The growing Modrić clan will soon see another member!

Luka Modrić and his wife Vanja are expecting their third child! Son Ivano (7) and daughter Ema (4) will be the older siblings to a brother or sister this autumn as Vanja is said to be 17 weeks pregnant, reports Jutarnji List on May 16, 2017.

This wonderful news no doubt adds to the crown of happiness for the Modrić family lately. Luka, the Real Madrid midfielder who has been living in Spain with his family since 2012, is also celebrating a return to the Champions League final which will take place on June 3rd between Real Madrid and Juventus. 

Modrić has not yet announced the pregnancy, but that is nothing out of the ordinary – it would be safe to assume that with the upcoming Champions League prep and the hope to clinch the La Liga season in first place, the 32-year-old has no time to deal with the media.

The third child will arrive for the Modrić’s some months after the couple celebrates their seventh wedding anniversary, although the couple has been together for much longer. Nearly thirteen years ago, Vanja Bosnar worked at Zdravko Mamić’s agency, and her mother, Vesna Juraić at NK Dinamo as head of accounting. Luka, from the small Dalmatian village of Modrići near Obrovac, was 19, and Vanja 24 when they met at a cafe in Zagreb. After six years of dating and when Luka was already playing for Tottenham Hotspur, they married. 

On June 11th one year later, a wedding was performed at a church where they exchanged their vows.

“Thank God that our Luka finally found the time to marry in the church,” joked Mladen Grdović who performed at the Westin hotel where the wedding reception was held. 

One year later, the family moved from the U.K. to Spain with two-year-old Ivano as Luka had just signed a five-year contract with Real Madrid. In 2013, their daughter Ema was born.
