Bruno Fernandes has become a father for the second time after he welcomed a bouncing baby boy with his spouse Ana Pinho.
Fernandes broke the exciting news to his followers on Saturday night, September 5, just moments after he inspired Portugal to a 4-1 win over Croatia during the Nations League tournament.
The Man United star was impressive during the match played in Porto, providing an assist to help his side to victory.
In an announcement to his fans on the birth of his son, Bruno cheekily joked he had actually scored on a night many thought he was not on the score-sheet.
"September 6, 2020, when many thought that at the end of the national team’s game that Bruno Fernandes had not scored a goal they were wrong," he joked.

"Today, 38 weeks and 6 days ago, I scored one of the most important goals of my life and had to wait a distance of almost 9 months, anxious to see the ball hit the back of the net," he continued.
It is understood Bruno and Ana named the baby boy, Goncalo.
The couple already have another child together named Matilde who celebrated her third birthday at Old Trafford back in January when her dad completed a sensational transfer move to United.
Bruno enjoyed a bright start to life after the transfer, establishing himself as an integral squad member for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
