Hulk has made 53 appearances for the Brazilian national side, scoring 12 goals. He has also played for Porto and Zenit Saint Petersburg in a 17-year professional career. Later he moved to China and pursued his football career there.
Brazilian football star Hulk has announced he is expecting a baby with partner Camila Angelo – the niece of his ex-wife. Hulk, 34, separated from wife Iran Angelo, 52, last year and started a relationship with Camila, 32. The pair are now expecting their first child together, and Hulk’s fourth overall.
“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,” Hulk wrote on Instagram on Saturday alongside photos of himself and Camila with ultrasound images.
“My heart overflows with so much happiness and I can only say thank you, GOD.
“We are already looking forward to receiving you, child, we love you unconditionally. Come full of health my baby.”
Hulk, who currently plays for Atlético Mineiro, recently celebrated a goal by putting the ball underneath his shirt like it was a pregnant belly.
The Brazilian footballer caused a major stir last year when it was confirmed he had left his wife of 12 years and started a relationship with her niece.
Iran previously opened up about the “great pain” she suffered as a result of the marriage breakdown, however, Hulk slammed claims of infidelity and said his former partner “treated me like a monster.”
