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?

Yolanda Cardona.

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.

    Can't wait to see the bubba, can't fail to be cute (unless mamma is a real minger). Dylan's quite a common name over here in the UK but must be dead unusual in Spain so good on him (love unusual but not kooky names for babies).

    Wikipedia calls the mother his girlfriend but I know they're not always right.

    Wonder if they'll do a Nando and Olalla and introduce Dylan (and mama) to the world at the hospital steps.

    You suspect he paid a surrogate mom to have his baby? Isn't that what Ricky Martin did?

    Do you think there's a tape of the "making of". Hee, bad joke.

    (When I read this for the first time I only got "Ricky Martin, partner, adult-entertainer". So I thought a surrogate mother/ porn star had given birth to his and his male partner's baby.)

    Congrats to him/them! Glad Pep didn't fine him for missing work. :)

    Congrats! Dylan is a gorgeous name for a baby…one of the ones of my short-list for when/if I have a baby.
