- John Obi Mikel seemingly made his twin daughters pray over chocolates he got for them
- The 33-year-old midfielder has always shared adorable moments with his daughters on social media

- The Potters are now in eighth position on the Championship table and are on course to earn a playoff spot
John Obi Mikel has never for once hidden his love for his twin daughters, Ava and Mia, as the former Nigerian star posted a photo of them on his social media handle.
In the Instagram photo, the five-year-old girls seem to be praying and meditating for hot chocolates provided by their parents.
The Stoke City captioned the photo:
"Praying and excited about the hot chocolate."
Mikel has been involved in Michael O'Neil's quest to return Stoke back into the Premier league as they are currently placed eighth on the Championship table.
The 33-year-old has played 14 out of 19 matches for the Potters this season, recording eight wins, six draws as well as five losses.
Stoke will be at home to Blackburn Rovers this weekend in a bid to leapfrog into the playoffs spot on the league standings.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that John Obi Mikel had another cause to celebrate with his family as his twin daughters, Ava and Mia clocked 5.
The Stoke City midfielder along with his wife Olga Diyachenko celebrated their children in what looked to be their home at their base in England.
Each of the parents held Ava and Mia and posed for a photo which had cakes of cartoon characters designed on it.
Legit.ng had also reported that Nigerian star John Obi Mikel appears to have sealed his place in the Stoke City team a few months after joining them.
Despite creating just one assist in 11 appearances for The Potters since he joined them in the summer, Michael O'Neill believes his presence in the team has made them stronger.
So far, the club has kept five clean sheets that the 33-year-old featured in and that has been attributed to the inclusion of the former Super Eagles captain in the team.
