Nigeria and Chelsea midfielder Mikel Obi took to Instagram on Friday to announce and celebrate the arrival of a set of twins.
Mikel posted a picture of himself and the two new babies on the photo-sharing website, with him lying close to the twinsand wrapping his arms around them.
Underneath the picture, Mikel wrote: “My whole world in my arms. Welcome to the world, my angels. #twins.”
Interestingly, Mikel was just on Friday recalled into the Super Eagles after a lengthy absence.
Mikel has been in a steady relationship with his Russian girlfriend Olga Diyachenko for a long time, and the two have been rumoured to be planning marriage.
Olga posted recently on Instagram, reported by completesportsnigeria.con, that she was learning to cook and enjoy Nigerian meals.
