Manchester United loanee Donny van de Beek has welcomed the birth of his first child with Dennis Bergkamp’s daughter Estelle.
In a post on his Instagram account, Van de Beek said: “Welcome to the world Lomée van de Beek. Proud of you Estelle Bergkamp.”
David de Gea, Wesley Sneijder and Ryan Babel were among the footballers to wish the Dutchman well. His old club Ajax added: “Congratulations Donny & Estelle.”
Van de Beek is currently on loan at Everton after leaving Old Trafford temporarily in January due to a lack of first-team chances. Since arriving at Goodison Park, Van de Beek has been an integral part of the Toffees squad.
He started his first six fixtures in the Premier League on Merseyside but in recent weeks has been missing due to a thigh injury picked up before the West Ham fixture. The 24-year-old would have missed Everton’s victory over United on Saturday had he been fit as he is ineligible to play against his parent club.
