Michael Brown's baby arrives.
Michael Brown's dream has come true and he will now be available for the Cup Final on Saturday.
His wife was due to give birth on 15th May but the new arrival came a week early as Brown was called away from the team hotel and therefore he missed the season`s final league game at Everton.
Last week Michael had told the press 'Hopefully, I won't have to (miss the final) - but babies aren't always born exactly on time as predicted, are they? We'll just have to wait and see but the missus will just have to be quick - or a little slow. Seriously, though, we are both looking forward to it and we've known for some time about the due date.'
Congratulations to all involved and to our many women readers I apologise that I do not know the sex, name or weight.
With all the injuries in the squad Brown being available is a major boost.
