Peterborough defender Gabriel Zakuani is so obsessed with Twitter, that he has named his son Trendy. SMH. Zakuani picked the name after the trending topics feature on the social networking site and now the poor little mite is stuck with it forever!
The 25-year-old footballer, who has 7000 followers, told The Sun that is wasn’t only Twitter that helped him give his son the unique name, but also his baby mother, Shanice Petrie’s, job in fashion. He said
People have asked if his name is because of ‘trending topics’ on Twitter. Maybe it was in the back of my mind. The official reason was she [his mother] wanted something to reflect that[her job]. But it was me who came up with Trendy. Everyone has been giving me banter. The gaffer Darren Ferguson wouldn’t believe me. He kept asking me what it really is. But Trendy definitely suits him. I’m sure it’ll grow on everybody.
Somebody call social services!
