Giggs expecting baby
Ryan Giggs
Giggs and his partner's baby is due in May
Manchester United footballer Ryan Giggs and his girlfriend are expecting their first baby, the couple have announced.

The 29-year-old Welsh International and his 24-year-old partner, Stacey Cook, said in a joint statement released on Saturday that they were delighted at the news.

"We cannot wait for the birth of our baby in May," they said.

The couple have known each other for 10 years and have been dating for a year.

500th game

The news emerged hours after Giggs played for United in their 4-1 FA Cup victory over Portsmouth on Saturday.

Cardiff-born Giggs joined Manchester United as a schoolboy.

Earlier this season he played his 500th game for the club.

He made his first team debut as a substitute against Everton aged 17 in 1991 and has won three English doubles with the club.

He made his Welsh debut the same year against West Germany.
