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?)

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

Would that picking one's team was as easy as picking one's shoes

Would that picking one’s team was as easy as picking one’s shoes, eh?
