Five years, three children, one appointment
Griezmann becomes a father only on April 8th
First the professional contract, then the birth of three children in three different years: if Antoine Griezmann had to choose one day of the year to celebrate, it would be April 8th. However, the number of births is not (yet) a record.
Antoine Griezmann is the world champion, the best performer at FC Barcelona, in short, one of the best footballers in Europe. The French international is also a family man, his son Alba was born on April 8, 2021. The 29-year-old proudly tweeted the birth of his third child at 10:24 am by Caesarean section. It thus caused a whole chain of enthusiastic, inquisitive, and sometimes even curious reactions. Because one day in the year it is enough for Griezmann to congratulate his offspring on their birthday.
The attacker has been in a relationship with Erika Chopyrina since 2011 and has been married for nearly four years. They have three children together and they also have one thing in common. Her birthday, exactly until today: Mia, was born on April 8th, 2016. Amaro, born on April 8th, 2018. Now Alba, she was born on April 8th, 2021. An amazing achievement. If you scroll back when entering the dates on the calendar, you’ll notice that in Griezmann, wanting to have children seems to be the theme of summer vacation. According to Reuters, the probability of this coincidence occurring naturally is 1: 17.8 million.
However, regardless of this, the fact that it should only be brought by very few families. Which at the same time raises questions. Will there be three small cakes for Christmas on April 8th or one big cake? “April 8th is definitely our date,” Choberina wrote on Instagram. However, three children on the same date of birth are not enough to set a record, as reported by Reuters. The American Cummins family brought five children into the world on February 20, between 1952 and 1966.
In order to complete the calendar gimmick, April 8th is also a crucial date in the career of the French player of choice 89 times. In 2010 he signed his first professional contract for Real Sociedad San Sebastian on the same day, moving to Atlético de Madrid in 2014 and then to Barcelona in 2019.
