Proud Papa: Victor Valdes
Congratulations are in order for Victor Valdes, who celebrated the birth of his first son, Dylan, yesterday. Granted paternity leave by Barcelona, he skipped yesterday’s practice witness the birth at Dexeus Hospital. Dylan weighed in at 3 kilos and is said to be healthy and doing well.
Does this feel a tad Ricky Martin to you? Well, it’s not quite like that, but all of the Spanish pubs are reporting that Vic was by his *partner’s* side during the birth. Not “wife”. Not “girlfriend”. Straight up baby mama. ’Tis sadly as we suspected. But who is she?
If you Google Image her name there are a plethora of possibilities ranging from halloween-costume-scary to there-goes-my-lunch. We want to believe he would choose a pretty model-gal like this one, but rumours combined with our stalkerish sixth sense say it’s more like the NSFW/possibly-an adult-entertainer one. At least that would explain why he kept her under wraps for so long.
His son’s birth rounds out a stellar season for Valdes who completed the first-ever Spanish treble and was named to our Elite Eleven Squad (to equal fanfare and dismay). We’re convinced he’d name the latter as his proudest achievement to date.
