Harry Maguire's Wife Gives Birth Nine Months After England's Win Over Colombia

Harry Maguire's Wife Gives Birth Nine Months After England's Win Over Colombia

Last summer was one for the ages; the sun never seemed to set, beer gardens were always full and more importantly, England were bringing it home.

Well, nine months on from the side's dramatic penalty shootout victory over Colombia, defender Harry Maguire and his partner Fern Hawkins have celebrated the birth of their daughter. (Seems it wasn't just the fans who were celebrating that night.)

The footballer announced the fantastic news on his Instagram account, posting a photograph of him holding his daughter's hands.

The picture came with the caption: "Welcome Lillie Saint Maguire."

Since the news broke, teammates and friends have been sending their congratulations to the couple.

And referencing England's dramatic World Cup win, one fan joked: "Exactly 9 months to the day since we beat Colombia - Harry you're our hero."

Responding to the well-wishers, the England star said: "Thanks everyone, both Fern and Lillie doing great."

New mum Fern also shared the adorable picture, writing: "A little project I have been working on for the past 9 months. Lillie Saint Maguire. You have stolen our hearts my precious angel xox"

It's nice to see some good come out of last year's tournament. As you all know England didn't manage to finish the job and bring football home.

Following their victory over the South American outfit, Gareth Southgate's men beat Sweden 2-0 before crashing out to Croatia in the semifinals. (If only Harry Kane had squared that ball, eh).

But that was then and this is now, Harry Maguire's had a kid and England are currently in the middle of trying to qualify for the European Championships next year.

Sadly it's not all been good news, with players subjected to racist abuse during their 5-1 win over Montenegro.

Speaking to ITV following the match, Southgate said: "I definitely heard abuse at Danny Rose when he got booked at the end of the game...We'll make sure that's reported officially. It's not acceptable."

Asked whether Sterling also heard abuse, the manager was unclear, saying: "I'm not sure yet. I had a quick chat with Danny because I heard what happened there. I've not had chance to speak with Raheem yet.

"Whatever happens we'll report it."
