Real Madrid's winger Gareth Bale and fiancee Emma Rhys-Jones are blessed with a baby boy on Tuesday, May 8. The couple has two beautiful daughters, 5-year-old Alba Violet and 2-year-old Nava Valentina.

The Welsh star footballer took to social networking sites to announce this exciting news. He posted a very cute picture of his newly born son with the caption, "We are delighted to welcome a baby boy into our family this morning. Axel Charles Bale 08.05.18."

Wishes have poured in from all the sides and fans and followers have sent their wishes and love to the couple and baby Axel.

Where greetings have arrived from all the direction, few people have reacted to the unusual name that he has given to his newly born baby.

The name "Axel" is appearing a bit odd to many fans, it is looking like he has misspelled "Alex."

The 28-year-old is set to marry his childhood sweetheart later this year. Both have been together for almost 10 years after meeting while attending Whitchurch High School.
