ENGLAND striker Patrick Bamford is going to be a father.
The Leeds forward, 28, shared snaps with loved ones of his heavily pregnant model partner Michaela Ireland, 30.
The pair, dating for more than three years, cuddled her bump while Bamford gave it a kiss.
They are said to be expecting a girl in the new year.
One pal said: “Patrick is in heaven.
“It’s better news than scoring a dozen hat-tricks.”
Bamford netted for Leeds last week against Brentford after a lengthy injury lay-off.
But he picked up another injury and missed yesterday’s game against Chelsea.
The striker played in England’s 4-0 win over Andorra in August.
