Victor Osimhen steps out with Daughter Hailey After Sampdoria win
After the victory over Sampdoria, Victor Osimhen nudged his privacy protocols to step out with his beautiful daughter Hailey.
Cradling Hailey in his arms, the Nigerian striker took a walk in the field with the one-year-old.
Hailey was clad with a customized face mask as his Dad. Hailey’s face mask bore her Dad’s shirt number with the name ‘Osimhen’ boldly scripted on it.
Hailey is Victor Osimhen’s first and only child. Her mother is a Cameroonian-German and Osimhen’s girlfriend, Stephanie Kim Ladewig.
Victor Osimhen met and started dating Ladewig when he was playing for Wolfsburg in Germany.
Stephanie Ladewig was reportedly a cheerleader at Wolfsburg when she met Victor Osimhen. The exact date the duo started their love journey is unknown but they have grown together since the relationship began. In 2022, Stephanie Kim Ladewig gave birth to Hailey, Victor Osimhen’s first child.
The family were recently spotted in Berlin Germany amid reports Stephanie Ladewig wants her lover to push through a summer move to Germany amidst interest by other clubs.
Stephanie wants Hailey to be raised in Germany, close to her maternal family and is hoping Victor Osimhen seals a deal with a German club to make her wish possible.
In an exclusive interview with II Martino in 2022, Victor Osimhen revealed after the birth of Hailey more details about his decisions over his private life and the joy of having Hailey as his daughter.
According to him, Hailey’s birth is the most important thing that happened to him and he celebrates her with every goal he scored.
“It is the most fantastic thing that could have happened to me,” Osimhen said of the birth of his baby girl.
“I celebrate her after each goal, making the gesture of the initial of her name, H. Her name is Hailey.”
Osimhen also revealed why he always wants Hailey close to him, linking his experience to that of his late father.
“I always want her close to me, because this is the memory I too always have of my father: him by my side. All the time.”
Hailey was born in Italy in 2022 and is automatically an Italian Citizen. Osimhen added one day she will take Hailey to Nigeria for her to have a feel of his roots and story of his rise from the streets of Lagos in Nigeria to the world stage.
In addition to winning the 2022/23 Serie A trophy with Napoli, Osimhen also became the first African to be crowned Serie A top scorer after his 26-goal haul for Napoli in Serie A this season.
