Harry Maguire’s Fiancée Gives Birth Exactly Nine Months After England's Win Over Colombia

Harry Maguire and fiancée Fern Hawkins have broken their silence by announcing to the world the birth of their new child.

The 26-year-old Leicester City centre-back revealed on Wednesday morning the arrival of Lillie Saint Maguire.

Taking to Instagram, Hawkins posted a touching photo of their newborn holding her hand along with Maguire's.

She also captioned her post with the following: "[Here's] a little project I have been working on for the past nine months.

"Lillie Saint Maguire. You have stolen our hearts, my precious angel."

Of course, there have been many out there quick to congratulate the couple.

"How have you managed to keep it so quiet with you both in the public eye? Amazing. Congratulations to you both. Wonderful news," one Instagram user wrote.

Someone else said: "Congratulations, Fern and Harry! Love the name."

A third wrote: "Awww, amazing news! Congratulations to you both and welcome to the world little lady."

A fourth added: "How lovely that you both got to enjoy this special journey privately, congratulations."

Of course, the birth of Lillie comes exactly nine months after England won on penalties against Colombia in last summer's World Cup in Russia.

It was also that same match where Maguire and Hawkins were snapped together for THAT photo, which would later be used for some hilarious memes.

Congrats, Harry and Fern!
