Pitter Patter: Fernando Torres and Olalla Dominguez Have a Baby Girl – UPDATED

Update: Looks like Olalla had to be induced because, well, she was becoming the size of a large building. Thus, the “planned” date of delivery, even though baby Nora had a natural birth.

Fernando has yet to leave the hospital and is sleeping in the same room as his wife. Mmm day-old Nando.

His parents have arrived from Madrid to see the baby. A relative told the media that there will be a press conference in a few days, and that the pair will be leaving for Liverpool fairly sharpish as training starts soon.

Another “confidential source” said that Olalla ate from the regular hospital menu and did not make any special requests. We know you need this type of information, Nando-crazies.  We need it too. Countdown baby photos begins.

Original story continues below—

Is this the biggest news we’ve ever posted on Kickette?

Quite possibly.  Let’s read into whether we need to get out more some other time. It will interfere with our swoon.

So: Liverpool’s Fernando Torres has become a father. He is now responsible for another human being. The mind boggles.

Olalla has given birth to a healthy baby girl at 10.30 this morning at the Hospital La Rosaleda Compostelan, in Santiago Compostela, Spain. Both the new mum and the bubba are resting and doing well.

Fernando had the hospital on serious lock – hiring security to ensure nosey stalker types like ourselves couldn’t get up in the mix. The pair have been spending the last ten days keeping a low profile at Olalla’s parents house in preparation.

Interestingly, the reports coming in at this stage suggest a C-section, but we’ve yet to get that confirmed. The birth is simply being referred to as “planned.“ Unless Nando’s freckles have some sort of crystal ball fortune telling ability, we’re going to assume Olalla went under the knife. 

No name for the little one as of yet Reports say they have named the baby Nora. She weighed 3 kilos, 7 grams when she was born. The doctor was a family friend of Olalla’s and declared the baby “in perfect condition.“  We would expect nothing less.

Have any suggestions for a name? We like the sound of Kicketta. No?

  13. Bebechkins says:

    Wow, congrats to Nando and Olalla!

  14. Dreamgirl says:

    Congratulations to them both.:D

    They seem to be quality parent material. Nora is a name the little girl can grow into.

  15. Ain J says:

    I just have to say this: They should've named the baby "Oh-Leila" (Leila is my sister's name. She's OBSESSED with Nando. And YES, she made me write this comment).

  16. IrisRose says:

    Ohhh congrats to Olalla and Fernando.The best news I have heard today.Nora is a very cute name.Can't wait to see the baby.

  17. Macacinha says:

    I suspect that little Nora was overdue, hence the induction. The July 15th date put about might be a)media invention or b)to put the media off around the actual due date. Whichever way, Olalla probably feels very relieved now.

  18. Lizzie A.K.A "The Kid" says:

    Awww baby girl! Congrats to them!

  19. meli286 says:

    I hope she looks like her mother. Olalla is beautiful. Congratulations!

  21. Gg08 says:

  32. Jill says:

    Awww!! Congrats to the happy couple! Nora is going to be a beauty!

  33. kaya says:

    FWIW, I thought besides her tummy housing what seemed like a larger than 3.7 kilo baby, she seemed to keep her shape quite well.
    Anyway, congrats to them; I know nothing about the couple, but Olalla looks like a down to earth chica who doesn’t seek out an ill-deserved spotlight. They’re going to adore being parents more than they can ever imagine.

  34. chocolate says:

    Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay! *does the happy dance* congrats!

  35. lindsay*torres* says:

    OMG. the one day i dont check something major happens! i swear i had a dream abt this last night and now its true! extremely happy for all 3 of them.

  36. Mika says:

    “Induced labour tends to be more intense and painful for the woman, often leading to the increased use of analgesics and other pain-relieving pharmaceuticals” – from my best friend, Wikipedia

    Hope Olalla’s okay!

  37. Lyandra says:

    Awww, that baby bust me one bundle of gorgeousness. Sigh. I hope they release pictures of her soon.

    And need I add, I think Nando would make a wonderful father. He seems responsible and the fact that he’s not too star struck by his awesomeness can only help.

  38. robbie96 says:

    Congrats to the happy parents….Welcome lil’Nora to the world!  <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/cheese.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="cheese" style="border:0;" />

  39. Sandra says:

    This is just wonderful news! A huge congratulations to Fernando and Olalla! I wish them the best of luck and I can’t wait to see the little girl! :D

  40. Congrats to Nando. The baby is 3 kilos 700 grammes, or 3.7 kilos. Bet she’s as adorable as Mommy and talented as daddy. Cant wait to see the pics.

  41. Marissa says:

    Congrats to them, Nando seems like he’ll be a sweet and doting father.  Maybe O had a planned induction since they said “planned”.

  42. Lana says:

    Congratulations to them. Lovely news. Wish baby to be healthy and happy.

  43. Mandy says:

    Congrats! Bet she’ll be a cutie!

  44. Kate says:


    Congratulations to happy couple! OMG I’m so happy for them! But still can’t believe Fernando became a father ohh

  45. lorcampo says:

    planned could mean she had an induced labor, which is not unusual especially if the doctors think the baby is getting too big, or if she is way past due. Parents can also get a doctor to induce labor for convenience sake as well, maybe if Nando had to report to 'pool soon and obvi Olalla can't travel… I'm not a doctor but I come from a big extended family lol… no matter CONGRATS FERNANDO AND OLALLA!!!

  63. Macacinha says:

    Congrats to the familia Torres! I’m waiting on baited breath for a name. My thoughts on the planned birth are that it could equally have been an induced one as a c-section.

  64. Merel says:
