Gareth Bale is celebrating off the pitch this morning after announcing the arrival of his newborn son.
The Welsh winger and fiancee Emma Rhys-Jones have two daughters together Alba Violet, 5, and Nava Valentina, 2.
He took to Twitter to reveal the exciting news along with a picture of Axel Charles Bale.
Bale wrote: “We are delighted to welcome a baby boy into our family this morning. Axel Charles Bale 08.05.18”
The 28-year-old is set to marry his childhood sweetheart in a haunted Italian castle later this year.
It is the same destination where Theo Walcott – Bale’s former Southampton team-mate- tied the knot four years ago.
The loved-up pair have been together for almost 10 years after meeting while attending Whitchurch High School.
