A new dad from Aberdare who followed Wales' incredible run to the semi-finals of Euro 2016 has named his son after the star player who helped get them there.
26-year-old Chris Perry admitted he loves Wales and Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale and was in France for every match in the finals.
But his dream year got even better when partner Tracy Cann ended 2016 by welcoming a new baby boy.
Chris, who also has seven-year-old daughter Reece and works as a groundsman, welcomed Bale Perry on New Year's Eve.
We have already had a beautiful summer thanks to Chris Coleman's Welsh team. But to be able to have a son born in the same year and name it after the best Welsh player of all time makes it so special. We were overjoyed to know we were having a baby boy just before the Euros started. I think all fathers would one day like to think their sons could perform in a Welsh shirt and make the fans happy like Bale and company did this summer.

Events are taking place in Cardigan today as the town temporarily changes its name to 'Jumper'.
The name has been changed ahead of charity Save the Children's annual Christmas Jumper Day tomorrow.
This morning, the local community gathered to watch Mayor Clive Davies announce the name change and accept an official framed jumper from Mary Powell-Chandler, head of Save the Children Wales.
Local businesses, primary and secondary schools and the town castle have also officially changed their names to include 'Jumper', while local streets have been adorned with Christmas decorations.
It's the first time the mid-Wales town has changed its name.
