American boxing sensation Ryan Garcia made an incredible double revelation on Friday night, announcing the birth of his child and a divorce from his model wife in a matter of minutes.
The 25-year-old, who goes by the nickname ‘King Ry’, first shared some exciting news with his Instagram followers, posting ‘to announce my beautiful first born son’
Alongside a photo of the child – believed to be his second with wife Andrea Celina and his third overall – he revealed that the labor took just eight minutes and that he ‘loves him so much already.’
Incredibly, though, within an hour of the first post, Garcia was back on social media with some more news, this time announcing his divorce from the mother of his son.
In a now-deleted post, he said: ‘As I step into a new chapter in my life, it’s with a heavy heart to share that Drea and I have decided to divorce.
Ryan Garcia’s wife posted a series of photos revealing the birth of their new child on Friday
Andrea Celina and the US boxing star have been together since 2019, and are married
Garcia, though, dropped a bombshell with a second post on his Instagram less than an hour on
After announcing the birth of his first son, he announced he and his wife are getting divorced
‘While this decision marks the end of our marriage, it’s important to emphasize that our relationship as co-parents remains our top priority.
‘Throughout our years together, Dea has been an incredible partner and an even more extraordinary mother to our two children. I’m deeply grateful for the years we shared and for her unwavering commitment to our family.’
No similar message has been shared from Andrea’s side. In fact, the only post uploaded to her account was a grab on her story of Eminem’s ‘Love the Way You Lie’, perhaps hinting at a disagreement between the two parties.
Garcia has two other daughters, one from a previous relationship and one with Andrea Celina
Celina regularly posts photos of her life to her 141,000 Instagram followers, but has yet to post anything about the divorce
Garcia’s post was on his Instagram for around 12 hours before being taken down, and it is currently unclear where the pair stand, having just brought a son into the world together.
Garcia and Celina have been together since 2019, but had also never publicly announced their marriage to the world – so it is unclear how long they’ve been wed.
The super featherweight 24-1 boxer is currently looking for his next bout in an impressive career that has only seen him lose once, to Gervonta Davis in April last year.
Last time out, he beat Oscar Duarte in Houston – and it looks to be Rolando Romero or Devin Haney next up.
