Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone welcomed yet another member to his family after his girlfriend Carla Pereyra delivered a baby girl. This is Simeone’s fifth child and a second one from his current girlfriend. The couple named the newborn baby Valentina.
Simeone shared the snaps of the newborn on his Instagram account. He can be seen wearing a hospital gown, face mask and cap as he posed for a photograph with his newest addition which he captioned “Welcome Valentina.”
The 48-year-old arrived at the hospital after his side’s 1-3 defeat to bitter Real Madrid on Saturday. Carla who had left Argentina at the age of 17 years to pursue her modelling career in Milan has been seeing the former Argentina midfielder since 2014. The couple already has a two-year-old daughter called Francesca.
Simeone who was earlier married to Caroline Baldini, whom he divorced in 2008 has three sons from his ex-wife. Giovanni, (23 year) plays as a striker for Italian club Fiorentina, while Gianluca (22 years) plays for Argentina club Gimnasia Esgrima.
Guiliano the youngest among the three brothers (16 years) plays for River Plate’s youth team and is seen as a bright prospect with a chance to break into the first-team in the next couple of years.
Simeone is expected to return to his managerial duties when Atletico Madrid take on Rayo Vallecano in their next league fixture scheduled for Saturday, February 16.
