Raul Jimenez and Daniela Basso took to Instagram to share a photograph of themselves and the newborn baby to announce to their combined 2.3 million Instagram followers that they are now parents. The Mexican celebrities shared the same post on other social media platforms including Twitter.
In the caption of the post, the lovers wrote: “We introduce you to the love of our life 😍 Welcome beautiful princess Arya 07/21/2020 👨👩👧 The best and most incredible adventure begins, WE LOVE YOU”.
Wolves did not miss out on the celebration. They retweeted Jimenez’s tweet via the club’s official Twitter handle and wrote: “Congratulations to Raul Jimenez and Daniela Basso. Welcome to the pack, Arya”.
Days later, a foundation of Wolverhampton Wanderers, known as Young Wolves, presented baby gifts to Raul Jimenez’s daughter which included customised toys and baby kits. Jimenez took to Twitter and shared a photo showing the baby being laid in the midst of the gifts. In the caption, the Mexican football star wrote: “Thanks @Young_Wolves for all the gifts you send to Arya, she really loved them.”
Raul Jimenez and Daniela Basso announced in February 2020 that they were expecting their first baby. They did a gender reveal and suspected that Daniela was carrying a baby boy.
They were so sure of the result that the footballer was seen striking a ball into balloons which sparked blue smoke into the air. It eventually turned out that it was actually a baby girl that Jimenez’s girlfriend was carrying.
Prior to the announcement of the birth of the baby girl, the fans of Wolves thought they might be so unfortunate that the child would be born around July 26, a day Wolves will play their last game of the season against Chelsea. The match is so important that they would not want to play it without a striker who has scored 26 goals and made 10 assists in 52 appearances for the club this season.
Luckily for Wolves‘ fans, they will have Jimenez available for Chelsea‘s game as the baby girl arrived less than a week before the match which is so important that if they fail to win it, they might miss the opportunity of playing in Europe next season.
