“He was born on Monday, May 3, weighs 3,965 kilograms and measures 50 centimeters,” Witsel and his wife Rafaella Szabo recall. The Borussia Dortmund defensive midfielder already has two daughters. Maï-Li is about six years old, Evy is about 4 years old. In the summer of 2015, a few months after the birth of Maï-Li, Witsel and Szabo, who has Romanian roots, got married in a castle in Spa. They had been engaged since 2013.
The birth of his son is a great boost for Witsel. He is still recovering from a serious Achilles tendon injury. His recovery is going smoothly, although it remains a question mark whether he will be fit for the European Football Championship.
