FATHER-SON THING: Footballers are much more than just players, and there is much more to them than just goals and passes. Many of them are fathers, and they can’t stop showing love for their young-lings on social media. These FIVE footballers, however, go extra mile, that you may think they Have A Crush On Their Kids.
5. Neymar Jr.
Outside the pitch, the Brazil’s darling has tried his hand at a few things like music, acting, and business. However, the one thing that he excels in off the pitch is fatherhood.
David Lucca, who was born in 2011. At the birth of his son, Neymar said, “I cried when I learned that I would be his father. At first, I felt fear. Then joy. It is a new responsibility and I am now enjoying it.”
4. Lionel Messi
Arguably, one of the best footballers in the world, Messi is also a loving family man. His partner, Antonella Roccuzzo gave birth to the first couple’s son, Thiago on 2 November 2012. Messi’s second son, Mateo, was born on 11 September 2015.
The diminutive Argentine got Thiago’s name and hand-prints imprinted on his left calf.The father-son duo was also part of a publicity campaign for UNICEF back in June, 2014 to celebrate Thiago’s birthday.
3. Cristiano Ronaldo
Almost every other post on Instagram by Ronaldo is of his son Cristiano Jr. Cristiano Jr. was born on 17 June 2010 in the United States and while the mother’s name was never revealed Ronaldo assumed full custody of the child.
Despite not having a mother by his side, Ronaldo’s girlfriend Georgina Rodríguez and his mother, Dolores Aveiro are always seen to be around him, thus filling the void for young Cristiano Jr.
