Shanghai SIPG star Hulk has married his ex wife's niece in a 'sudden marriage,' just months after his former relationship came to an end.
The Brazilian striker divorced 33-year-old Iran Angelo in July after a 12 year relationship and in December rumours of a relationship with Angelo's niece, Camila Angelo, who is 31, began to surface, with the pair reportedly an item since October.
Argentine newspaper 'Infobae' reported that the pair got married last week and claimed that his new wife needed to get hitched in such 'sudden' fashion because she needed a visa to stay in China.
A post on Hulk's Instagram appeared to confirm that the pair are married with a ring in the caption and both seem to be wearing rings and the 33-year-old also added a wedding ring emoji to his bio too.
Hulk, and his new wife's auntie, have three children together, aged 10, eight and six, and the player broke the news of his new relationship to his family, including his three kids, in December.
The pair have been living in China together since with the former Porto striker having played for Shanghai since moving back to the far East, after a previous stint in Japan, in 2016.
On talk of the relationship back in December a press secretary for the player said, "Hulk called the parents and the brother of Camilla and told them the truth.
"It was Hulk himself who made the information public because he had nothing to hide. His position is transparency and he wants to avoid lies and malicious comments."
By the looks of things Hulk has deleted all traces of his ex wife from his Instagram, probably a good call in case there's any pictures of the extended family.
The Brazilian played for Zenit St Petersburg for four years before moving to the Chinese Super League for £45 million, becoming one of the first high profile signings for the league.
He has scored 45 times in 84 league appearances since moving and won the league in 2018, followed by the Chinese FA Super Cup in 2019.
The league is currently on hiatus due to the Covid-19 outbreak but clearly the striker has found something else to fill his time.
