Manchester United striker, Edison Cavani has welcomed his third child who is suspected to be a boy. The 34-year-old Uruguayan striker took to various social media platforms to flaunt the birth of the child on Thursday, June 4, 2021.
In a picture he shared on Instagram to announce the birth of the child, Edison Cavani could be seen posing alongside his girlfriend, Jocelyn Burgardt, and the newborn baby in a maternity room.
In the caption, Edison Cavani described the arrival of the child as the arrival of the “little Silvestre” of his and that of his lover Burgardt, the mother of the child. The Manchester United striker also used the Instagram post to congratulate his lover for her courage to deliver the baby.
“Today is one of those special days that God gives us, happy with the arrival of our little “Silvestre” … I congratulate you @eternalprimavera21 for that courage of Leona. I love you; Heart Suit”, he wrote.
Just like how Edison Cavani is not new in the business of scoring great goals, from his days at Monaco to his days at Paris Saint Germain, and now at Manchester United, the Uruguayan striker is not new to having children.
Before the arrival of the latest baby, Cavani has two children from his previous relationship. The 34-year-old striker was married to Maria Soledad Cabris Yarrús and they had two sons together before the marriage collapsed.
The two products of the broken marriage are Bautista who was born on March 22, 2011, and Lucas who was born on March 8, 2013.
Edison Cavani didn’t stay single for too long after his marriage to Maria Soledad ended. He picked up his love life back early in 2015 when he met with a Samba dancer who is also from Uruguay, Burgardt.
According to reports, Edison Cavani first spotted Jocelyn Burgardt at a Bella Union Carnival in 2015. Despite other beautiful ladies at the carnival, the footballer could not but settle for the dancer.
They both fell in love and spent most of the time together when Cavani was playing for Paris Saint Germain, in Paris, France. She moved with him to England when the footballer joined Manchester United on October 5, 2020.
Since then, the relationship between Cavani and Burgardt has been kept private until the birth of their first child in June 2021. The child was born a day after one of the goals Cavani scored in May won Manchester United’s goal of the month.
