The goalkeeper of Liverpool football club Alisson Becker took to his Instagram account to share pictures of himself and his first son, Matteo, to mark the boy’s first birthday on earth. Matteo was born on 14 June 2019, hence, on Sunday was his big day and his father didn’t fail to remind the world of that.
In one of the series of pictures the Liverpool shots stopper shared to mark his son’s special day, the Brazilian goalkeeper could be seen wearing surgical scrubs and a cap, while carrying the child close enough to feel his smell. The picture was taken on the day the baby was given birth to.
In other pictures, Alisson could be seen in a variety of posses with the boy and in different backgrounds. The boy could also be seen giving the camera good reasons to keep taking the shots.
Alisson‘s first child Helena was not missing in the series of pictures the Liverpool goalie shared to celebrate Matteo. But his wife and mother of his children, Natalia Loewe, was not featured in the series of pictures.
In the caption of the series of pictures, the reigning The Best FIFA goalkeeper wrote in Portuguese that: “Today our prince completed his first birthday!! A year of one of the happiest days of my life! You came to cheer our lives even more!!! I love you, my son, may God bless you and light your way!!”

The family of the Liverpool goalie which officially started in 2015 when he married Natalia is growing. They are now four in number – himself, his wife who is a practising medical doctor, his daughter, Helena, born in April 2017, and of course, the celebrant Matteo.
The year 2019 is a year the Liverpool star will never forget in a hurry. Besides having a son for the first time, the 27-year-old led Liverpool and his country to win laurels most goalkeepers of his generation will only dream of. He also won the highest personal honour for a goalkeeper.
For instance, in May 2019, Alisson was included by manager Tite in Brazil’s 23-man squad for the 2019 Copa América on home soil. Throughout the tournament, he only conceded one goal in six matches, as Brazil went on to win the title.
On 1 June 2019, he kept a clean sheet for Liverpool on the final of the UEFA Champions League as they defeated Tottenham Hotspur 2–0, making eight saves in the process, to win his first trophy with the club. He also helped the club to win the FIFA Club World Cup.
At the end of that season, he won the English Premier League Golden Glove award as he kept a total of 21 clean sheets in the League, one of the few goalkeepers in Europe to ever achieve such a feat. He also went on to win The Best FIFA Goalkeeper of the year and was also the recipient of the inaugural Yashin Trophy.
