Didier Drogba, the former Ivorian footballer, celebrated his forty-fifth birthday in style by welcoming his first child with his new partner, Gabrielle Lemaire, on Saturday March 11, 2023.

Although the couple has yet to officially confirm the news, several sources close to the star have spilled the beans.

This is without doubt one of the best birthdays of his life since he was born.

The former captain of the Elephants of Côte d’Ivoire welcomed this Saturday, the day marking his 45th birthday, his first child with his new companion.

“Congratulations to Drogba and Gabrielle Lemaire, parents of a little boy born on March 11, his father’s birthday,” wrote Ivorian journalist Eloge Kuyo this weekend.

This birth marks the fourth child for Drogba, who is already the father of three children, Isaac, Iman and Kieran – born from his first marriage with Lalla Diakité.

At the moment, the former Chelsea striker and his new wife are both very tight-lipped about their private lives. They have yet to officially announce the news.
