Brazil footballer Hulk confirms he is expecting child with his pregnant niece
Brazilian striker Hulk has announced his niece is pregnant with his fourth child.
The soccer star confirmed Camila Sousa was expecting in an Instagram post which included footage of them kissing each other and photos of them holding up ultrasound scan photos of the unborn baby.
Atletico Mineiro forward Hulk, real name Givanildo Vieira de Sousa, announced he was dating his younger relative after ending his 12-year relationship with ex-wife Iran Angelo in July 2019.
Reports of his relationship with pretty blonde Camilo, 32, surfaced in December that year.
The loved-up pair married in September 2020 while the 35-year-old footballer was still playing for the Chinese side Shangai SIPG following his split from the mother of his two sons and daughter.
It is not yet known if the child Camila is expecting will be a boy or girl.
Hulk wrote alongside an emotional Instagram post showing him lifting his partner off the ground and holding the couple’s ultrasound photos of their unborn baby: “Today with a heart full of gratitude to God, I come to share with you that for the fourth time I am being blessed with another child.
“My heart overflows with so much happiness and I can only say thank you God.
“We are already looking forward to receiving you child, and we love you unconditionally.
“Come full of health my baby.”
He also posted a home-made video of him dancing with his wife as he lifted her in his arms and kissed her while she held the hospital snaps.
The footballer, famed for his body strength, reportedly broke the news of his relationship with Camila to his family including his three school-age children with Iran Angelo, Ian, Thiago, and Alice, in December 2019.
A spokesman for the striker said in a statement at the time: “Hulk called the parents and the brother of Camila and told them the truth.
“It was Hulk himself who made the information public because he had nothing to hide. His position is transparency and he wants to avoid lies and malicious comments.”
