Brazil footballer Hulk announces second child with his ex-wife's niece

Brazil footballer Hulk announces second child with his ex-wife's niece

The football star began dating Camila five months after ending his marriage with her aunt

A Brazilian footballer has announced he’s having a second child with his ex-wife’s niece.

Hulk married Camila Angelo back in September 2020 and he also shares three kids with her aunt, Iran Angelo.

The current couple welcomed their first child in April 2022, daughter Zaya.

Reports that the former Porto player was dating Camila emerged at the end of 2019 - only five months after he split from Iran.

The pair were together for over 11 years.

A spokesman for the football star 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.”

The couple share a daughter together.

Hulk, whose real name is Givanildo Vieira de Sousa, confirmed on social media that the pair are expecting their second child.

He said: “Dropping by to thank you for the countless messages I have been receiving about my wife's pregnancy. Another son, another blessing that God gave me.”

Hulk also revealed why the pair have kept Camila’s pregnancy a secret until now.

“My children didn't know until now and I had agreed with my wife to tell them when I picked them up to spend the holidays with me, only on the 16th,” the 37-year-old said.

“I told them the news, they were very happy. I knew they would tell other people and those people would pass it on to someone. I knew it was going to leak.”

The Brazil player will now become a dad-of-five, alongside Alice, Ian, Tiago and Zaya.

They are now expecting a second child.

For the birth of his daughter last year, he missed his club Atlético Mineiro’s match as he flew from Brazil to Miami (where the couple share an apartment).

Announcing Zaya’s birth on Instagram with snaps of the new born, Hulk wrote: “Our little Zaya was born under the blessing of God Our Almighty Father.

“Zaya means enlightened, luck, flower that blossoms and she comes to bring light and illuminate our lives more. Come blossom our home my love. We’ve dreamed about your arrival for a long time.

“Happy to be able to experience the grace of the promises of God. Thank you, God, for my family that I will honour and love for ever.”

Hulk called his baby daughter an ‘answer to their prayers’ and a ‘blessing’.

It’s not yet known when Camila is due to give birth to their second child.
