Sergio Ramos may never have scored a hat-trick in his senior professional career, but the Spain and Real Madrid captain has managed a treble off the pitch as he announced the birth of a baby boy, Alejandro, with his partner Pilar Rubio on Instagram.

 

Ramos reportedly started dating Rubio, a Spanish presenter, actor and model, towards the end of 2012 and the couple have added two bundles of joy—Sergio Jr, three, and Marco, two,— since then.

 

Ramos, 31, has won everything there is to win at the club and international level both.

He made his debut for the Spanish national side in 2005 and when he played the full 90 minutes in La Furia Roja’s 1-1 draw with Germany on Friday night, he became only the second player in Spanish history to have accumulated 150 caps.

The tough-tackling centre-back, who has a propensity to accumulate yellow and red cards, has been captain of the Spanish national side since 2016 and of Real Madrid since 2015.

While he is yet to win a major trophy with La Furia Roja as a skipper, he’s led the Los Blancos to arguably their most glorious era since in over 50 years as the capital outfit have won UEFA Champions League twice and the La Liga once since he was given the armband.

While he was on national team duty during the ongoing international break, Ramos was given leave by the federation to attend the birth of his son.
Since Spain’s next match, a high-profile friendly against South American giants Argentina takes place in Madrid on Tuesday, Ramos could still feature but no official statement about his participation has yet been made.
