Watson becomes a dad

2011-03-22 07:00

Cape Town - Bath flank Luke Watson has announced that he and his wife Elaine are celebrating the birth of their first child.

Watson, who will be leaving Bath for the Eastern Province Kings before the 2011 Rugby World Cup, confirmed the couple’s good news on Twitter, writing: Noa Grace Watson was born at 1am on the 22nd of March! She is healthy and beautiful. She is the greatest gift I could ever physically hold!!

In his next Tweet he paid tribute to his wife: Elaine is up and about and doing great! She was an absolute warrior and fought her way through it! She became my hero last night. So proud.

Watson had confirmed in November last year that they were expecting a girl and turned to Twitter yet again for suggestions of names.

    Does he know who the mother is?

      You are disgusting, you belong in "File Thirteen" (Largest Trash Can) that will accommodate you and your comment.

      bev - 2011-03-23 10:56

      It is you that has the Wedgie. Why ask such a stupid question? There have been many comments made by many why does Luke's comment have to stick so permanently in your small brain have you got nothing better to think about or dont you know how. Have you never said/done anything wrong in your life and perhaps regret it. Get a Life Everybody seems to move forward.

    Baie geluk Luke & Elaine.. Ek besef dat van my mede Suid-Afrikaners se mentaliteit maar laag is, maar met sommige van die kommentaar word 'n nuwe laagtepuint bereik.

      Oukoos - Toe hy die spingbok embleem afgekraak het en gese het hy will op dit kots and dat SA rugby deur n klomp Dutchman bestuur word - wat se dit van sy mentaliteit - Maar julle Stormers het mos almal dieselfde mentaliteit - Koppe in eie gat opgedruk. Geluk Puky.

      Yeah, also a big congrats to the Watsons' it must be a blessing having a child. I am certain they will be great parents. To the guys who keep on referring to yesteryears news, I also didnt like his comments, but in hindsights, a few years later, maybe he was referring to the situation in which he became a Springbok, rather thatn actually wearing the situation. Its like me, I want to be an MD one day, but if I get fast tracked unfairly and other people who deserves it more than I do get left behind, I might also want to puke on my new title. Keep things in perspective...!!! There is always 2 sides to each story. Do yourself a favor and follow the chap on Twitter, I guarentee you you will find a very humble and gratefull person on the other side who cares about all human beings equally...

      Balsucker(both eyes point north)...are you one of these oaks who married there sister?? Luke Watson has said a few bad things in his life but that does not make him a bad rugby player or a bad father.If i can remember clearly the last time he played the Bulls he made your loosies look like a bunch of kids.But that is typical the Northern mentality,if your balls are nott blue F%$# OFF

      patrickb - 2011-03-23 09:35

      Your message is in Afrikaans! Luke hates dutchmen, so he won't get your good wishes.

  • Grant beeton - 2011-03-23 09:34

    Well done Puke.... ask Bosasa for some of the family money!!

  • bev - 2011-03-23 09:41

    To All you Negative Morons, you are all Disgusting Bloody Idiots (nasty comments) so childish and have no respect for Human Beings big or small especially Luke's wife and Daughter. How can you call yourselves true South Africans, grow up and get a life, you are nothing but Scum for making unnecessary and hurtful comments. I pity any woman that finds each and everyone of you worthwhile or Attractive. Just remember pointing One (1) Finger at Someone there are Three (3) pointing back at You. If you have nothing worthwhile to comment then don't read the article, it just goes to show your inmature mentality. Luke and Elaine Congratulations on the Birth oy your Beloved Daughter Noa Grace, may she bring you Happiness and Lots & Lots of LOVE in the years to come. Take every opportunity to Enjoy and Teach her Good Qualities of Life.

      And you can hear the rest of Bev's speech at the Rivers Church on Sunday at 11h15................

      buzz - 2011-03-23 10:22

      Whats with all the capital letters there Bev? It looks funny. And shows that you can't think and type at the same time. Please try again. To Puke: well, hope Boa pukes on you, over and over.

      Jik - 2011-03-23 10:27

      Now where are those tissues?! Bev, get lost please.. try

      Straight Forward - 2011-03-23 10:34

      Bev, don't get your knickers in a knot. He chose to bad mouth the Spingbok emblem, now he deserves all the crap that he gets. Why does he not take his wife and new born and bugger off to another country.

  • Skiballas - 2011-03-23 10:40

    Ja, I wonder how many of these critics down here has never said a bad thing in their lives, have never regretted dropping the P-bom when they were mad at their wives, or dropped the K-word when a taxi cut him off. Oh wait, only the Springbok is sacred to them, so how many of you have shouted at the TV when the Boks were loosing and told them all they were useless, swearing at the captain and telling all who would listen on public profiles how much they thought the Boks sucked and what big loosers they were. So basically, all "faceless chickenssh#t hypocrites" who hide behind pseudonames on the internet. Fris sterk mannetjies daar waar niemand hulle kan sien nie...ten minste kan Luke n opinie, goed of sleg, gee. Hy is mans genoeg, al stem ek nie altyd saam met hom nie.

      Balsakhater - 2011-03-23 11:32

      Hiers my my nederige opinie - jy is net so groot drol soos wat hy is. Losers supports losers.

      Skiballas - 2011-03-23 11:44

      ag shame Balsakhater...hoe gaan ek slaap vanaand? My hele wereld het sopas inmekaar gestort toe ek hoor jy dink ek is n drol. Ek weet net nie hoe ek more gaan kan opstaan en met my lewe aangaan nie. Wag ek weet, ek gaan besluit om meer f%$ked up te wees en die Blou Bulle te support, vir my n Bloubul cherrie kry wat die P-bom drop in elke tweede sin wat by haar mond uitkom, my tjommies te dare om te kyk of hulle n bottel brannas in n uur kan opdrink en donuts te gooi op die laerskool se B-veld met hulle Ford Escorts....nee wag, ek het geen behoefte om soos jy te wees nie. So, as ek n drol is in jou opinie, dan vat ek dit as n kompliment.

      Balsakhater - 2011-03-23 14:06

      Sorry om you teleur te still - ek ry n Audi TT en waar die F%k ek jou aan my probeer vergelyk weet ek nie. Bietjie van daai papsak afklim d@@s. Jy kan nie op jou beste dag soos ek wees nie jou kommen Capy. Gaan vang nog a paar vissies om vir jou nog a papsakkie te koop. En jy sal nooit n Blou Bull kan wees nie you loser. Gaan suip verder en laat die manne verder rugby praat.

  • bev - 2011-03-23 11:23

    buzz you are such and idiot thinking and typing comes easy, but for you to understand the Caps is to make the Word/s/Sentence stand out so that Dickheads like you and the rest of the "BAD MOUTHERS" can understand. Learn to spell before making a comment "Boa" - Noa Grace. but then again I suppose you think it is funny given a nasty name. Big on paper, but small on a Rugby Field. patrickb Whats your problem why bring the Church into my comment, its the Truth and the Truth hurts, but then again what can one expect from those who have to have a swing at someone other than themselves such weaklings it makes one laugh. Jik So my comment hit home, great I got my point across to all each one of you wuzzies, that had nothing decent to say. "Get Lost" - South African needs people like me to counter attack your digusting comments about another South African especially his wife and child who have done nothing wrong to you and for that matter to any other South African. All of you are just a waste of space blowing hot air.

      patrickb - 2011-03-23 12:50

      To the "self appointed custodian of all mankind" Thank you Bev for showing us the way, what would we do without you!

  • Sammy - 2011-05-17 14:42

    I REALLY dont like your antics Luke but congrats on the little one! Late nights await you!!!

  • Patrick - 2011-05-17 17:46

    Congrats and welcome back Show the South African public what you have learnt from your time in the UK Sorry to say there are still allot of narrow minded brandy drinking Bulls supporters who will never grow up with the times and believe everything they read in the papers.
