'Kit's a boy!', says sock-er mom
Many parents have a number of measures planned out for their big day, when the inevitable trip to the hospital dawns after nine months of pregnancy.

While many consider what to wear when going into the delivery room, one woman took it a step further by kitting herself out in the shirt and socks of her favourite club, Torquay United FC.

Speaking to the Daily Mirror, Amy Smith, who lives in the Devon town, put her kit on shortly after going into labour before giving birth to 7lb 3oz Harry in her yellow and blue hosiery and shirt.

Commenting on the experience, Amy said: "We are really big fans. Our first date was at a Torquay United match.

"We had a Torquay United-themed wedding and Harry's first outfit is a Torquay United sleep suit. Some people think it's a bit fanatical."

Torquay United were promoted back into the Football League last year following a playoff final win against Cambridge United.
