Barcelona, June 4 (IANS) FC Barcelona captain Xavi Hernandez and his wife Nuria Cunillera will be parents for the first time, the player disclosed at an event here.
“I and my wife Nuria, the most important person in my life, will go to Qatar, but soon we will be three. Although we don’t know the name yet, or the (baby’s) socio number, we know we will be three Catalans in Qatar,” the midfield maestro was quoted as saying by Efe on Wednesday.
Hernandez was speaking at an event organised by the Catalan club before his departure to join Qatar’s Al-Sadd club.
Nuria, who married Xavi two years ago at the wedding held in the Spanish coastal region of Costa Brava, is expected to give birth to their first baby in late 2015.
