PABLO Counago celebrated the news that he is to become a dad by banging in two goals in a sparkling Ipswich Town performance.
Pablo's brace helped see off the Coventry challenge as Ipswich notched their seventh successive home win and each goal was marked with a rocking the baby gesture.
Counago said the goal celebration was to mark the news that he and Spanish girlfriend Lara are going to be parents for the first time next year. He said: “I'm going to be a father in March and I couldn't have been happier.

Jason De Vos opened the scoring while Jon Walters also found the net as Ipswich leaped up to 10th place in the Championship.
While the Spaniard accepts Town need to pick up more points on the road he has warned they should not allow it to become a problem.
He said: “It should not become an obsession. We don't need to panic because otherwise it becomes a pressure and we don't need that.
“The wins away will come and then it will all be forgotten.
“At home we have a lot more ball and more chances - now we need to do that away. We do need to win away but for me it is important to be strong at home.
“Now we are strong at home we should look to win away. The last two games were against two of the strongest teams.
“You just have to forget about being at home or away and just play the same way.”
