Asamoah Gyan has something to celebrate with birth of daughter

Ghana striker Asamoah Gyan has confirmed the birth of his first ever daughter in the midst of a difficult past few weeks which sees his musician friend, Castro still missing.

The Al Ain ace welcomed the birth of his first daughter earlier this week.

Gyan, who is already a father to three boys considers the birth of his new baby girl a massive relieve following weeks of tribulation.

The 28-year-old remains unaware of the whereabouts of his musical partner Castro who is feared dead after drowning alongside a female friend in a lake during a holiday hangout in Ada over a fortnight ago.

The birth of the new baby girl who is yet to be named therefore comes as a massive source of joy for the Black Stars captain in the midst of all his recent difficulties.

“Babies are the best gift in life, she'll fill my heart with oodles of love and joy since the past days have been bizzare, praises be to God,” Gyan confirmed on his official website:

His older brother, Baffour also told the website: “The newest baby girl has been received with joy and blessing in a time of darkness."

Gyan is now a father of four kids having already seen to the birth of Floyd (8), Frederick (6) and Rapheal (2).

    Heartless and unappreciated Ghanaians! Give the guy a break and let him enjoy the joy of a child without worrying about your sorry life. Instead of congratulating the guy and wish him well, you are trying to fill his moment with misery. Pathetic!! CONGRATULATION GYAN!! BTW I am not a Ghanaian.

    Congrats gyan! Daughters are blessings to mankind but I ll urge u to watch yourself critically because I can see that a lot of people wants your downfall! Don't eat from outside! Don't eat from strangers and don't accept any gifts from friends and strangers alike! U have enough bodyguards? If not, is about time u employed about three or four bodyguards esp when u are in Ghana becasue the way things are going, u have to be extremely vigilant! Peipel want your downfall and is about that time, u retreat and examine your life! Stop the rap and the music becasue, the Ghanaian music scene is full of dark powers and juju and I know what am saying!! Kwaada has been my buddy for a long time and when he had his problems, he told me a lot about some guys in the music scene and it was even sad where he was recovering! Forget the music and concentrate on your football career otherwise they ll sacrifice u!

    This dark times is as a result of his doggy roles he played as black stars captain, failing to speak truth, taking the whole nation to ransome, breaking the hearts of innocent people who goes on their knees to pray for them each time they are playing etc, etc. Later the people will be mad and ruin insults and curses on them.

    Young man congratulations! The good Lord is with you and will always be with you! One of the major reason why Africa as a country is the way it is because of our crabology attitude (we all wish to be the low level). May God grant you with a new strength to surge forward. More grace and strength!!!

    Gyan, four children at your age is too much. I think the children are enough for you, please end it there. Nevertheless, congratulaions and warmly welcome to the new baby girl
