Barcelona forward Antoine Griezmann took to social media to announce the arrival of his third child named Alba Griezmann.
The newborn came on Thursday, April 8 - the same day his wife Erika Choperena gave birth to their first two kids, Mia, and Amaro Griezmann.
His first daughter was born on April 8, 2016, while her younger brother, Amaro, arrived on the same day in 2019.
This is probably the reason the former Atletico Madrid forward missed Barca's training session earlier today as the Catalans prepare for their crucial Clasico against Real Madrid at the Alfredo Di Stefano Stadium this weekend.
Sources say that fans were already worried about the disappearance of the France international before they got to know he missed the training to welcome his third child.
The World Cup winner will be hoping to celebrate the arrival of his kid with goals against bitter rivals Real Madrid.
Griezmann has scored eight times in 27 Spanish League appearances so far this campaign and he will be dreaming to score and help his side triumph over Los Blancos.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that Lionel Messi's future at Barcelona remains one of the puzzles the board of Joan Laporta must solve before the end of the season.
The Argentine has been linked with a move to Paris Saint Germain and Manchester City this summer as the two clubs are hoping to sign him on a free transfer.
Messi has continued to give the Catalan club sleepless nights following his refusal to pen an extension with less than three months left on his current deal.
Although the new president is confident he can get the 33-year-old to extend his reign at Camp Nou, the decision solely lies with the player.
