A World Cup Baby Boom in Germany
The goal scoring average at the 2006 World Cup might not have been very high, but there was a lot of scoring off the pitch during the competition. Maternity wards in Germany are reporting that they are fully booked and are having to arrange extra beds for all the women expecting babies in April.
Midwife Barbara Freischuetz from Cologne said: “The women say that the baby is a souvenir from the World Cup. A product of the euphoria from the tournament.”
Most women who are expecting sons are planning to call them Lukas, Bastian and Michael.
What? There isn’t going to be a boom in kids name Ollie K too?
