Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas has revealed on Instagram that he is to be a father for the second time.
Fabregas posted a picture of an ultrasound scan to his account, confirming the news that girlfriend Daniella Semaan is pregnant along with the message: 'Another princess on the way...!! Well done my baby.'
Fabregas became a father for the first time when his girlfriend gave birth to his daughter in 2013. She has two children from a previous relationship.
The Spanish international is enjoying life on and off the pitch with Chelsea having helped his new team to the top of the Premier League table. So far this season he has already racked up an impressive 14 assists in his first 20 games, while he has also contributed two goals.
The former Arsenal ace, who joined Chelsea in a deal worth around £28 million from Barcelona in the summer, was spotted recently enjoying life on a Caribbean holiday with Semaan but now has months of late nights and changing nappies to look forward to.

Other stars in attendance included Actors Idris Elba and Tara Reid, as well as pop group Little Mix.
The Chelsea midfielder will have to have his full attention back on the pitch come the weekend, with the Blues facing a tricky tie against Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium tomorrow. Boss Jose Mourinho has confirmed this morning that goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois is a doubt for the game with a broken thumb.
Speaking to the press this morning, the Special One also confirmed he had no plans to make any signings in this transfer window.
