NEYMAR has announced the birth of his baby girl with his model girlfriend Bruna Biancardi in an emotional Instagram post.
The world’s most expensive footballer was given permission by new club Al-Hilal to fly 7,073 miles back to Brazil this week to witness the birth of his second child.
And their new arrival came into the world this morning – and it didn’t take long for the samba superstar to confirm the news to his 215 million Instagram followers.
Neymar wrote: “Our Mavie has come to complete our lives. Welcome, daughter! You are already loved very much by us. Thank you for choosing us.”
There were also numerous intimate images, including the couple kissing their daughter and Neymar bathing her.
Bruna, 29, revealed the bundle of joy’s name means “my life” as a wave of congratulatory messages hit the comments.
Neymar’s Saudi club Al-Hilal was one of the first to offer his congratulations, while Brazilian Olympic 100m hurdler Maurren Maggi commented “God bless you.”
Mavie is the couple’s first child together, while Neymar already has a 12-year-old son, Davi Lucca, from his previous relationship with Carolina Dantas.
Former Barcelona star Neymar has been in a relationship with Bruna since 2021, and the couple went public in January last year.
She announced back in April that they were expecting their first child, before shocking reports emerged that Neymar had been accused of cheating on his modeling partner.

The Al Hilal star was filmed partying with two mystery girls at a Spanish nightclub, after which Bruna posted about the incident on Instagram, expressing her “disappointment.”
She wrote: “Hello, I am aware of what has happened and once again I am disappointed, but in the final stages of my pregnancy my focus and worries are on my daughter and that is all I will be thinking about at the moment.”
“Thank you all for the messages of love.”
Brazil’s record goalscorer apologized to Bruna in an emotional social media statement back in June following allegations of fraud.
He wrote: “Bru. I do this for you and your family. Justify the unjustified. No need for. But I need you in OUR life
“I saw how exposed you were, how much you suffered from all of this and how much you want to be by my side. And I’m standing next to you.
“I have wronged you all. I risk saying I’m wrong every day, on and off the field. Only I solve my mistakes in my private life at home, in intimacy with my family and friends…
“All of this affected one of the most extraordinary people in my life. The woman I dreamed of following next to me, the mother of my child.
“Did it affect his family, which is now my family? She touched on their intimacy in such a special moment, motherhood.”
Neymar left Paris Saint-Germain, who paid Barcelona a record £198 million for him in 2017, for the Middle East this summer.
Al-Hilal initially spent £77.6m to bring him to Saudi Arabia on a mega-week deal worth £2.5m.
His team made their debut with six wins against Al-Fayha before Neymar opened his account with his new club in the Champions League against Tehran before flying to his home country.
