Thoughts & Prayers: Paul & Hayley Gallagher
Sad news was revealed late this evening regarding Leicester City’s Paul Gallagher and his wife Hayley’s newborn twins. Unfortunately the couple lost their son, Luca James, while his twin sister, Ava Amelie, was reportedly under careful watch at an undisclosed special care hospital unit.
You may remember Hayley making headlines in March 2011 when she and several other footballers’ wives from the Midlands trekked across China’s Great Wall to raise money for The Meningitis Trust. She championed the charitable cause in honour of her brother-in-law who died from the disease as a young boy, and was joined by Becky Doyle, wife of Birmingham City goalkeeper Colin Doyle, who also encountered the disease after the Doyle’s baby son, Liam, nearly died from meningitis in 2010.
Best wishes to the Gallaghers and our sincerest condolences go out to them.
