Landon Donovan


Congratulations are in order for Landon Donovan!

The retired professional soccer player has welcomed his first child with wife Hannah Bartell.

"The greatest joy and most love I've ever experienced," he shared on Twitter early Wednesday afternoon while posing with his newborn son and wife. "Welcome to the world Talon Bartell Donovan."

In the candid shot, the couple snuggles up for a family photo while wearing what appears to be pajamas. And yes ladies, you get to see Landon's nipple front and center.

Throughout the pregnancy journey, Landon kept fans updated with a few special photos on social media. Right before Christmas time, the couple went to the doctor where Landon couldn't help but share an ultrasound photo.

Been keeping a secret for months now. Daddy flipflops, mommy flipflops ????????????

"That's a strong looking spine!" he wrote on Facebook. "6 weeks away from the next chapter in life."

Fans also likely couldn't forget the adorable announcement in September. "Been keeping a secret for months now," he shared with a photo of a few important sandals. "Daddy flipflops, mommy flipflops." Clever, right?

To top it all off, the retired Los Angeles Galaxy and U.S. National Team player married Hannah in a low key ceremony along the San Diego waterfront this past May. The wedding featured several teammates including Omar Gonzalez, Todd Dunivant and Brian Rowe.

"I've never been happier," Landon wrote on social media when sharing a photo from his first dance. "Hope you all had a great weekend."

Safe to say retirement life hasn't been too bad at all!
