Legendary Brazil and Real Madrid left-back, Roberto Carlos, has become a father for the ninth time after his wife, Mariana Lucón, gave birth to a baby girl this weekend.
Carlos announced the news on Saturday, in an Instagram post in which the couple’s first daughter, Manuela, can be seen rocking new arrival, Marina.
He also posted a photo of himself and Mariana, introducing Marina to the world outside Madrid’s Hospital Ruber Internacional.
Carlos, who now works as a pundit for Real’s in-house TV channel alongside roles as a club ambassador and youth coach, wrote beneath the image: “I’d like to express my gratitude to Doctor Vidal and all his assistants […] for all the care and attention shown to my family, many thanks from the bottom of my heart.”
The 44-year-old already has three children from his first marriage and four sons from later relationships.
