John Obi Mikel has just announced that he has welcomed a set of twins via Instagram.
The Chelsea midfielder posted a photo of himself holding a cute set of twins with the caption, “My whole world in my arms. Welcome to the world my angels.”
Details like the gender of the twins or the mother have not been revealed.
It is expected that his Russian girlfriend, Olga Diyachenko is the mother of the kids, though it was never revealed that she was pregnant.
Olga Diyachenko and Mikel started dating in 2013 after reportedly meeting him in London where her millionaire father runs a chain of businesses.
She is also reportedly related to Chelsea’s Russian billionaire owner, Roman Abramovich.
According to the UK Sun, the Chelsea midfielder has a four-year-old son and a one-year-old daughter with two women he briefly dated.
Mikel, the report revealed, is very much involved in the lives of his son and daughter, splashing the whooping sum of N153m (£500,000) for a house in 2013 for the mother of his boy child.
However, his reps told the UK Sun that the midfielder is taking care of his kids and would want the issue to remain private.
“This is an entirely private matter,” a spokesperson for Mikel said.
“John provides for and cares for his children and will continue to do so. He asks that their privacy is respected.“
