Celebaby: A Christmas Baby And A Christmas Baby Hoax

29 December 2012

Bad boy of Strictly Come Dancing, Brendan Cole (although, I have to say, he does seem to have mellowed over the years) and his wife, Zoe welcomed their first child into the world on Christmas day!

He took to his Twitter account on Thursday and posted:

"My wonderful wife & I had the best Christmas present ever. Our baby daughter arrived on Christmas Day. Zoe & Baby doing great! Very precious."

Zoe followed along after, posting, "Thanks for all your wonderful messages. We're so thrilled and overwhelmed and so in love with our beautiful baby girl. Can't stop staring!"

There's no news, as yet, on a name for the new Cole addition - I can't see her being called something really weird and 'out there' though, neither Brendan or Zoe seem that way inclined.

The other baby news that broke over Christmas was the news that Shakira had given birth to her son.  Her boyfriend, Gerard Pique, took to his Twitter account and announced the news in Spanish:

"Ya ha nacido nuestro hijo! Estamos muy felices! Gracias a todos por vuestros mensajes!"  Which translates as: "Our son was born! We're very happy! Thank you all for your messages."

However, it turns out that this was a joke in honour of Dia de los Inocentes, which is the Spanish equivalent of our April Fool's Day.  He 'fessed up a few hours later, after the media and social networks went into overdrive, posting:

"It has a name! His name is Innocent! Happy Holy Innocents Day to all!"

Shakira is actually expected to have the baby next month and she hasn't made any comment on boyfriend's practical joke - I wonder whether she was amused or not..?  I don't think I would have been!
