Givanildo Vieira de Sousa, known by many as Hulk, managed to get Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Neymar to send his sons a shout-out on their birthday, and their reaction is the wholesome content we needed today.
The former FC Porto and Zenit Saint Petersburg forward, who is now with Atlético Mineiro in Brazil, took to Instagram to wish his sons, Ian and Tiago, a happy birthday.
Instead of a standard gift, the 35-year-old persuaded some of the world’s most powerful people to send a special, personalised message to the lads.
He gathered his family in the living room before displaying the messages on his television. Their looks are priceless.
Hulk wrote in an Instagram post, “My children Ian and Tiago had their birthdays on July 20,” Hulk wrote. “Ian is 14 years old, and Tiago is 12 years old.
“They asked for nothing material as a gift, but rather something unusual and surprising.
“Nothing beats being congratulated by the best in the world for those who are passionate about football! [My] gratitude goes to my idols and friends Neymar, Lionel Messi, and Cristiano Ronaldo. “
Hulk isn’t the only player who has delivered a captivating birthday message to his family. Mauro Icardi of Paris Saint-Germain sent his stepson Valentino Mane a special video featuring some of the world’s best players back in 2019.
When it came to this one, no expense was spared, from Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo to Luka Modric and Paulo Dybala.
