Amidst constant rumors in the newspapers of player departures, how about confirmation of a new arrival, courtesy of Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane’s Twitter feed? Kane dropped the the big news that he and his girlfriend Kate Goodland are expecting their first child, which should arrive this January.
A Tropical Storm Warning in North London? In January? Global warming, amirite?
The parent in me says this is wonderful. Being a father myself, there’s nothing so exciting as being able to tell the world that you’re expecting your first child. The cynic in me notes (somewhat apologetically) that this means that Kane will probably be off the boil at some point in January due to sleep deprivation, leading to Spurs’ cataclysmic collapse and a last-week loss to Hull City that leaves us in fifth place behind Arsenal. THANKS, BABY.
In all seriousness, this is fantastic news. Mazel tov, Harry and Kate! Put your suggestions for in-utero names for the Kane-Goodland baby in the comments. The Carty Free masthead’s suggestion: El Niño/La Niña.
