Isla’s booby prize

Former Home & Away' actress Isla Fisher has received an unusual Valentine's gift from her fiancé Sacha Baron Cohen. The Borat’ star presented her with a blue-footed booby, a type of bird from the Galapagos Islands with bright blue feet. An insider says, “Sacha has, of course, got a wacky sense of humour and he wanted to get Isla something a little different. He spoke to the World Wildlife Fund and asked what animals he could adopt on her behalf. Although she doesn’t strictly own the bird, Isla is now deemed a ‘proud parent’ and Sacha will pay a monthly fee to pay for the booby’s upkeep in the wild. She’ll even get a certificate in the post.” [7 February 2007]
