The Baby Shower: What To Get For A WAG

Mamen and her hot preggers self

As we wind down our ‘Baller Baby Day coverage, we’d like to take a moment to highlight some items you may want to add to your shopping list. We’re assuming, of course, that you have several WAG baby showers marked in your diary for attendance?

For example, Nicola McLean, wife of Peterborough Utd player Tom Williams, recently announced that she’s four months pregnant with their second child, and Raul’s wife Mamen Sanz (above) is having their fifth child – and their first girl. You can’t expect them to make due with a gift certificate from Mothercare, practical and affordable as it may be.

So, call your bank manager, up your credit limit and let’s go shopping. We have a few suggestions on what to go into crippling amounts of debt over:

Actually, these would be good alternative hip flasks for mums tooDina Layla Van Persie
Dior Bottle (£36/$60; available in Pink and Blue)

Peasants and those without black AmEx cards buy Avent baby bottles. Only the true nouveau riche understand that a designer logo-emblazoned feeding bottle is a necessity.

Travel case is included – making this gift cost-efficient and extremely practical.

Bonus: we think these would make a rather fetching brandy flask for mum, too. But that’s probably wrong.

Bigger than our flat in LondonCarly and Joe Cole
Silver Cross Balmoral Pram (£1,800/$2,995)

Well-parented bubbas have needs. You know, like being pushed around in a plush baby carrier that’s larger than most people’s flats. Custom, hand-painted details, a plaque of authenticity and leather suspension straps are just a few reasons the Coles need to own this. Plus, who wouldn’t want to be having this much fun?

Oh, and in case you don’t understand the cost: it’s a statement. “The unmistakable sign of success.” Ie, you couldn’t possibly love your baby if you make them ride around in anything less than this.

We need to see Nora's little baby bread loaves in these shoes. Stat.Nora Dominguez Torres
Juicy Couture Sporty Ballet Flat

From the label that initiated the WAGs-in-leisurewear craze in the UK, ‘ballers can start their baby girls off on the right foot with these soccer-inspired striped ballet flats in an eye-blinding bright pink. We need to see Nora’s little bread loaves freshly baked and popping out of these shoes.

It's the good stuffFor Mamen Sanz or Louise Owen
La Mer The Eye Concentrate (£100/$165)

With seven kids already between them, these two mums can’t be getting any sleep as it is, so let’s at least get them hooked up and prepped for when the new babies arrive.

They deserve the best, and this is the good stuff. Just listen to the product promises: lines and wrinkles, dark circles and puffiness are dramatically dissolved as skin looks forward to a brightly luminous bank account and future.

We were so deprived as childrenThe Gerrards/The Lampard girls/The Rooneys/OK, we want one too
Fantasy Coach (£28,000/$47,000)

Every posh tot needs an abode inspired by a Disney Fairytale. Cue the moderately priced princess carriage that is sure to inspire venomous rage and blinding jealousy amongst all children that visit your home. Owning this coach will make your children better people. Fact.

Don’t forget the boys: there’s also a Pirates Hideaway Tree House that will help work off all the excess Jammie Dodgers sugar high.

    I know I’m a few years past being a toddler, but that Disney Princess fantasy carriage thing makes me jump up and down with squealing glee…me want one mommy!

  2. Nanou's Blues says:

    I WANT that fantasy coach! And babies from Lamps, eventually… Oh… *sigh* wouldn't it be great? Yeah… I keep on dreaming…

    And about that Silver Cross Balmoral Pram… Errr… Well… Nothing more to say. No, really.

  3. Julia says:

    I always get so damn depressed when I see Mamen. She is fuckin gorgeous, she married the sexiest man alive (who might just be one of the wealthiest as well), and now she’s going to have even more beautiful children, because really… those little boys. I’d like to be younger by years just to date them.

  10. FootballerChick43-&q says:

  12. Alisha says:

    What about Berbs and Dea?

    • Regiane says:

      Yeah, what about them Kickette? Leaving our Berba and his little angel Dea (loved the name, btw) behind is NOT an option!!! You gotta fix it!!!

  13. NandoRama says:

    I would have bet my life that a .jpg titled 'fantasy-coach' on Kickette would be of Pep Guardiola.
