It was Christmas in the football world. The one time where players loved playing. Boxing Day were always the traditional fixture to play, it was one which the fans absolutely loved. I for one couldn’t wait and experience my first trip at the Emirates at Christmas.

“You ready?” I looked up and saw Mesut dangling his car keys in front of me. “I am ready” I smiled as he pulled me up from my seat on the sofa. “You look great baby” Mesut said as I blushed. “Mes you are so sweet. I don’t think I look that great. But it is sweet of you” I laughed as Mesut shook his head.

I walked to the car and Mesut opened the door for me like a gentlemen. “Thanks” I smiled at him. I loved football, but I wasn’t feeling up for todays game. I just wanted to stay in the warm with a mug of hot chocolate. I wasn’t feeling great, I couldn’t put my finger on why I felt so rubbish.

The car journey was pretty quiet. Mesut wasn’t saying much, he was pretty relaxed. I on the other hand, felt strange. I felt car sick which I never felt. Mesut must have noticed how I was feeling as he placed his hand on my thigh. “You okay? You don’t seem yourself” He gently asked me. I shook my head.

“I just don’t feel too good. I am not sure why” I sighed. “Oh sorry babe. I don’t like it when you feel great, we will be home soon.” Mesut smiled as I took a deep breathe. “Its okay. I should be fine” I mumbled as I placed my hand on top of his. Annoyingly we got the ground and Mesut wasn’t able to play due to getting 5 yellow cards meaning he was suspended.

I walked up to the stand to sit with the other girlfriends. “Hello” I said to Isabel, Nacho Monreal’s wife. “Hey sweetie” She smiled as she gave me a little squeeze. “You alright?” I nodded even though I didn’t mean it. “Good, is Mesut not playing today?” I shook my head. “No he’s suspended, been a naughty boy” I laughed.

Mesut come back and handed me in a cup of hot chocolate. “Here babe, hello everyone” Mesut waved to the other girlfriends and wives. “Thanks” I said as I sorted out my beanie hat. It was a great game, ended 2-1 against West Brom. It was a good game and a great win.

We were on the way home. “Mes, would you be able to pull over in the shops? I need to get something” I asked Mesut. “Yeah sure babe, you okay?” Mesut pulled the car over as I jumped out. I quickly bought a pregnancy test. I knew Mesut would want to know what was wrong. so I knew I needed to tell him.

“What did you get?” I showed him as he was half way through his sentence. “Oh you think you are then?” I nodded. “Yeah I haven’t been feeling great and we’ve been at it. I mean this would be the greatest Christmas present wont it” I said to Mesut. “It really would be. Wow” Mesut smiled the whole way home.

As soon as I got home I rushed to the bathroom to take the test. It took three minutes. “Mesut, will you look at it please?” I asked him politely. Mesut glanced at it. “We are going to be parents in 2017. I am so so proud of you” Mesut kissed the top of my head. “Wow, I am so shocked. You aren’t annoyed at the timing?” I asked him. “Never, you are holding my child never” I smiled as I kissed him again.
