Former footballer John Barnes has become a dad for the seventh time — his third with wife Andrea. Son Alexander was born on Sunday, November 7th — sharing the same birthday as his dad — and weighed 7lbs 3oz.
Despite Andrea going in to labour while John was live on Sky Sports watching the Liverpool V Chelsea game – he was in no rush to make a dash to the hospital. After being asked if he’d like to leave. He replied:
“I’ll stay for the second half.”
Soon after saying that he decided he’d better head off to the hospital to meet his new son with presenter Richard Keyes reprimanding him with:
‘Quite rightly. He should have gone earlier.’
Little Alexander joins brothers and sisters Jamie, 24, Jordan, 21, Jemma, 17, Jasmin, 13, Isabella, 5, and Tia, 3.
