Pitter Patter: Carly and Joe Cole Become Parents – UPDATED
UPDATE: Joe and Carly have named their daughter Ruby. Thanks JM!
Fellow Kickettes, we are sorry to interrupt our regular schedule of footballer navel-gazing, but we have great news of a very anticipated ‘baller baby arrival.
Congratulations are in order for one of our favorite couples – Joe Cole (of Chelsea FC) and Carly Cole (of untamed hair) who have become proud parents of a baby girl.
The girl weights 6lb 3oz, the labour lasted 16 hours and both the new mum and the bubba are doing fine. The couple still haven’t finally decided on the baby’s name.
After long time *cough* courting Carly and Joe got married in June of last year at the Royal Hospital Chelsea. The bride wore Oscar de la Renta, there was a number of footballers and WAGs in attendance and Hello Magazine was on site to capture the moment.
Ms Cole was quite active during the pregnancy – she walked the dog, did a spot of shopping, sat on a giant workout ball and took the bump for a Sports Relief Bumps and Babies Mile event at Battersea Park.
(FYI, Carly was 8 months pregnant at the time. We mentioned it before, but it bears repeating. We don’t think we would be able to even waddle to the nearest Tescos to pick up a kilo of I’m pregnant let me eat that or I’ll kill you chocolate biscuits if we were that far along, let alone do a charity walk.) Kudos to Carly for introducing her bubba to charity work while still in the womb.
As per our scientific study of baller babies little Cole girl is bound to be deliciously gorgeous bundle of joy.
Congrats to the happy couple!
More updates to follow as soon as we get them.
