Sometimes legends are made, sometimes legends are born, but very occasionally legends are made before they're born. Michelle Stepney, the daughter of football legend, Alex Stepney, the long time Goalkeeper for Manchester United, was expecting.
When Michelle of East Cheam was carrying her twin girls, little did she know that they had inherited their Grandfather's skills at football and would actually make a save before they were even born!
You see, Michelle had been carrying an undetected tumour in her cervix and they actually booted the life-threatening parasite out of her body. It dropped onto the floor just weeks before the twins were born.
Michelle told In Seine News:
"I am really proud of my girls for they've saved my life already - it's that Stepney thing you know; it's in our blood. I was feeling really bad one day and my babes were kicking for 'England' and then this big bloodied lump flopped out onto the floor.
"I thought I was having a miscarriage and I fainted; when I came round I found myself in a maternity ward and a kind nurse told me that the babies are OK and the blob was a suspected tumour which had been taken away for tests. I still can't believe it… you couldn't make this up!
"Their Granddad is chuffed too and keeps telling his mates at Man U. I've called one Alexia and the other Alexis in his honour. They're only one year-old darlings at the moment but are already being tipped to play for England in 2017."
