Arsenal star Cedric Soares and stunning wife Filipa Brandao announce arrival of first child after secret pregnancy

ARSENAL star Cedric Soares and his stunning wife have surprised fans by announcing the arrival of their first child.

The Gunners’ right-back kept the news of Filipa Brandao’s pregnancy secret until the couple unveiled their bundle of joy on Tuesday.

Cedric posted a photo of him on social media cradling his daughter Siena in his arms alongside the word ‘Blessed’ and heart emoticons.

And Filipa posted her own photos of the new-born, writing: “Siena. Love is our true destiny. We do not find the meaning of life by ourselves alone, we find it with another.

The brunette and her footballer husband had made no mention of any pregnancy before the surprise photos of their first child.

And none of the recent pics Filipa posted on Instagram had revealed a tell-tale baby bump.

However, the 31-year-old revealed earlier this year she had been mostly uploading throwback pictures while she was careful to place a designer bag over her belly in others.

A week before going public with the news, she wrote alongside a photo of her wearing a pair of tight leather trousers: “In a world over exposed, the coolest thing you can do is maintain your mystery.”

One of the pictures she posted on Tuesday showed her with her hands on her belly as her husband cuddled her from behind with his on the same spot.

Filipa had also took to Instagram earlier this year to congratulate Cedric on his Arsenal transfer.

The Gunners landed the 29-year-old on a loan deal from Southampton in February until the end of the season before the move was made permanent.

The 29-year-old was born in Germany but moved to Portugal where his parents were both born as a child.

Cedric and his Portuguese wife, who is two years his senior, tied the knot in June last year at a ceremony at a luxury hotel in Sintra near Lisbon after dating for four years.
