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.

People Are Actually Giving Their Children Honest-To-God Coronavirus-Inspired Names

Inspiration truly does strike at the weirdest moments.

Even in a pandemic.

According to reports from India a couple by the name of Preeti and Vinay Verma, chose to name their newborn twins Covid and Corona in an effort to remember the current pandemic. But it’s not just the parents of India finding inspiration in these dark times. A report out of the Philippines revealed that a pair of parents named their child Covid Bryant– an homage to both the virus and the recently deceased basketball legend Kobe Bryant.

Speaking about their new baby names Preeti Verma said she wanted to ease anxieties related to the names.

“We wished to ease the anxiety and fear associated with these words and also make the occasion memorable,” Preeti said in an interview.

Of course, there’s no doubt COVID-19 will be a defining virus for people across the globe and for generations as well. Speculation that the pandemic will spark a “coronial” generation gained quite a bit of hype. The Brookings Institution, however, estimated that the U.S. birth rate will decline by another 7-10%  this coming year which equates to nearly 300,000 to 500,000 less births. A Guttmacher Institute survey found that “34% of women said they wanted to get pregnant later or wanted fewer children because of the COVID-19 pandemic.”

But what about the babies that are being born during the pandemic? It turns out the pandemic might actually be inspiring more and more of their names. A survey, conducted by ChannelMum.com, recently revealed that 43% of parents believe the coronavirus outbreak will affect what they will name their newborns. The survey also found that 7% of parents have had a change of heart on what to name their children as a result of the pandemic.

For some less morbid name inspiration check out some of the best monikers inspired by lockdown that we could find, below!

Vida

Spanish for “life” which is pretty sweet and optimistic.

Anthony

Some parents might opt to name their children after the voice of wisdom during these strange times.

Cora

Less intense and direct than Corona.

Vira

Vira means “hero” in Hindi.

Tina 

Short for quarantine.,

Demi 

Short for pandemic.

Hope

Much more optimistic in these strange times.

Solita

Spanish for solitude, which a lot of us are experiencing right now.

Stella

Which means “light” and also draws hope.

Cristiano Ronaldo Tests Positive For Covid-19 As Europe Faces Relentless Second Wave

Cristiano Ronaldo Tests Positive For Covid-19 As Europe Faces Relentless Second Wave

Europe is facing a growing second wave of infections from Covid-19. As the virus beings to spread across the continent again, countries are bringing back restrictions to protect the health of their citizens. Cristiano Ronaldo, famed soccer player, is the latest celebrity in Europe to fall victim to the virus.

Cristiano Ronaldo is the latest celebrity to contract Covid-19 as a second wave sweeps across Europe.

Countries throughout Europe are experiencing fresh spikes in Covid-19 cases. In the U.K., the number of cases has quadrupled. The number of cases there are now higher than they were in March when the country went on lockdown. However, according to reports, countries in Europe are trying localized restrictions to prevent new nationwide shutdowns in response to the second wave.

European soccer leagues were among the first sports in the world to resume activities.

The various European soccer leagues resumed practices and games in early June with some restrictions and new protocols to limit the spread of the virus within the sport. One of the first things put in place to protect the players was a staggered training schedule to limit the amount of contact between teammates.

“Cristiano Ronaldo was released from national team duties after a positive test for COVID-19; he will not face Sweden. The Portuguese international is doing well, without symptoms, and in isolation,” read a statement from the team. “Following the positive case, the remaining players underwent new tests this Tuesday morning, all with a negative result, and are available to Fernando Santos for training this afternoon, in Cidade do Futebol. The game, counting for the qualification phase of the League of Nations, is scheduled for Wednesday in Alvalade.”

Fans have a lot of faith that Covid-19 doesn’t stand a chance in Ronaldo’s body.

Soccer fans were so excited to see the sport come back. It is a good release and escape from reality, which is something we all desperately need nowadays. Losing one of the greatest players of the game is pretty devastating. One of the greatest things about sports is being able to watch the best truly perform, even if they are on the opposing team and delivering you a loss.

People are ready to see the man come back in better form than he left.

Sure, Ronaldo will be back to play soccer for the fans. However, there is a lot that we still don’t know about the long-term impact of contracting Covid-19.

Red Sox pitcher Eduardo Rodriguez confirmed in July that he was dealing with heart inflammation. The issue caused him to miss some of the restarted, abridged season. The inflammation was because of a Covid diagnosis earlier in the year. Two months later, Rodriguez was cleared by doctors to start walking and partaking in other physical activity because of his heart condition.

Some sports fans are sounding a small alarm to let people know that they should not base their own health decision on Ronaldo’s outcome.

A lot of high-profile people have contracted Covid-19. The ones with the best health insurance and healthcare have come out of their Covid diagnoses with good results. President Donald Trump recently made remarks telling people not to fear Covid after his infection prompting responses from scientists and doctors rebuking his claims.

Covid-19 is far from over. The world is bracing for a second wave, which could be deadlier than the first. Instances of re-infections are climbing with the first reported case in the U.S. happening in Nevada. The second infections have been worse than the first. Be careful. Stay vigilant. Wear a mask to protect your family and friends.
