And after a few drinks, dad Jack Dewick named her Wembley Lester in honour of his team’s big game at the North West London stadium.

The Foxes went on to lose 3-1 but Wembley hopes her name brings City luck in next Saturday’s final against Chelsea.

The mum of two said: “I’m very proud of my name. It’s definitely an ice breaker when we meet people for the first time.

“I get some odd looks sometimes but mostly it’s positive.”

Gardener Wembley, from Humberstone, Leics, said she is a lifelong Leicester City fan.

She said: “I have lived in three houses literally all a stone’s throw away from each other in Leicester.

“My family are all mad Foxes fans and we used to all live close to each other and talk about nothing else.

“I’ve seen them play loads of times and have even been to the old Filbert Street back in the day.”

But there is one place she said she has not been.


She said: “It might sound daft considering I’m named after it but I have never been to Wembley.

“But I’ll be watching and cheering them on at home.

“Hopefully they can bring the trophy home.”
