Dad-of-three Michael Owen adding to squad with new baby

Wednesday September 30, 2009

England and Manchester united footie ace Michael Owen is "absolutely delighted" that he and wife Louise are expecting their fourth child together.

The couple - who have been dating since high school - are already parents to Gemma Rose, six, James Michael, three, and one-year-old Emily May.

"Michael and Louise have always been desperate to have a massive family," says a friend of the family.

"Louise is really excited but she's persuaded Michael not to ask if it's a boy or a girl. She wants it to be a surprise."

And it may not be the last addition for the happy couple who - according to their pal - apparently: "want enough children to field their own five-a-side footie team!"

The new bundle of joy may come during a summer of celebrations for Michael, who is hoping to make the England team for next year's World Cup.
