell would include a date with him. Another of my circles of hell would be if he ever went to one of my clubs. But somehow that stupid picture even got my ovaries going. Damn the holidays, I almost squeed at a picture of the Nando….ALMOST…..I feel dirty.

  30. C16 says:

    Awww! How adorable looks the Nando holding that cute little baby??? Melts my heart!!!!
    And I don't have another choice but to love Steven Gerrard… And that baby!! CUTE!!!

    OT but damn Raul Meireles… He looks hot and adorable at the same time wearing that Santa hat. Now that's a talent :D

    • Bri says:

      I'm glad other people appreciate Raul as much as I do. I think he is just a hot ticket. You should see him with his girls!

  31. TwinkleToeNasri <3 U says:

    I think i got pregnant by just looking at Nando and Steve holding those cute bubbas respectively loooool… but stevie's smile is just out of this world wooow i cant believe ive never really looked at stevie in 'THAT' way (if that makes sense) hot damn!

  32. Summer says:

    I love to see Fernando…And I've seen him with his baby (The Kid with The Baby!!! I think it sounds fantastic)…They are both so adorable and sweet <3!!!

    I really like both Steven's Moncler…It's pretty to see him with a baby boy (You mybe ask Alex for a male), because he has only two daughters (Lily and Lexie)…Steve we want a little Steve G.!!!!

  33. Leya_S says:

    Okay so first: FALSE ADVERTISEMENT KICKETTE!! I saw Fern holding a baby and thought it was baby Leo!!
    Secondly, everyone looks so adorable. I'm interested to know if Squirtle was there, as I might be scared of him if I were a small child, haha.
    Fernando and Stevie G. look so AMAZING, I almost can't stand it!!!

    • senora ramos says:

      agreed leya…i was all OMGOMGOMG. then i read the post :(
      but still, they all look so cute. men with babies really do something for me. but that may be because i'm so wanting a new one (baby, not man) right now and have to wait a couple of more years :(

      not that there's anything wrong with the one i have now or anything.
      urgg…nothing coming out right. i blame it on me thinking that was baby leo and the huge disappointment that it wasn't.

    • gin_in_teacups says:

      I also thought it would be little Leo when I first saw the photo. When are our photos of mini Nando coming? I must see the cuteness!

    • sheila says:

      I had the same thought, only more sad, in that I saw all of the tubes and was thinking, only briefly, 'Is his baby in in the ICU?'

      • Deb Stimson says:

        me too. :( But I bet after his day at the hospital, he went home even more thankful for his family. How hard must it be on the family of these kids? :'{

    • Deb Stimson says:

      'Okay so first: FALSE ADVERTISEMENT KICKETTE!! I saw Fern holding a baby and thought it was baby Leo!! '

      Glad I wasn't the only one!

    • @vinivia says:

      i totally did too. and then i looked at the hair on that baby and thought, "wow, how did olalla and fernando produce such a fiery redhead??"

  34. those poor babies :( I work in a hospital and it´s really sad to see kids there

    • Lotte (Zlatanista) says:

      I know, they look so small and vulnerable. Brings a tear to my eye. I'm very sensitive when it comes to kids. But thank god they are getting good care, as it seems.

  35. gin_in_teacups says:

    I've always though Lucas was cute but this makes him extra lovable. And Stevie – be still my heart. This makes me want a baby so badly. Mostly so I can dress it up in cute little Liverpool onesies. Is that a bad reason to want a baby?

    • Leya_S says:

      Liverpool onesies!!!!
      Ahh I love it!
      Now I want one (the baby, not the onesie….okay, sorry, the baby IN the onesie)!!!

    • Goosie says:

      wanting to dress up babies is NEVER a bad reason for wanting a baby :D :D

    • JulieFromParis says:

      Oh you'll see they are too cute when they run around with their kit on. My daughter used to wear her dad's Zidane shirt to sleep when she was 3, and with her little blond ponytail, my heart melted everytime……

  36. @Lyandra says:

    The Liverpool boys look cute. And why all the hate for Raul meireles, Kickette? He looks adorable with that little Santa hat on.

    Btw, that pic of Stevie is totally ovary exploding.

  37. Emme says:

    I like how Fern seems to be the focal point of all the group shots :) It kind of looks like he is giving his best blue steel in that first one.
    It's too bad the babies won't remember this :(

  38. canederli says:

    There are some super cute pictures of Stevie and that toddler over on ONTD_football. The baby was in love with him. There's also some video and the baby grabs his nose and Stevie cracks up. It's too sweet. I guess Nando is good at handling the tiny bebehs what with having a newborn in the house. He looks delicious in all the pictures. Very sweet.

  39. blake2108 says:

    Lucas looks great in these pics

    You can tell he's going to be a great father

  40. MissEstonia says:

    Steven Gerrard looks old…plus I just can't stand him or any of the Liverpool boys (furious United support lashing out here…I hope you forgive me) BUT I will say that Torres, who I am usually not a fan of, looks absolutely adorable! And Lucas Leiva looks very…elfy. I think it's nice, regardless of team affiliation, of footballers to partake in some charity especially this time of year. Regardless of the fact that the babies couldn't care less what random man is holding them at this exact moment.

    • Xabi_eyecandy says:

      how can you NOT stand Steven Gerrard? Come on! he's amazing, cute, awesome, hot, wonderful and such a great player and person <3

      • MissEstonia says:

        I don't think he's cute, awesome, or hot. I don't know about him being a great person because I have never met him. Yet, I have never made any accusations or comments against him as a PERSON. Only against him as a club player/club representative/club captain/footballer. I don't have to like everyone based on football affiliations! But at the same time, it's not like I'd drop what I was doing when I saw him out and about with his family and attack him…he's a person first and foremost…I don't hate his person. I just can't stand the way he is for Liverpool, and seeing such a strong love for Liverpool FC in anyone is a little loathsome for me. Just as I'm sure it's hard for you to understand how anyone can love United.

    • Summer says:

      Probably you don't know who is Steven Gerrard…He's an absolutely symbol of football, of England and above all of Liverpool. He's a great man, with the sense of honor, a strong love for his club, he's gorgeous and especially he's THE CAPTAIN..Don't touch him!!

      • MissEstonia says:

        Several things to addres in your post:
        1. I don't WANT to touch him. I wouldn't go NEAR him to touch him! If I passed him in the street, I wouldn't stop to talk to him…I'd pass him as if he was just some other random person. I have no attraction for him WHATSOEVER and he is the captain of the club I hate…why do I have to like him?

      • MissEstonia says:

        2. As you can probably tell, I have SOME idea of who he is. Just because I don't like someone doesn't mean I don't know who they are and can't appreciate what they are to their club and country. WHEN, in that post, did I ever say that he wasn't a great man, didn't have a sense of honor, didn't have a strong love for his club? Never. I only said I can't stand him. Fair enough, I can stand Jamie Carragher even less, so if I was faced with the two, I'd pick Gerrard. But that's beside the point. The only claim of yours that I did truly make is that he's not gorgeous. Sorry, he's not! I didn't say he was ugly, I didn't say anything even about him being attractive versus not. I only said he looks old. *shrugs* Sorry you've got to get into a tizzy about this.

      • MissEstonia says:

        3. I don't hate him as a person. In fact, I LOVE his family, I love his wife Alex and her style. I just don't think I could ever stand to be in a football-related situation with him. Which is the point of this entire website…because we're not worshipping random, overpaid men here. We're worshipping footballers. And to me, football isn't just "ooh, lad's attractive isn't he?". It's always the game and my club, first and foremost.

    • @Lyandra says:

      Even if your a United fan, how can you hate Stevie G? He is England!

      • MissEstonia says:

        Well, I'm not English and I am not a supporter of England, so…while I appreciate that he's the captain for the team of his country and so forth, and I respect that he's a one-club man, WHY DO I HAVE TO LIKE HIM?! lol! I'm not asking any of you to worship Ryan Giggs because he's a United legend and was, during his time, "Wales" itself like Gerrard is "England." In fact, I know many Liverpool fans dislike Giggs the way I dislike Gerrard.

    • MissEstonia says:

      And a general comment, why can't we just agree to disagree? I can't stand him; you guys are in love with him…so just enjoy being in love with him, and think of it this way: MORE FOR YOU (!!!) without me impeding on your man. Less competition. More chances. lol! :D

      • Xabi_eyecandy says:

        ok np, evrerybody's free to think however they want…just you're the first and only person i've ever heard to say this :)

        • MissEstonia says:

          Aww yeah, well I don’t think there are that many non-England based United fans here so it’s not surprising you don’t hear this viewpoint often. as I said, no problem with him as a human being. Just…Liverpool…oogh!

  41. aps says:

    That is a cute baby Stevie is holding. Of course you can tell who the daddies are. They all look so natural. Especially Nando and Stevie

    • Deb Stimson says:

      true, Stevie & Fernando look like naturals. When I first glanced at the 1st picture with Fernando holding the baby, my heart stopped for a minute because I thought it was HIS baby hooked up to the machines. :{
