Brazilian striker Givanildo Vieira de Sousa, better known as Hulk is expecting his fourth child with the niece of his ex-wife.
The Atletico Mineiro striker made the announcement on Instagram, sharing photos of him and his ex-wife’s niece, Camila Sousa kissing and holding up ultrasound photos.
Hulk and his ex-wife, Iran Angelo split in July 2019 after 12 years of marriage. Hulk was an uncle to Camila throughout her marriage with Iran.
In December of that year, there were rumours of him being in a relationship with Iran’s 32-year-old niece, Camila.
They eventually got married in September 2020 while the 35-year-old footballer was still playing for Chinese side Shangai SIPG following his split from the mother of his two sons and daughter.
Announcing that he and and Camila are expecting his fourth child, Hulk wrote;
“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.”
Hulk made his debut for Brazil in November 2009 in a friendly against England and was recalled to the national side for the 2022 World Cup qualifiers after a five-year absence.
He signed for Atletico Mineiro on a two-year contract in January 2021 after scoring 77 goals in 145 appearances for Shangai SIPG. He acquired his nickname due to his likeness to actor Lou Ferrigno, who played the Incredible Hulk on the eponymous 1970s television show.
It is not yet known whether he and Camila are expecting a boy or a girl.
