'Born again' Muamba 'blessed with' 'miracle' second baby

   Jun 29, 12:17 pm

London, June 29 (ANI): Miracle football player Fabrice Muamba has reportedly become a father for the second time on Friday.

According to The Sun, the Bolton star was 'dead' for 78 minutes after he collapsed in an FA Cup tie in March 2012, taking 15 defibrillator shocks to restart his heart, adding that the footballer retired from the game last year.

The former Premier League ace told his fans on Twitter that his wife Shauna had given birth to their second child, a boy named Matthew Josiah Muamba, adding that both mother and baby are recovering well.

Muamba's wife later re-tweeted a message from a well-wisher that their baby was a 'gift from God'.

According to Muamba's friends, the retired footballer believes that the baby is a special blessing, adding that he and his wife feel lucky that the baby was born given Muamba's near-death experience of last year.

The couple, who wed in a castle in October 2012, have a four-year-old son Joshua and learned that they were expecting again just before Christmas, the report added. (ANI)
