Givanildo Vieira de Sousa, 37, is better known as ‘Hulk’.

He’s a Brazilian centre-forward who currently plays for Atlético Mineiro. Hulk also used to play for Porto, Portugal, and represented Brazil in the 2012 Summer Olympics.

But aside from his rather high-profile career, it’s Hulk’s personal life that seems to attract even more headlines.

And some recent news he’s announced to the public has truly divided opinion on social media.

“The song, ‘I’m My Own Grandpa’ springs to mind when I read stories like these,” one fan joked.

Another added: “Some might say INCREDIBLE!! Hulk.”

While a third simply opined: “This world is effed up.”

Hulk was previously married to Iran Angelo de Souza between 2007 and July 2019. The pair share two sons, Ian and Tiago, and a daughter, Alice.

So far, so normal – right?

Well, this is where things get weird.

Following Hulk’s split from Iran, he ended up getting together with her nieceannouncing he was dating Camila Angelo in October 2019.

The pair even married in September 2020.

We wonder if her aunt got an invite to the wedding?

To make matters even more complicated, Hulk and Camila welcomed their first child in April 2022, a daughter named Zaya.

A spokesman for the football star said in a statement to the Daily Mail at the time: “Hulk called the parents and the brother of Camila and told them the truth.”

Adding: “It was Hulk himself who made the information public because he had nothing to hide.”

And now, Hulk has announced on social media that he and Camila are expecting a second child.

He shared on his Instagram story: “Dropping by to thank you for the countless messages I have been receiving about my wife’s pregnancy. Another son, another blessing that God gave me.”

Hulk also revealed why the pair had kept this second pregnancy quiet so far…

“My children didn’t know until now and I had agreed with my wife to tell them when I picked them up to spend the holidays with me, only on the 16th,” the footballer explained.

“I told them the news, they were very happy. I knew they would tell other people and those people would pass it on to someone. I knew it was going to leak.”

The due date of the pair’s second child is not yet known.
