Less than 24 hours after Frank Lampard celebrated Chelsea’s victory over Man U in the FA Cup, his girlfriend Elen Rives gave birth to their second child, Isla.
Isla was delivered by C-section at 1.52 on Sunday and weighs 6 lbs 8oz.
Reports say that Elen went into labour after a night out with Frank and the crew to celebrate the Chelsea win on Saturday – Elen stayed out until just before midnight.
Did Isla decide to come early to celebrate with her pops, or was it the common “MILB” scenario? Or, did Elen read our post on Friday and give in to the gods of labour? You decide.
Congratulations, it’s a wonderful time to be the Lamps right now: a new dad, the FA cup, and the winner of Round one of the Thigh-Off. Live the dream, Frank. Live the dream.

Victoria, we love the ostentatiousness of rocking a Tiffany blue Chanel jacket over a spandex ensemble of bone hugging leggings and PVC corset belt. We do.
We love that you are actually wearing spandex in public, without a sweatshirt tied around your waist to hide your ass from the general pubic. Very admirable.
The shoes are the hotness. As is the lemon-sized rock on the finger.
But here’s the thing – if your non-hidden ass is so bony you could cut glass with it, the time may have come to eat a carb or two.
We recommend a big bacon butty and some chips. With lots of mayo. And a side of more bacon. And some eggs benedict. A hot chocolate with marshmallows. Etc.

We are praying to the Gods of labour pangs to have mercy on your soul and grant you a reprieve from the baby belly.
You have shopped.
You have shopped some more.
And then, you have dug deep, deep down, and gone shopping again. Surely by now you deserve the second heir to the money train throne.
Plus, your first bubba, Luna, is pretty cute and we’d like some new baby pictures please.
We will get through this challenging time of impatience by reminiscing over our favourite photo of you, drunk on a table in Germany, singing football songs and chants about your man in an offkey vocal.
So come on baby Lamps, let’s get moving.

“A lot of the houses I looked at were really garish – lots of gold, all very Versace. Believe it or not David and I do have good taste. I like everything to be simple and plain.”
We’re going to hazard a wild guess that of all people you don’t want to make enemies with, it’s Donatella Versace. She’ll slap the fake tan off you faster than you can say ‘St. Tropez spray’.
