Best birthday present ever? Ronaldo, Messi & Neymar wish Hulk's sons a happy birthday

Hulk celebrates

Hulk might just have won dad of the year for 2022 with the present he pulled off for his sons.

A birthday message from any of Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi or Neymar is enough to make a football fan’s special day completely unforgettable. So imagine having all three of them wishing you a happy birthday at once.

Well, Hulk’s two sons didn’t have to imagine, because the Brazilian winger pulled off a masterclass to make their big day all the more special this year.

Hulk’s two sons Ian, who turned 14, and Tiago, who turned 12, both celebrated their birthday on 20th July.

The 35-year-old explained on his Instagram that neither of the two wanted material gifts this year, but instead something different from the ordinary.

Considering that Hulk managed to put together a video message that included cameos from Messi, Ronaldo and Neymar, it’s fair to say they got exactly that and more. The video is seriously wholesome, as Ian and Tiago understandably appear to be completely made up with such a special and unique gift.

No physical gifts could ever buy the reaction that Hulk got from his children. What an incredible memory.

He’ll have a hard time topping this present next year, though, that is for sure.

Imagine being a football-obsessed youth and having two of the greatest players of all time, and one of the greatest players of the last decade, wish you a happy birthday? Truly a dream.

Hulk, now 35, unfortunately never quite lived up to the hype that so often surrounded him some years ago.

Rising to prominence as a result of his imposing figure – hence the nickname ‘Hulk’ – the Brazilian has been capped 49 times for his country and is remembered best for his spells at Porto and Zenit, as well as being a hit in EA’s FIFA video game series.

Hulk was regularly linked with a move to Europe’s top five leagues, but it unfortunately was not meant to be. Still, though, he has enjoyed a fine professional career for club and country, and being in a position where you can call on a favour from Neymar, Messi and Ronaldo is hardly a bad place to be in life.

Well done, Hulk. Dad of the year award definitely goes to you for this one.
