Recently, Manchester City forward, Gabriel Jesus took to his Instagram story to post a picture of himself and his little niece chilling at a dinner table.
The little girl whose name was not revealed made a funny face while she posed with the Brazilian footballer whose future at City is no longer guaranteed.
Gabriel Jesus simply tagged the picture with “baby” in Portuguese and added the hashtag “niece” to ensure that his followers do not mistake her for his daughter.
The 24-year-old Brazilian striker posted the picture less than a month after he took to Instagram to announce that he and his girlfriend, Raiane Lima are expecting a baby girl.
Gabriel made the announcement not to only announce that his daughter will soon arrive but to also wish his girlfriend a happy 21st birthday.
In the picture the Brazilian footballer posted on February 8, 2022, Gabriel Jesus could be seen on his knees while kissing the forehead of Raiane Lima.
In the caption, Gabriel wrote in Portuguese: “Happy birthday my love.❤️🙏🏽🙌🏽 May God bless and protect you and our baby GIRL (yes, it’s a girl 👧🏻❤️😍)”.
Also, Raiane Lima took to his Instagram page to share a picture showing herself kneeling on a bed. The background of the picture was decorated with pink balloons and her new age (21).
Who is the girlfriend of Gabriel Jesus?
Gabriel Jesus is dating Raiane Lima, a fellow Brazilian damsel who is known as a digital influencer.
Before it became public that the Manchester City striker was dating Raiane, there was speculation that the damsel was dating a local politician in Brazil.
She had to take to social media in early 2021 to stress that she was not dating a politician in Brazil. She also used the opportunity to confirm her relationship with Gabriel.
Raiane Lima wrote: “I just want to clear up a few things that gossip sites have been saying. First of all, I’m 20 and have been over-age for some time now.
“Second I was not dating anyone when I got to know Gabriel. Today we are in a relationship, yes, but that’s something that only concerns us.
“We are single, free and anything else said other than that is gossip and cruelty.”
