And the little one’s adorable name may well have been chosen based on Kane’s family history which some footballing heritage.
Kane’s mother’s father, Eric Edward Hogg, was quite the footballer, according to findmypast.
Hogg played at a semi-pro level for Blundell Rovers in the 1960s and later for Brentwood and Warley – now known as Brentwood Town F.C.
Meanwhile one of Eric’s brothers established a youth team in Islington during the Second World War with his name coincidentally being Harry.
If the tot’s name wasn’t already without family connections, Harry is often commonly used as a shorter version for Henry.
Kane’s maternal great grandmother’s husband was also named Henry according to the heritage site which may have contributed to the England skipper’s traditional choice of name.
Harry and Kate met while at school in Waltham Forest, East London and got engaged in July 2017, before tying the knot in 2019 in a lavish oceanside ceremony.
The couple are parents to three other children – daughters, Ivy, six, and Vivienne, five, and son Louis, two.
The transfer came with his wife Kate heavily pregnant with their fourth child.
Kate even scouted out hospitals in Munich during a trip to look at houses prior to the move.
However, a pair of clues in snaps shared by Kane have suggested his son Henry was born in England.
In the snaps, a UK plug socket can be seen, whilst the labels on the bed are also written in English.
The former Tottenham star could have had a hat-trick with Bremen goalkeeper Jiri Pavlenka pulling off several saves before Kane found the net.
Kane’s debut ended prematurely as he pulled up with cramp, but he left the pitch to a standing ovation from the travelling Bayern support.
He said they will speak “when things have calmed down”.
