Just weeks after rounding off a rollercoaster Premier League season on a high, Arsenal team-mates Aaron Ramsdale and Fabio Vieira have both announced they are expecting their first child with their respective partners.
Goalkeeper Ramsdale and his fiancee, Georgina Irwin, shared their news via a heartwarming, emotional social media video yesterday, just hours after midfielder Vieira and partner Carina Raquel also revealed their pregnancy to the world.
Ramsdale posted footage on Instagram showing a positive test on top of a baby outfit, with the words ‘I love you so much Daddy’ adorably stitched onto it.
The clip then showed him beaming upon hearing the news before he raced across the room to jump across the bed and embrace Georgina. Later, a shot of their baby scan was shown, before the couple and the bump posed in front of the camera.
The 25-year-old, who enjoyed a fine campaign between the sticks for Mikel Arteta’s side, wrote a caption that simply read: ‘Half of me, half of you. Baby Ramsdale.’

Vieira, meanwhile, is also on the verge of becoming a father for the first time.
Revealing the pregnancy in a similar fashion, he uploaded a photo alongside his expectant partner on social media to his hundreds of thousands of followers.
‘The greatest adventure of our lives,’ Vieira wrote. ‘We can’t wait to meet you.’
The endearing news for Ramsdale comes after he got down on one knee to propose to Georgina in August, with a romantic hotel getaway forming the perfect backdrop.
Pictures shared by the former Sheffield United and Bournemouth man showed his partner entering a room filled with flowers, balloons and pictures of the couple.
Ramsdale had also arranged the words ‘Marry me?’ in large letters across the room.
He began dating Georgina, a British Airways flight attendant, back in 2019.

It is not known when Vieira and Carina began dating, although he first appeared on her Instagram profile in the summer of 2021.
The couple had taken the time to pose for a kiss on a beach in the Maldives.
Arsenal finished second in the top-flight last season despite spending much of the year ahead of eventual champions Manchester City.
Ramsdale made 41 appearances across all competitions, including every single match in the Premier League, while Vieira played 33 matches in total.
The good news keeps on coming for stopper Ramsdale, with the England international having recently signed a new long-term deal at the Emirates.
