Arsenal’s winger, Nicolas Pepe, and his wife, Fanny B are expecting a second child more than a year after welcoming their first child.
Fanny B gave birth to Pepe’s first son in July 2020 and to date, Pepe and Fanny have decided not to make the name of the boy public.
Ahead of the October FIFA international break, Nicolas Pepe traveled with his family to Paris, where the love affairs between him and Fanny started.
Fanny B, as she likes to be called turned 26-year-old on October 4, 2021. Hence, her husband decided to celebrate the day in a ground style.
Based on a video Pepe shared via his Instagram page, the birthday party was very colorful and filled with a couple of family members and friends.
In the video, Fanny B could be seen cutting a gigantic birthday cake that came with her name and her new age.
The two lovers used the ceremony to announce that their second child is on the way. To drive home the message, Pepe was made to kick a ball into the net and then they released a colored smoke bomb.
Based on the color of the smoke bomb which is blue, it seems Nicolas Pepe and Fanny are expecting another baby boy.
However, Pepe seems not to be too sure about the gender in the womb of his wife. Hence, he captioned the Instagram post with “Team boy or girl?”
Some critics of the Ivory Coast international believed that Pepe missed the CAF World Cup qualification match between his country and Malawi on October 8, 2021, because of his wife’s birthday party or the gender-revealing ceremony.
However, it was being speculated that Pepe could not travel with Ivory Coast to Malawi for the World Cup qualification match due to coronavirus restriction.
Nicolas Pepe however made up for not being available for the away game against Malawi on October 8 which ended 0-3 in favor of his country.
He played in the returned leg on October 11. The Arsenal star scored the first goal of the match in the 2nd minute after kick-off. The match ended 2-1 in favor of Pepe’s team.
Based on the 2-1 victory, Ivory Coast are topping the World Cup qualification Group D table with 10 points in 4 games, a point above second-placed Cameroon.
Pepe is expected to be in action for his country against Mozambique on November 11, and against Cameroon on November 14.
