A Harry Kane ‘lookalike’ filmed himself singing ‘It’s Coming Home’ while rushing his fiancée in labour to hospital – as she shouted at him through contractions in her passenger seat.
Simmie Sweeney had been preparing for the birth of his third child with Amy Watts, 27, all week – joking the baby girl may arrive just in time for England’s 2-1 victory against Denmark.
The 26-year-old woke up yesterday morning to find key worker Amy had gone into labour and as he rushed her to hospital, he decided to burst out into song, singing the 1996 Three Lion’s hit while Amy squirmed in pain next to him.
Simmie’s video has now been viewed more than 400,000 times and received more than 8,100 likes, while he jokingly asked ‘reckon I’ll be out in time for tonight?’.
Simmie, from Birmingham, West Midlands, said: “I thought there’s no better time to let people know it’s coming home than during child labour.
“We’re both football fans. Amy isn’t as much of a fan as me, but she’s got involved with the Euros.
“I’ve had it before where people have said I look like Harry Kane.
“We’re having a little girl so if Harry Kane scores a winner, I can’t call a girl Harry, but maybe Harriet?
“It’s a conversation to be had.
“I’ll be watching the clock tonight before kick off. I’ve brought the iPad so I’ll have to multi-task if the baby isn’t born by then.
“This is our third child. I think she’ll be more relaxed if I stick football on in the background – or I’ll be shouted at. One or the other.”
The couple had joked that Amy would go into labour on ones of the biggest day in the football calendar and prankster Simmie admits it could turn into a ‘very special day’.
Simmie, dad-of-three, said: “I’m off work for the build up of today and Amy’s already overdue.
“All week, we’ve said it’ll land on this day if England gets to the semi-finals.
“Low and behold yesterday morning she started getting contractions.
“Amy doesn’t know she’s gone viral on Twitter yet.
“I’ve had to put my phone on ‘do not disturb’ because of the reaction on Twitter. My phone battery went from 80 percent to 6 percent.”
On social media, Simmie’s video attracted more than 22,000 views, with some eagle-eyed viewers seeing a striking similarity between Simmie and England captain Kane.
Tom Leech said: “Absolute legend.”
Lucas Utd shared an image of Harry Kane to show Simmie’s similarity and said: “Supposed to be starting tonight aren’t you fella?”
Joe Diego said: “You look like Harry Kane’s brother.”
