Andre Ayew's girlfriend gives birth to a baby girl

Published on: 26 October 2011

Ghana midfielder Andre 'Dede' Ayew has become a father for the first time.

The Marseille winger's girlfriend gave birth to a baby girl at a posh hospital in France two weeks ago, it has emerged.

The identity of his French woman is not known yet but she is said to be 'a very beautiful woman', friends of the Ghanaian superstar have told GHANAsoccernet.com

Dede shed tears of joy as he saw his 7lb 10oz daughter.

The proud father announced the birth to his mother by telephone while his father legend Abedi Pele was believed to have been in France to support new father and mother.

The name of the baby girl has not been made public yet.

Proud grandfather Abedi is said to be "over the moon" at becoming a grandfather again.

His first son Rahim Ayew, who plays for Belgian side Lierse, has a baby boy who is said to be keen on football to join the long line of the Ayew family to take to the game.

    It's so interesting that maybe 60-70 percent of Ghana's population claim to be christians if not more whereas 30 percent are Muslims if not less,but look at what we are glorifying over here.The word of God says Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach( shame,disgrace) to any people. Prov.14:34.People of God let's stop glorifying sin,no matter who does it.God bless

    hey holyman! GOD WILL NIETHER APPROVE OF YOU REFERRING TO THIS NEW BORN BABY AS A SIN. NOW THINK ABOUT THIS THE FACT THAT ABEDI WENT TO SEE THE WOMAN AND THE BABY COULD MEAN BOTH FAMILIES KNOW EACH OTHER AND THAT IS WHAT MATTERS NOT PIIPO PIIPO WEDDING. OR MAYBE YOU JUST DONT TAKE KINDLY TO THE WORD 'GIRLFRIEND' ? MAYBE GHANASOCCERNET SHOULD HAVE SAID 'FIANCEE'. ITS YOUR IGNORHANT JUDGEMENTAL CHARACTER THAT I HATE!

    it is unfortunate why ghanaians on this forum can congratulate the Act of Fornication. I like dede's footballing skills but cannot accept his immoral behaviour which has resulted in a baby. certainly walking in the sins of his father when an extra marital affair brought Rahim. The baby is welcome but the father should learn to honour God. I don't think Islam or Christianity would tolerate such shameful character. The comments of congratulations is an indication of how low our morals are in this country and no wonder the comments that are made on this platform is absolutely abhorrent.

    Who cares about embarrassment, when you feel ready to have kids then you do. Why should you be worried about what others think? Are you trying to please people or yourself? Life is about choices, so if you choose to have kids early or late then that's your personal choice and not others!

    Is Andre Ayew a muslem?Abedi is a useless father.he claims to be muslem and yet did not teach train his kids according to the Islamic tenets.What was he doing in France instead of his wife Maha?.No wonder Andre comes to Ghana and fools the Ghanaian girls.Like father like son.

    its better to start now becuz anybody who gives birth at 40 will be like grandfather to his own child becuz ppl might ask kojo, is that ur grandpa,as answer kojo will say,no he is my father.to avoid this kind of embarassment its better to give birth early.latest by 30 yrs.well done dede ayew..

    He dat is saying he is pure n sinless can keep throwing stones of querries n judgement @ dis young fada. FORNICATION is a sin, but i dont think welcoming Jehovahs creation wit congratulatory Remarks means we r promoting sin n wld go to hell. Do u rememba david and bathsheba sins n dier blessed child solomon? The isrealites chastised david vigourasly! but always rememba dat as HIGH as the HEAVENS r above the earth, dats how Gods thoughts r ABOVE we humans. Glory b 2 God for His Goodness upon the Ayews. @least he has chosen 2 b Right b4 GOD dan Man by not aborting

    @Kwame NaaGbewa.The act is called fornication, according to the Scriptures,since they are not married, but the result of the act is the baby which happens when the woman is at her heat period and she meets a man,automatically the woman will conceive,it does not mean the child is from the Devil or from God.The only thing they need to do is repent,ask for forgiveness and do the right thing that is get married.Stay blessed

    'The identity of his French woman is not known yet but she is said to be ‘a very beautiful woman’, friends of the Ghanaian superstar have told GHANAsoccernet.com' The most senseless part of this article. If the identity of the baby mother is not known, who in the world cares how she might look? On topic: Congrats with the newborn!
  • HOLY MAN says:
    October 27, 2011 06:17 pm
    You are free to insult me. You would go to hell with an attitude like this. Repent you need Christ in your life. Just because you don't have reverence for God you are bound to give in to immorality and all forms of evil. Repent my brother and you shall be saved. Would God approve of your comment? if you judge yourself you shall not be judged.
