Harry Kane’s pregnant fiancée sets up giant WIG-WAM in their garden to watch his World Cup heroics complete with TV, bunting and posters… (and the event even doubles up as her baby shower)

  • Harry, 24, has already scored five goals in two games to become something of a national treasure
  • Fiancée Katie previously revealed she was unable to watch the game in Russia and was instead watching from home with their 18-month-old daughter Ivy
  • Katie, 25, is thought to be just weeks from her due date and has been sharing pictures of her bump on social media
  • Guests enjoyed a gold-leaf cake, a pram-themed fruit bowl, ‘Baby Kane’ cake pops and alcohol-free drinks
  • She put up posters of her man, with the words, ‘he’s one of us’ as well as patriotic bunting 
  • England and Belgium will play in the World Cup Group G game on Thursday 
  • During England’s sensational 6-1 win over Panama, captain Harry Kane scored the first England World Cup hat-trick since Gary Lineker in 1986

Harry Kane’s heavily pregnant fiancée Katie Goodland turned her baby shower into a event to support her man, erecting a giant wig-wam in her garden to cheer on the World Cup hero.

The huge tent was covered in patriotic bunting and featured a widescreen TV inside so that Katie and her pals could watch the 6-1 victory from the comfort of their home, as she’s thought to be just weeks from her due date. 

Having recently called the goalscoring ace her ‘King’, little wonder as he has already scored five goals in two games, the 25-year-old put up posters of the sportsman in action, featuring the words: ‘He’s one of our own.’

There were also snacks and beers, adorned with England flags and huge comfortable chairs for guests to sit on.  

The footballer, 24, and his love are already parents to 18-month-old daughter Ivy and according to The Sun, Katie decided to stay at home with their little one, so that Harry could concentrate in Russia.

She posted a picture of the inside of the wig-wam on Instagram on Monday, writing: ‘Baby shower #gamesPJs&films #babyno2 #summerbaby.’

England and Belgium will play in the World Cup Group G game on Thursday in the Kaliningrad Stadium in Kaliningrad.

The stadium was opened in 2018 and will have the larger capacity of 35,212 for the World Cup, but will drop down to 25,000 after the tournament ends. 

The result will determine who finishes top of the group. The two teams are currently equal on goals but England have a higher fair play record.

Sweet: Katie has been sharing her pregnancy journey with her fans on social media, including her sweet little bump

Cute: She also shared a photo of their 18-month-old daughter Ivy, wearing an England shirt with ‘Daddy’ printed on the back.

Following England’s sensational 6-1 win over Panama, in which the captain Harry Kane scored the first England World Cup hat-trick since Gary Lineker in 1986, the mood in England has been positively ecstatic with many taking to Twitter to post that football is coming home.

England became only the fifth team ever to score five goals before half-time in a World Cup match, while Jesse Lingard’s screamer was ranked as the fifth-greatest England World Cup goal by Sportsmail.

And while football has not yet come home, it certainly was on at home, with 14.1 million people watching the match on BBC, with a peak audience share of 82.9 per cent, thought to be one of the largest in history. 


All in the details: At the themed baby shower, Katie gave a glimpse of some of the snacks on offer including a fruit bowl in the shape of a pram (left) and personalised ‘Baby Kane’ cake pops (right) 

Proud: Alongside a widescreen TV, Katie had put up posters of her man, with the words: ‘He’s one of our own’ and served alcohol free J2O drinks


Special treat: A specially made ‘Baby Kane’ cake was decorated in gold leaf and pink peonies (left) while posters of Harry proved just how proud Katie is of her goal-scoring ace, (right) 

The country went wild following the news of England’s 2-1 World Cup victory over Tunisia, kicking off their campaign in style.

And while many of the players wives and girlfriends were watching from the stands in Russia, Katie had revealed that she was ‘gutted’ to miss the big moment.

She praised her husband-to-be as the ‘King’ at the time, after he scored two goals to award England the win, but added that she was watching the match at home.

In one snap posted to her Instagram stories, Kate – who already has daughter Ivy with Harry – first wished her fiancé and the Three Lions the best of luck, sharing a snap of her TV as captain Kane shook hands with the referee.

She captioned the post with the words: ‘Let’s go captain come on boys.’

Her world: Before Harry went away, Katie also shared a sweet picture of him with Ivy, writing: ‘Good luck skip. We love you #russia2018 #threelions @harrykane’ 

The next snap came after full time, with Katie once again posting a snap of her TV while Kane was being interviewed about their victory.

Adding a King banner to the snap Katie also included a tag with the phrase ‘#YesBoys.’ 

Katie went onto reveal that she was unable to attend the match in person, as she posted another image of Kane’s elation after scoring the second goal in the dying minutes of injury time.

She wrote: ‘Gutted Ivy and I can’t be there! But watching from home! We [love] you!’

Harry and Katie are currently expecting their second child, after the Tottenham superstar confirmed the news on Twitter back in January.

He wrote: ‘Our beautiful Ivy is going to be a big sister! Exciting times ahead! @KateGoodlandx #bigsister #pregnant #family.’

Come on England! Katie took to Instagram to share a snap from the match’s build-up wishing the Three Lions luck as Kane shook hands with the referee

The couple first announced their engagement in July of last year, when Katie took to Instagram to share some snaps of Kane popping the question on a beach getaway. 

In January last year, Harry told Tottenham Hotspur.com about how much fatherhood had changed his life for the better.

He said: ‘The whole experience of being at the birth was quite surreal and one of the best feelings in the world, to become a dad. I wanted to be there for Kate and I’m so proud, especially proud of Kate, she was great, amazing. I don’t think you can really put it (the experience of being there at the birth) into words. 

‘It’s totally different from, say, scoring a goal and the adrenaline rush you get from that. It’s overwhelming really. It’s a miracle the way it all happens and to see a young human being coming into life was just incredible.

“It’s something that changes your life, and changes it for the better.’

So proud: Katie shared a snap of Harry from the moment he scored a goal, saying she was ‘gutted’ to not be watching it live with the other wives and girlfriends in Volgograd
