Manchester United striker Edinson Cavani has taken to social media to announce the birth of his fourth child.
The 34-year-old dedicated his Instagram post to his partner Jocelyn Burgardt as he shared a snap of their baby boy Silvestre.
Captioning the photo, he said: “Today is one of those special days that God gives us, happy with the arrival of our little “Silvestre”.
“I congratulate you @eternalprimavera21 for that courage of Leona. I love you.”
The name the couple have opted for is the Spanish equivalent of Sylvester and means ‘Coming from a wild place’.
The footballer and Jocelyn also have a daughter called India who turned two last month.
Jocelyn’s pregnancy was cited as one of the reasons the striker was planning to return to South America earlier this year when he was being linked to a move to Argentine giants Boca Juniors before he agreed to stay on at United.
Argentine media outlet Infobae reported at the time: “His partner Jocelyn Burgardt is close to giving birth and the family’s idea is to return to Uruguay in June to welcome the new heir.
“After having been away from each other for so long, the Cavani family will be united once again or just a few hundred miles apart if Edinson ends up forming part of Argentinian football.”
Jocelyn was last pictured in a touching family video the United frontman posted in January on his social media, showing him painting his daughter’s hands before placing her right palm on his left cheek.
