    No caption was added to the post but Futballnews understands it’s about the birth of his second child.

    The sweet reveal footage is coming two days after he shared in the heartbreak of Portugal’s Euro 2024 quarter-final loss to France on penalties. Reacting to the loss, Cancelo, who was crucial to the team’s run-in to the last 8 of the competition, took to his social media to hail the team for the courageous sail in the tournament while affirming his unshakable faith in his country.

    His reaction was no different to how footballers respond to significant setbacks in tournaments and matches. He is expected to get back in gear for the upcoming campaign. And of course, the birth of his second child is likely to force him out of his shelves.

    Joao Cancelo family

    Away from the field, Cancelo is a father and lovely partner with a blossoming family. Before the reveal footage of his second child, the footballer has been seen sharing quality family moments with his lover, Machado, and first child, Alicia, 5.

    On March 31, 2024, he posted awesome footage of the family having a nice time together. Previously a family of three, they are now a family of four with the arrival of the newborn.

    Who is Joao Cancelo partner Daniela Machado?

    Daniela Machado is the lover of Portuguese footballer Joao Cancelo. She is Portuguese as her footballer husband. Like most wags, Machado is into modeling and boasts a great number of followers on Instagram numbering up to 121k as of the time of filing this report. She is a life-loving type and has been spotted on various luxury trips and vacations with Cancelo. Cancelo reportedly met her back in 2011. They are engaged but have yet to tie the knot.

    Machado zoomed more into the spotlight when she aimed an infamous swipe at Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola for dropping her footballer lover, Cancelo, as City’s first-choice left-back.

    When Cancelo left Manchester City on loan to Bayern Munich due to his dwindling fortunes at the Etihad, Machado aimed a subtle dig at the Spanish coach. She wrote on Instagram, ”You were the best full-back in Spain, Italy and England. You are the best in the world. You don’t have to prove anything to anybody anymore.”
