Gareth Bale's baby boy in Champions League onesie

Gareth Bale no doubt broke out the old "love heart" celebration on Tuesday morning as he and fiancee Emma welcomed their third baby into the world.

Indeed, the Bale clan introduced everybody to little Axel Charles, who was born in hospital in Madrid in the early hours.

The couple already have two daughters, Alba and Nava, who are five and two years old respectively.

Of course, with a name like Axel, we can only assume that Bale is a huge Guns 'N' Roses fan -- and that "Slash" was deemed inappropriate for a newborn.

And is that a Champions League onesie? Talk about starting the lad early!
