Chicharito Announced In A Gender Reveal Party That He Is Having A Chicharito Of His Own

Our favorite Mexican imported futbolista — Javier “Chicharito” Hernández — made a massive announcement via social media yesterday. The West Ham United Football Club forward told the world that he and his girlfriend are having a Chicharito of their own. Obviously fans are super excited for a new baby to join the roster and here’s how it all went down.

Chicharito and his Australian girlfriend announced they are having a baby boy.

The announcement comes just a couple of months after the couple went public with news that they were expecting a baby. The couple seems to have been going strong since late last year.

The couple did a baby gender reveal via a balloon popping — which is much safer than starting a fire. They had friend and family nearby to see whether the balloon would pop out blue or pink confetti.

Of course Chicharito had to let all of his Twitter followers know as well.

Honestly, everyone let out a little excited scream when they first read this news. Who couldn’t be excited for the same Chicharito that captured all of our hearts and his growing family?

Soon we will have our very own Chicharito dad jokes ready. We won’t be able to stop double tapping all of the wonderful dad and son photos that will fill out feeds. We needed this so much that it kind of takes us all by surprise with how happy we are.

Chicharito’s girlfriend is 24-year-old Sarah Kohan who’s an Instagram model and travel blogger with more than 1.3 million followers.

“Mother and son from the moment I found out I was pregnant I knew you were going to be a little boy… I just felt it,” she wrote on Instagram. “So blessed to be your mum!!! Keep kicking away in my belly.. you are so loved, and we can’t wait to meet you when you’re ready.”

Chicharito also expressed his love for his baby momma on Instagram: “You’re gonna be an excellent mom for our baby. You’re amazing. Never stop believing in yourself. You can do anything you put in your mind. Thank you for everything.”

The news came as a total surprise to some Chicharito fans.

It does feel like it came out of nowhere, but the parents did announce when they were pregnant. This must just be someone who is still in denial that Chicharito has found someone else to have babies with. It is legit heartbreaking to so many people. Or maybe it is just jealously disguised as confusion and grief? Who knows.

Some are ecstatic that the legacy of Chicharito’s futbol family will live on hopefully through his baby boy.

As Univision reports, Chicharito comes from a long line of futbol players including Tomás Balcázar, and his father Javier ‘Chícharo’ Hernández. We all know how it goes in Latino families. If one person does something, everybody after needs to find their way into that same path.

This is the same whether or not your grandfather was a doctor, athlete, farmer, etc. We are expected to follow their lead. However, we all know that some people won’t and we hope that Chicharitito doesn’t follow the other path.

Legit, fans are already planning the little boy’s future.

There you have it. A long line of strong and fierce futbolistas in one family. This is something we should all be getting behind. Who doesn’t want to see a true dynasty form with the love and face of Chicharo, Chicharito, and the inevitable Chicharitito.

People on social media were overjoyed to know Chicharito will have a little pea of his own who may very well be a futbol legend just like his father and ancestors.

Chicharito’s little baby is already threatening future teammates. To be quite honest, we aren’t really that surprised. After all, the mom did tell the baby to kick away so it seems like he is already in training. Good for him. Starting early to make sure the legacy remains.

But what will we call this Chicharito Jr?

There’s already a Chícharo, and a Chicharito, but this little baby can’t be Chícharitito, can he?

Trick question. Of course, he can be Chicharitito. Why would anyone be against giving the little baby such an adorable nickname. Are you jealous that he has the most adorable baby nickname?

A future Chivas in the making.

The pressure is already on the little tyke. He is going to have some tough choices to make as soon as he joins the world. Let’s all hope that he knows what he is doing and, obviously, get the support of his family.

Low key, we are all rooting for him already. We know that he is going to excel at anything he does.

Dad Shaves Baby’s Head While Mom Was Sleeping And We Think A Latina Abuelita Had Something To Do With It

Dads, you have to love them, especially when they’re left to rule the house when mom’s away. While they generally try their hardest, some dads can be big kids and the house will essentially remain unsupervised by a responsible adult. This mom learned that the hard way after she handed over the torch of responsibility to dad while she took a little nap. She woke up to find that dad had shaved off the baby’s hair and her reaction is priceless.

This video proves that sometimes you just can’t trust a Latino dad alone with the children.

New mom Jasmin Aileen Valero, wanted to catch up on some sleep after the exhausting task of taking care of her newborn baby. Dad, Joshua Luevanoz, was entrusted with watching over baby Jazlyn, while mom took a little nap. To Jasmin’s surprise, she woke up to find out that dad had shaved Jazlin’s entire head of hair, leaving their newborn looking like a little diaper-wearing kiwi.

Mom clearly didn’t expect to wake up to such a surprise. Suffice it to say, she wasn’t happy.

The Californian family shared the video of Jasmin being given the shock of a lifetime and the internet loved it, except for a few viewers going as far as to call it ‘child abuse.’

Jasmin had only just woke up when Joshua handed her the baby and began filming. Next thing you know, he’s pulling a little blanket off Jazlyn’s head to reveal their newly bald baby. Jasmin’s reaction is one of true surprise or horror if you will. “Why’d you do that?” she asks holding back shocked laughter and tears. Many news outlets have reported that dad shaved the baby’s head as a prank. But if you grew up Latino, you know that in a Latino household, shaving a baby’s head is no prank, it’s serious business and there’s bound to be a group of elders putting pressure on the new parents to rid the child of his or her hair, for the sake of tradition. 

 Behind every bald baby, there’s an Abuelita or tía telling new parents everything about the millenary tradition of shaving the baby’s head.

“Is shaving the newborn baby’s hair necessary for his hair to grow stronger?” 

The Latino tradition of shaving the baby’s hair is true and old. Many call it: pelar, rapar, rasurar or afeitar al bebé. It’s a tradition widely spread throughout many Hispanic countries. I can confirm that it’s a common practice in Venezuela, Colombia, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Spain, Ecuador, and Mexico. Why do crazy moms, abuelas —and unsuspecting dads as it turns out shave the baby’s hair? According to tradition, the new hair will grow thicker, more evenly, and beautiful. 

Experts explain that shaving a baby’s hair will not make it thicker or change its texture. Baby hair changes depend on the normal development of the child, and his or her genetic make-up. Where this tradition started, I wouldn’t know, trying to find out would be like trying to trace back the origin of ‘el cucuy, ‘nobody knows, it’s just been a tradition for centuries and centuries. There’s no information explaining where we picked up this idea from. But it is, unfortunately for this mom, still a very common practice. 

Latinos aren’t the only peoples who shave off little innocent babies’ heads. Muslims do it too, perhaps this is where the tradition started?

Surprisingly, Latinos aren’t the only people who believe in this magic capillary legend. Shaving the baby’s head on his seventh day on earth is a common practice amongst Sunnah Islamic followers. They believe that only boys should have their heads shaved as “a means to drive them closer to Allaah.” If we keep in mind that many Latino traditions originate from Spain, which was occupied by Muslims for centuries, maybe that has something to do with how all the shaving started.
