Hulk Announces His 'Niece' Has Given Birth To His Fourth Child In Social Media Post

Brazilian footballer Hulk has confirmed the niece of his ex-wife has given birth to the couple's first child.


Hulk left his wife of 12 years, Iran Souza, back in July 2019 and entered a relationship with her niece, Camila Angelo, months later.

The pair announced they were expecting their first child together in September and Camila gave birth in Miami, Florida on Monday.


In an Instagram post, Hulk paid tribute to his newborn daughter and revealed her name to be Zaya.

It reads: "Our little Zaya was born under the blessing of God Our Almighty Father.

"Zaya means enlightened, luck, flower that blossoms and she comes to bring light and illuminate our lives more. Come blossom our home my love. We’ve dreamed about your arrival for a long time.


"Happy to be able to experience the grace of the promises of God.

"Thank you, God, for my family that I will honour and love forever.

"You are an answer to our prayers, daughter, you came to make our life even more beautiful. You are our blessing."

"Welcome my princess, I will love and protect you for ever. Hulk, your father."


The Brazil international has three children with his ex-wife and played in the Chinese Super League at the time.

He's since moved to Atletico Minero in his homeland and missed their 1-0 win over Club Athletico Paranaense on Sunday to be present at the birth.

Hulk has insisted he had no relationship with Camila prior to his marriage with Iran ending, accusing the latter of only being with him for his fame.


The 35-year-old said in an interview: "I never had a relationship with Camila when I was married. I am a man. I was not happy in my marriage.

"I had countless reasons. I spent my entire marriage betraying Iran. She lived a single life. She just wanted to have the status of wife of the Hulk.

"Camila came to China. I don’t think I’m an ugly person and I'm young. Camila is young and extremely beautiful.

"We ended up getting involved. We were single."
