Pitter Patter: Fernando Torres & Olalla Dominguez Welcome Son, Leo – UPDATED


UPDATE: We now know that Olalla gave birth to baby Leo at Liverpool Women’s Hospital – the same delivery destination of Coleen & Kai Rooney. Low and behold, Xabi Alonso is rumoured to have done an in-person celebratory jig at the hospital with Fernando.

As we all already know, Fernando Torres missed last night’s Liverpool match against Aston Villa to witness the birth of his second child. We’re now giddy-with-glee to confirm that Olalla gave birth to a healthy¬† baby boy, Leo, late yesterday. The footy world was rocked to its core [as were the pastry shops within 10 kilometers of our flats] so much so that the baby’s birth was not reported according to the time of day, but rather, what minute mark of Liverpool’s match (the 74th, FYI). His footballin’ future already seems to be bright, no?

Unlike their first bundle of ovary-bursting joy, Olalla gave birth in Liverpool and not in the couple’s Spanish hometown [two days ahead of her actual due date, as we first reported]. Also unlike their first ride on the kiddie-merry-go-round: Xabi Alonso was present! We’re ignoring the obvious – that Mr. Alonso’s fleeting appearance at Anfield happened on coincidence – as we presume you all plan to do, too. Anyone else envisioning happy hospital high-fives being shared between Xabi, Steven Gerrard and proud papa Torres? Ignorance is indeed bliss.

Other deets are of the limited variety at this point, but once our updates are in, the smoke signals we plan on sending out will put the Papal conclave to shame.¬† In the interim, we leave you with Fer’s abs to soften the blow/tide you over.

Before we forget, though, our unofficial pool is now open for Sergio Ramos’ baptism suit betting. Because he’ll obviously be attending as godfather, and it’s obviously more importante to predict if he’ll be wearing his preferred pants in green or red. Duh.

Enhoarbuena, Fernando y Olalla!

  14. Zahara (Spain NT, Barca lover) says:

    awww congrats to one of my favorite footballer families!yay!

  15. sarakhatmi says:

    I cant wait to see images of the little boy. I think uncle Sergio will show up in a normal suit, he has to. But i dont get it, why does some of you think nando has bad taste in dressing. He is good comapred to Sergio and Iker, they take the price off not being totaly lost in dressing. Nando dresses like any other guy in his age, jeans and t-shirt…sergio walks around in green and red pants and Ikers cuffed jeans is a unforgetebul one…

  17. rubyqueen says:

  18. Claire says:

    Ahh…lickle boo-boo
    Congrats to Mr and Mrs Torres and Nora

    BTW on the El Ramos note – I think he'll break his own records and turn up in either yellow, violet-y purple or bright orange jeans.

  19. Nando y Geri 4ever says:

    Aww!!!!!!! Welcome to the world baby Leo!!!!!!!! If I could have been there, I would have given you a big hug!!!! Congrats Fern and Olalla!!!

  20. canederli says:

    A hearty Mazel Tov to Nando, Olalla and Nora. Welcome, little Leo! I had a big squee when I found out Xabi was in town. I wonder if Sergio was too? He has some free time right about now. How adorable would that be? I can imagine Sernando pacing the hall together all nervous while Olalla was in labor.

  21. Amy King says:

    Awww congrats to Nando and Olalla! soo happy for them both! <333333333333333333333333333

  22. Leo Torres, Liverpool's number 9 :-D

  23. sarrible says:

    I hope Uncle Xabi was on hand to ensure that wee Leo inherits some GQMF fashion sense and not Daddy's, or, God forbid, Uncle Sergio's. Shudder. Babies should not wear Ed Hardy. (Also: SQUEE.)

  24. Linda says:

    It couldn't have gone much better! The win! The baby being born DURING the game! Pepe and his 100 clean sheets! XABI!!!! XABI!!!! My God, I'm still a little shocked and thrilled…

  25. sheila says:

    baby Leo Will Never Learn to Walk Alone…

  26. YouNeverWalkAlone says:

    Lol Am I the only one who's wishing they had named their son after David? Or Sergio?
    Hm, maybe they were just trying to avoid a really common name. Leo is a wonderful name too :)

    Congrats to the most adorable little family in England!!

  27. blake2108 says:

    Congratulations to all Mr and Mrs Torres' family, And them of course.

    Hope her labour wasn't too painful, And this is a guy, who'll never have to go through childbirth, saying that.

    And I LOVE the name Leo.

  28. beri says:

    oh gosh….I'm so happy for them! I can see it now Leo Torres playing for Spain…breaking hearts with his freckled cuteness just like his daddy!

    aww…congrats to Ollala, Fernando and big sis Nora! :)

  29. Sara P says:

    Congrats to the happy couple! The baby is going to be so adorable!!! :) I am curious though….will little Leo play for England or Spain now? Decisions decisions!! :)

    I am going to go with blue….bright blue pants for Sergio. Green seems to be out….and blue seems to be in!! :)

  30. xoWinnie says:

  35. Malin says:

    Oh, fantastic news. Leo is such a sweet name too, I hope they will show him off in some days as they did with Nora. I'm totally amazed by the fact that they are so quick in the game again after Nora, haha. Only just little more than a year between them! Congrats to papa Torres & mama Olalla and hermana Nora! Such a beautiful family.

  36. Marina says:

    Sve cestitke!

  38. gin_in_teacups says:

    Welcome Leo! Yesterday couldn't have been much better for us Liverpool fans. A great win, Pepe's 100th clean sheet, and the new Torres bundle of joy being born during the match. Quite an auspicious beginning for little Leo. Spain's World Cup 2030 hero? Yes?

    Can't wait to see photos! Will there be baby bitchface?

    • Lynz says:

      You missed out that Xabi was present fo the event, which for me made it even more special :) It was indeed a great day.

  39. Lucy says:

    Congratulations to Nando and Olalla. And the fact that he was born in England means he could possibly play for the England or Spain Football team.

  40. Amandinha says:

    aaaaaawww… Bless them!!!

  41. andrea says:

    Liverpool was suffring yesterday without u Torres i wish u come as quickly as u can & congratulation

  42. N says:

    Also, bubba was born DURING a football match? I can't be the only one who loves that fact!

  43. N says:

    Awwww, welcome to the world, little Leo! You have nice parents and an adorable older sister, and I don't even mind the fact that your dad is so protective of his kids, parents SHOULD be that way.

    And congratulations to Fernando and Olalla on becoming parents for the second time (and to Nora on becoming a big sister!)

    Now I'm just going to go imagine the hospital scene right now, my favourite Liverpool and ex-Liverpool (*sob*!) men in one place to celebrate a baby makes me want to jump with joy.

  44. Crystal says:

    Congrats!! Fernando and ollala may leo and nora be blessed with every happiness and success in their wonderful future!!!

  45. bri_saldana says:

  47. chay says:

  48. sheila says:

    I hear they have already signed Leo into the youth development program at Anfield. He Will Never Waaaaa Alone.

  49. Marie says:

    congrats Nando and olalla and WELCOME to Leo!!!!!!!!!
    (and i m sure the ramos will turn up in pink and baby blue combination.)

  50. Says_Who says:

    That baby is going one handsome little heart breaker when he gets older! Congrats to the happy couple and their new bundle of joy.

  51. rainstarmcgee says:

    !!! IM SO HAPPY FOR THEM!!! man that is going to be one pretty baby!

  52. xbabyshakesx says:

    awww baby Leo
    welcome to the world!
    you're gonna be beautiful like the rest of your family!

  53. Missy Manchester says:

    Leo was born on the same day as King Ferdinand IV of Spain! What a coinky dink! Congrats to the royal Torres family on this most auspicious of days. :)

  54. HAPPY says:


    Sergio…NO COMMENT!!! But I can't wait for pictures & everything…

    & he will probably play for Spain…

  55. hereforthenando says:

    I am over the moon with joy. First a win for Liverpool (kind of rare…) and then the news that in the 74th minute Leo Torres was born? I need to see photos immediately, preferably so that I can photo shop my head into them.

  56. Rosie says:

    Such an adorable family! No doubt the cuteness will only increase to ever more painful proportions. It's great that Papa Torres seems like such a family guy. Major congratulations to the whole family, and welcome to the footballing world baby Leo!

    And I'm more interested in what kind of murse Sergio will show up with. Also, I can just picture him showing with a ruffly shirt to go with those green pants, since there often seems to be ruffles and bows involved in those religious-related baby events, regardless of gender.

  57. Zinny says:

    I hope baby Leo inherits his daddy's bitchface. But hopefully he does not follow Uncle Sergio's taste in fashion.
    I'm so excited! Now will he play for England or for Spain?

    • Malin says:

      He will probably play for Spain. England use Jus Soli, but modified, so he will probably get citizenship since Nando has lived there for several years, but Spain have a very strong Jus Sanguinis, which will give him a spansih citizenship first.

    • laura says:

      I hope he plays for England because Spain is the best. and I think England needs better players.

  58. Maria says:

    congrats to them both, and wow, xabi and fer certainly are great friends.

    • Sandra says:

      haha yeah! but it helps that he is suspended for the champions league game so he can be in liverpool

  59. Brianne says:

    Congratulations to Fernando, Olalla and big sister Nora! :)

  60. vmj says:

    Oh wow! What wonderful news… Congrats Fernando and Olalla! :)

  61. Sofia says:

    Congratulations Olalla and Fernando!!! (And sister Nora!) A big (virtual) hug to Leo :) Liverpool's next number 9? Let's hope so!

    • hereforthenando says:

      While I would love nothing more than for Leo Torres to step into his father's shoes at Anfield, I do sort of hope that we have some good strikers between now and the next twenty years :)

      • N says:

        I'll second that hope….because a striker who's under 10 years of age (which is how old he might be when Fern presumably retires from playing) is a bit, er, TOO young for the job, no? LOL.

    • Quincy says:

      And what if he's got more talent to play cricket? I wouldn't want him in the squad then =S Wait and see till he first kicks a ball =D

  62. Sandra says:

    congrats to the couple and nora!!
    i wish them the best of luck!

  63. coco says:

    Congrats to the happy couple and little sis…
