The ex-wife of Brazilian soccer star Hulk has made a cutting Instagram post after he revealed that her niece was pregnant with his fourth child.
Givanildo Vieira de Sousa, 35, known as Hulk for his brawny physique, announced last month that his ex-wife’s niece Camila, 32, to whom he is now married, was pregnant with his baby.
He posted a saccharine ‘gender reveal’ video on Saturday of him cradling Camila’s baby bump as the pair gazed into each other’s eyes to celebrate that they are having a daughter.
Iran Angelo, 33, who was married to the football ace for 12 years before he shacked up with Camila in July 2019, shared a scything Instagram post that same day.
‘Lies and disloyalties are like knives, they cut our flesh, make us bleed, dry up, die a little inside,’ the mother-of-three wrote alongside an image of a clock that read: ‘Only time has the skill to unmask appearances, reveal lies and show someone’s true character.’
The biting caption continued: ‘But for the one who has God, this dying means being reborn. I am reborn with each disappointment, each lie unveiled, because Jesus made me strong. Thank you Lord, for another deliverance.’

Reports of the relationship first emerged in December 2019, just five months after Hulk’s marriage with Iran ended in July of the same year.
Hulk and Camila, a doctor, married in September last year when he was still playing for Chinese side Shangai SIPG following his split from the mother of his three other children – two sons and daughter.
Alongside an Instagram post showing him lifting his partner off the ground, he wrote: ‘Today with a heart full of gratitude to God, I come to share with you that for the fourth time I am being blessed with another child
‘My heart overflows with so much happiness and I can only say thank you God.
‘We are already looking forward to receiving you child, and we love you unconditionally.
‘Come full of health my baby.’
He also shared a video of he and his wife as he lifted her into the air and kissed her while she grabbed onto the baby scans.
It is believed Mr de Sousa told his family about his relationship with Camila in December 2019 – including his three school-age children Ian, Thiago, and Alice.
A spokesman for the striker said in a statement at the time: ‘Hulk called the parents and the brother of Camila and told them the truth.
‘It was Hulk himself who made the information public because he had nothing to hide.
‘His position is transparency and he wants to avoid lies and malicious comments.’
After debuting for his national team in 2009, the Brazilian midfielder was one of the first superstars to take the plunge and join the Chinese Super League back in 2016.

Hulk previously said through his advisers that he had been transparent about his relationship with Camila (pictured)
He joined from Russian side Zenit St Petersburg and was the second highest earner in the whole league with a £320,000-a-week contract.
He was called Hulk after fans noticed a resemblance to actor Lou Ferrigno, who played the Marvel character in the 1970s television series The Incredible Hulk.
He signed for Atletico Mineiro on a two-year contract in January 2021 after scoring 77 goals in 145 appearances for Shangai SIPG.
His ex-wife said she has been caused ‘great pain’ since he began seeing her niece.
However Hulk claimed she treated him ‘like a monster’, and insisted he never began seeing Camila until after he and his ex-wife separated.
‘I never had a relationship with Camila when I was married,’ the footballer previously claimed.
‘I am a man. I was not happy in my marriage. I had countless reasons..
‘Camila came to China. I don’t think I’m an ugly person and I’m young. Camila is young and extremely beautiful. We ended up getting involved. We were single.’
