Andres Iniesta set to become a father

Spanish World Cup hero Andres Iniesta is going to be a

father.

The Barcelona midfielder made the announcement on his Facebook

page Monday, saying ”it was a moment filled with happiness for all

of us.” Iniesta scored in Spain’s 1-0 World Cup final victory over

the Netherlands in July.

The 26-year-old Iniesta was a key member of Spain’s 2008

European Championship-winning team. He also helped Barcelona to a

record six major titles in one campaign, including the 2009

Champions League.
