Welcome To The World Julia Granero Cocheteux!

31 Dec

It’s official! Pirata is a papi! He and his wife Marta welcomed a baby girl, Julia, a few days ago. Really wonderful news to end the year on. The notoriously private couple haven’t posted any pictures yet, but you know when/if they do that it will be something artsy, like a moody black and white shot of the baby’s finger or something. Marta did post some beautiful pregnancy shots though here and here. In fact, the only reason I heard about it is that Best of You Sports posted a congratulations to the happy family.

Congratulations to Esteban and Marta! With those parents, undoubtedly Julia will be gorgeous, smart and talented. (Wonder what Uncle Leiva got them for a baby present, eh mygypsyspirit?)

Back To Madrid, Accolades & Families

5 Aug


The team returned to Madrid after Wednesday’s win over Bayern Munich arriving home on Thursday. The game was fun but exhausted (the trip back seemed to take forever). Mygypsyspirit and I spent the following day recovering and hanging out. She left today so I’m getting back to work on things with a very quick catch up.  Continue reading

Bienvenido a la vida #miniNacho 👼🏼❤️

A post shared by María Cortés 💫 (@mcm1989) on

La Undecima wasn’t the only good thing that happened on Saturday – Nacho & Maria’s new baby arrived! They’ve only called him (I think it’s a him!) Mini Nacho so I’m guessing that they named him after his daddy – that would make him José Ignacio Fernández Cortes. Big sister Alejandra will now have a playmate. Congrats to the happy family.

But then there were two more surprises. First off, guess who got married? Continue reading

Satellite (10)While it was nice to end our year with a 3-1 win today, there were moments of sadness. First, no Pirata and most upsetting, Jailbait! tore his ACL for the third time and was carried off on a stretcher. I’m absolutely gutted for him. He’s like the Spanish Stu Holden. 😦 Continue reading
