Wayne Bridge and Frankie Sandford are parents to little Parker.
Frankie Sandford and footballer fiance Wayne Bridge have confirmed the arrival of their first child, a son named Parker Bridge. Frankie announced the news on Twitter today, telling followers, "Wayne and I are so proud to say our little boy Parker Bridge was born this morning," Frankie tweeted to confirm the news. "7bs 13oz. All doing well and absolutely besotted."
Parker Bridge. Now there's a man. He'll play in midfield for Fulham, obviously. It got us thinking, where does it rank on the all-time list of footballer's names for their children? There's some pretty awful ones - usually the work of Wayne Rooney - and we think young Parker Bridge might be one of the better choices.
Everyone's least favourite footballer Joey Barton named his son Cassius, after his boxing hero Muhammad Ali's original name. Ryan Giggs called his daughter Liberty, while Gareth Bale - who appears to have a severe lack of taste in anything but how to get a ball into a net - called his daughter Alba Violet Bale. AVB.

It’s all smiles in The Saturdays camp, with band mates piling on the congrats to Frankie Sandford who has revealed that she and footballer boyfriend Wayne Bridge are having their first child together!

We are both SO happy and can’t wait for his or hers arrival!" She joins her band pals Una Healy, who had a baby girl last year, and Rochelle Humes, who is expecting her first child soon. They were among the first to congratulate Sandford on her news, with Humes – who is married to Marvin of the soon-to-be-breaking-up JLS – writing "@FrankieTheSats yay news is out!!! Can’t wait to be an auntie again. And for my lil one to have a partner in crime xx :-) congrats xx." We’re not sure if being in a group together really means you can officially be an Auntie, Rochelle, but fair play to you for your enthusiasm. Healy, who is married to rugby player Ben Foden, wrote "So happy and excited for our @FrankieTheSats and Wayne’s baby news!! X"
Other Saturdays members Mollie King and Vanessa White both tweeted too, with King writing: "Soooo unbelievably excited for @FrankieTheSats and Wayney! Bring on the baba! Sats Juniors is really coming together xxx." Vanessa White added: "Congrats to @FrankieTheSats & Wayne on their big news! Xxx."

Frankie Sandford has accepted Wayne Bridge's proposal, despite assuring the press that they would not be getting engaged anytime soon.
Frankie Sandford and Wayne Bridge don't need to worry about the press reporting on their on-off relationship anymore, because they're getting married. The Saturdays singer excitedly revealed the news on her Twitter page, posting a picture of the former Manchester City footballer kissing her on the cheek as she flashed a pretty huge diamond engagement ring on her wedding finger.
Sanford, 24, uploaded the image to Instragram with the caption, "Guess what?!!!" - thousands of fans gave their blessing. The couple have been dating on-and-off since December 2010 and just last month had to slam rumors of an impending engagement. Frankie told OK! Magazine at the time, "He's definitely not going to do it. Everyone else is thinking about it more than I am." Well, he has Frankie, so you're going to just have to deal with being married to a multi-millionaire footballer. It's not clear when or where Wayne proposed, though Sanford and her band-mates attended the Grand National meeting at Aintree racecourse on Thursday, where they opened the three-day meeting with a special live performance.
Bridge is currently on loan at Brighton and Hove Albion from Manchester City, though the left-back could be heading to the south coast permanently if his side win promotion to the Premiership this season. Gus Poyet's team currently sit in the final playoff position.
