EMERSON ROYAL was left beaming after becoming a dad just hours after Tottenham's win over Sheffield United.

The defender had celebrated Spurs' comeback win over the Blades with his team-mates the day before the birth of his son.

Royal, 24, had a whirlwind weekend as he left the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium to travel 5,396 miles to a hospital in Montes Claros, Brazil.

He set off on a private jet alongside friends Wellington Cristiano, Hélio Azanha and Everton Ferreira.

Royal made it in time for the arrival of his baby boy and shared the news of his birth on Instagram as he posted two incredible pictures.

One snap shows the Brazilian cutting his son's umbilical cord while the second includes his partner Estela Braga, 26, for a family selfie.

"Son, we love you so much."

Royal and Estela received plenty of support as hundreds left comments on the social media post.

Former Spurs star Lucas Moura commented: "Glory be to GOD! May GOD bless this family you are forming."

Meanwhile Royal has enjoyed a good start with Tottenham making four appearances and scoring once in the Premier League.
