Iniesta to become a father

20 Sep

Andrés Iniesta (Barcelona) has issued a statement on his website announcing that he and longtime partner Anna are expecting their first child, due next summer. The news was leaked earlier today, and later confirmed by Iniesta on his website, Facebook and Twitter. Iniesta says that “it’s a time filled with happiness for all of us” but is “very hurt by the ugly way in which [the news] was published.” I wish Andrés and Anna all the best, and hope the press does a better job of respecting their privacy in the future (I know, that’s a lot to hope).
