Jude meets baby Jude

Diehard Blues fans Paige and James McGonnell found out they were having a baby boy on 31 August 2019.

Later that day, Jude Bellingham made his home debut and became the youngest ever Blues goal-scorer as he slotted home the winner against Stoke City.

Paige and James knew there and then that their boy had to be named after Blues’ Number 22. It was meant to be – baby Jude was even born on the 22nd.

Today, the two Judes were introduced to each other at the Trillion Trophy Training Centre.

Bellingham looked very comfortable as he cradled his youngest fan. To top it off, he signed the baby Bluenose’s hat, babygrow and a personalised pennant.

“This was an amazing experience for all three of us,” said Paige. “We cannot wait until baby Jude is a bit older and we can take him down to St. Andrew’s for the first time to cheer on the lads.”

See you there soon, young man!
