CRISTIANO RONALDO and Lionel Messi FINALLY put their historic rivalry aside to combine for a video message. The Manchester United star and Paris Saint-Germain ace both took time out of their days to wish Brazil striker Hulk’s sons a happy birthday.
The two young boys – Ian and Thiago – were stood in their living room as a clip came up on the screen – with their dad watching on.
PSG star Neymar was the first to give them a congratulatory message. Messi then appeared and added a short comment as the boys became even more stunned. And the video was then rounded off with a clip from United superstar Ronaldo.
The pair swiftly ran over to Hulk and hugged him in a loving manner after he handed them a birthday present they will never forget. Hulk, who currently plays for Atletico Mineiro, has a somewhat unique personal life.
Back in September, the former Porto and Zenit St Petersburg forward announced he was expecting his fourth child with his NIECE. He confirmed Camila Angelo was expecting in an Instagram post which included footage of the couple kissing each other.
Brazilian star Hulk started dating the 32-year-old – niece of his ex-wife Iran Angelo – in late 2019 after ending his 12-year relationship with his former lover just a few months earlier.
The loved-up pair married in March 2020 while Hulk was still playing for Chinese side Shangai SIPG following his split from the mother of his two sons and daughter.
He then made headlines again earlier this month after taking four hours to produce a urine sample for drug testing.
It came after he lost almost an entire stone during a match.
He ran his socks off and was left so dehydrated that he claims he drank 30 litres of water – but still struggled to produce the urine.
