Super Eagles and Warri Wolves striker, Gbolahan Fuad Salami and his wife, Lolade welcomed their first child, a boy, early Sunday morning.
Lolade gave birth to the baby around 4 am at a hospital in Surulere, Lagos.
An elated Salami in a chat with SportingLife expressed joy over the arrival of the baby, describing it as a sign of good things to come for his family.
He said the arrival will open a way for his long dream move to Europe.
The naming ceremony, according to Salami, will hold next week Sunday.
Salami emerged the Glo Premier League’s highest goal scorer with 17 goals at the end of the season.
“It is good news to our family and I am happy. I thank God the baby and mother are doing fine. I thank God for everything he has done for me this year. I won the league’s highest goal scorers award and today I am welcoming my first son. I give all thanks to God. I hope this will open a way for my move to Europe which has been my dream,” Salami said to SportingLife.
