Congratulations are in order for Alvaro Morata and Alice Campello! The Chelsea striker and his wife of one year have become parents for the first time as the Italian model welcomed twins boys Leonardo and Alessandro this weekend.
The Spanish pro footballer took to Instagram on Sunday afternoon to announce the arrival of newly borns, with three photos of the duo and their kids while they are still in the hospital
The first photo features the new mom lying on a hospital bed with the couple's sons as her husband poses for the snap by her side.
In the caption, he wrote a touching message that read, "And the day arrived ... July 29, 2018, a day I will never forget. The wait has been long, very long. It has been only 9 months but for us it has been like 3 years."
Here's the post, check it out.
Y llegó el día... 29 de julio de 2018, un día que jamas olvidaré. La espera ha sido larga, muy muy larga. Han sido tan solo 9 meses pero para nosotros han sido como 3 años. No tengo palabras para darte las gracias Alice, gracias por hacerme el regalo más bonito e increíble del mundo. Cada día desde que te conozco doy gracias a Dios por haberte puesto en mi camino, eres l piedra angular de mi vida. Estos meses has luchado como una leona, no puedo estar más orgulloso de ti; noches en el hospital, días deshidratada, días enteros juntos en la cama sin poder ni movernos... pero al final llegó el día, llegó y todo mereció la pena. Bienvenidos al mundo Alessandro y Leonardo. Solo pido que tengáis salud y seáis felices con el amor que se respira en nuestra casa, en nuestra familia. Por último quiero agradecer a los doctores, de aquí y de allí que nos han ayudado en estos meses tan duros, y en especial a todos la gente que trabaja en el hospital dell’Angelo por su amabilidad y sensibilidad
In English, the caption continues,
I have no words to thank you Alice, thank you for making me the most beautiful and incredible gift in the world. Every day since I know you I thank God for having put you in my way, you are the cornerstone of my life.
These months you have fought like a lioness, I can not be more proud of you; nights in the hospital, dehydrated days, whole days together in bed without being able to move... but in the end the day arrived, it arrived and everything was worth it.
Welcome to the world Alessandro and Leonardo. I only ask that you have health and be happy with the love that is breathed in our house, in our family.
Finally I want to thank the doctors, here and there who have helped us in these hard months, and especially to all the people who work in the hospital dell'Angelo for their kindness and sensitivity.
Alice, meanwhile, also share a photo of the complete family on her Instagram, captioning the post,
I could not love my family any more and I could not be happier than that. It is inexplicable. Thank you for everything you did and do for me and thank you for being so close throughout pregnancy and today. You're the best husband and dad in the world, my love
