Sao Paulo:

Brazil striker Neymar says he has become the father of a baby boy.

Neymar says in a statement posted on his website that Davi Lucca was born in Sao Paulo on Wednesday.

The 19-year-old Santos striker says Davi is "2.8 kilograms (6 pounds) of pure happiness."

He says both child and mother are doing fine.
