Happy Christmas Baby

It’s Newcastle against Wigan on the telly tonight so the big news is that Mary, Victoria and John are the joint 8/1 favourite baby names with Paddy Power after the announcement that Kate Middleton is pregnant.

Next in the running is Diana and Frances at 9/1, with Philip, Anne and Charles all available at 10/1. Current long shots include 80/1 Chelsy, 100/1 Bradley and 250/1 Fergie.

Elsewhere, Paddy Power make it an unlikely 6/1 that the child will have ginger hair, with brown the current 13/8 favourite.

Weight wise, the 5/2 favourite is for the new arrival to be born between 7lbs and 7lbs 15oz, while Pippa and Prince Harry are leading the charge to be named godparents ahead of 25/1 David Beckham and 100/1 Victoria Beckham.

A spokesperson for Paddy Power said: “There’s very little to choose from between the top 10 or so names in the betting. The nation will wait with bated breath on the blighters name – but I’d imagine some of our punters will be paying closer attention than most.”
