On August 24, 2011, Neymar’s ex-girlfriend, Carolina Nogueira Dantas, gave birth to their son Davi Lucca da Silva Santos in Sao Paulo.

The PSG star took to his Instagram to celebrate his son with a photo that was captioned “Parabéns meu amor…9 aninhos! EU TE AMO DEMAIS❤❤” which translates to ” Congratulations my love … 9 years old! I LOVE YOU SO MUCH❤❤”
Who is Carolina Dantas?
Carolina Dantas (born October 21, 1993) is a Brazilian social media sensation and sportsperson former partner from Santos, São Paulo. She first garnered limelight after coming out as a lover of Neymar. She graduated from Colegio Adventista de Santos in 2011. She met Neymar when he was 18 and she was 16 but didn’t inform her family about their relationship because of the fear they would not approve of it.

The birth of Neymar’s son
He was born to his parents on the 24th of August 2011. During an interview, the player told his fans that he cried when his girlfriend became pregnant with his baby initially. But later Neymar started to feel happy after becoming the father of Davi. Davi Lucca weighed 2.8 kilograms at the time of his birth.
Dr Herbert Kramer, who was in charge of the delivery sued Neymar as he claimed that he was not paid for prenatal and birthing services rendered to the mother of Neymar’s son. The court ruled in favour of the doctor but could not determine the exact amount he should receive.
Davi Lucca’s custody
After divorce, the couple agreed to split custody of their son Although, due to Neymar’s busy schedule as a footballer whether training or match proper, Carolina spends more time with Davi but Neymar too gets his fair share of time with him. On several occasions, Davi has slept over at his father’s place.
