Brazilian footballer Hulk who broke up his marriage then married his wife's niece, is facing relentless attacks from his ex-wife, Iran Angelo. This comes after the Atletico Mineiro forward recently announced he was expecting his first child with Camila Angelo.

The popular footballer left their three school-age children with Souza when he ended their 12-year marriage in July 2019. Last month, Hulk took to social media as he confirmed that his 32-year-old wife was expecting his fourth child. The post included photos of them holding ultrasound images of their unborn baby. 

His post included an emotional message that captioned a photo of him lifting his partner off the ground and holding the ultrasound pics of their baby. “Today with a heart full of gratitude to God, I come to share with you that for the fourth time I am being blessed with another child. My heart overflows with so much happiness and I can only say thank you God,” the post read. It is not yet known if they are expecting a boy or a girl.

According to the Daily Star, Hulk's devastated ex-wife Souza claimed that she has always treated Camila like her own daughter and has been lashing out at Hulk. She said that she already “died inside” when he left her for a new main squeeze, let alone marrying her own niece. 

She previously poured her thinly veiled emotions on her Instagram account, as she described how Hulk’s betrayal was so huge it felt like it would tear her heart out. “Lies and disloyalties are like knives. They cut our flesh, make us bleed, dry up, die a little inside,” Iran wrote.

The Brazilian striker, whose real name is Givanildo Vieira de Souza, announced that he was dating a younger relative right after ending his marriage. Reports and photos of the blonde Camila surfaced in December 2019, after which he broke the news of his relationship to his family alongside his three children with Souza - Thiago, Ian and Alice. A spokesman for Hulk said in a statement that he had called Camila’s parents and her brother to tell the truth. 

“It was Hulk himself who made the information public because he had nothing to hide. His position is transparency and he wants to avoid lies and malicious comments.” Hulk and Camila tied the knot in September 2020.

Since then, Hulk claimed that he never had a relationship with Camila when he was married, slamming Souza’s allegations of infidelity. "I am a man. I was not happy in my marriage. I had countless reasons,” Hulk said.
