Offside: Baby boom in the Barça dressing room

Andres Iniesta became a father for the first time a year and a half ago, with the birth of Valeria, his daughter with Anna, whom he married this past weekend. With a number of parents already among the members of the Barcelona team, it is clear that Iniesta is not alone, and soon there will be even more blaugrana babies! Four Barça players will be welcoming new members of their families soon: Leo Messi, Victor Valdes, Jose Manuel Pinto, and David Villa.

One of the most commented upon news items this summer has been the confirmation by Messi of his future fatherhood. The best player in the world and his girlfriend Antonella Roccuzzo are expecting a child in November. Some sources claim that the baby boy will be named Thiago.

Goalkeeper Victor Valdes and his partner Yolanda Cardona are expecting their second child. Valdes’ son, Dylan, born in August 2009, has earned the affection of all the fans by his cute “performances” during Barça’s celebration parties.

Our other goalie, Jose Manuel Pinto, will also be a father for a second time soon. Meanwhile, David Villa, father of two girls, is expecting his third child.

Apart from the four confirmed pregnancies, the tabloids have speculated repeatedly in recent weeks about Shakira, girlfriend of Gerard Pique.
