The goalkeeper’s wife posted a picture on Instagram showing that Martinez’s family has one new addition.
Before then, Mandinha shared pictures of a newborn baby on her Instagram story. In one of the pictures she shared on Tuesday, July 13, Emiliano Martinez could be seen kissing the forehead of the baby.
In another picture, a card could be seen in which the name of the baby, Ava, was written on it. The content on the card read: “Welcome to the world, baby Ava! We Can’t wait to meet you in person. Lots of love, Ruta, Oliver – Henry xxx.”
“Cutest Gift. Thank you Ruta, Oliver & Henry”, Mandinha wrote to appreciate the gift.
However, an earlier check on the Instagram pages of Emiliano Martinez and Mandinha showed that the lovers did not make an Instagram post to announce the birth of the child.
A critical review of Mandinha’s Instagram posts showed that she had shared posts showing her baby bump on several occasions this year. The latest of such a picture surfaced on April 17, 2021.
Hence, Emiliano Martinez is now a father of two children. He and Mandinha welcomed their first child in 2018. The boy is named Santi Emiliano.
In October 2020, Mandinha took to Instagram to post images that suggested that Santi Emiliano has joined Aston Villa football academy. In the images, the youngster could be seen in a training complex well-kitted in Aston Villa jersey.
The relationship between Emiliano Martinez and Mandinha
Emiliano Martinez and Mandinha have been married since May 22, 2017. Their love story started when they were in high school and seems to be going stronger by the day.
Before Martinez left Argentina to join Arsenal in 2010, Mandinha has been in the life of the 28-year-old goalkeeper. Through his time with the Arsenal senior team, the Argentine damsel stood by the goalkeeper.
When the Argentine goalkeeper left Arsenal for Aston Villa, Mandinha continued to stand by her superstar husband. Though she runs her own kids store in London, she always creates time to celebrate her family on Instagram.
She did not also fail to celebrate Martinez during and after he helped Argentina to win Copa America earlier in July. Recall that the Aston Villa goalkeeper performed so well in the tournament that he emerged as the goalkeeper of the tournament.
His performance in the tournament forced Arsenal’s fans to criticize the current coach of the club, Mikel Arteta for frustrating him out of the club. Recall that the 28-year-old goalkeeper could not have a regular playing time at Arsenal but when he joined Aston Villa in 2020, he became one of the best goalkeepers in the Premier League.
In the just concluded Copa America, Emiliano Martinez recorded four clean sheets and conceded only two goals throughout the tournament.
