Manchester United star midfielder Bruno Fernandes and his lovely wife, Ana, have welcomed their second child after Ana put to bed on Sunday morning.
Bruno Fernandes was in action for Portugal as he played all 90 minutes in Portugal’s 4-1 victory over Croatia 4-1, before rushing to the hospital to be at his wife’s side as she put to bed.
Ana reportedly delivered their second child — a baby boy — at around 12:30 am on Sunday morning, barely four hours after Portugal’s win at the Estadio do Dragao.
Fernandes revealed that prior to getting to the hospital, he was delayed at the stadium for an anti-doping test after the match.
The midfielder had an evening to remember as he revealed that he just scored one of the most important goals of his career with the baby.
In an Instagram post, Fernandes shared lovely pictures of himself and Ana and the baby boy, as he wrote: “September 6, 2020, when many thought that at the end of the national team’s game that Bruno Fernandes had not scored a goal they were wrong!
“Today, 38 weeks and 6 days ago, I scored one of the most important goals of my life and had to wait a distance of almost 9 months, anxious to see the ball hit the back of the net.
“When the game was over many of you said “you didn’t score a goal”, but you were wrong because despite the final whistle, one of the two best shots I ever took in my career was about to go in, but not without the delegate calling me for anti-doping right after the game.
“After those moments plus a few hours, behold! the ball went in – or in this specific case Gonçalo de Pinho Fernandes decided it was time for his father to score the second important goal in his life!
“And so at 00:39 on the 6th of September my wife @anaapinho_ once again made our life gain even more life.”
Fernandes got married to his high school sweetheart, Ana Pinho, in December 2015,and in 2017, Ana gave birth to the couple’s first child, a daughter called Matilde.
