Per a report by AZ on Tuesday, Bayern Munich’s Joshua Kimmich announced that his girlfriend, Lina Meyer, is expecting their first child!

The Germany international met his girlfriend in 2013 when he played for RB Leipzig. She studied law and worked at the Leipzig’s team store. When Kimmich transferred to Bayern in 2015, Lina stayed in Leipzig to complete her studies. Their long-distance relationship lasted until 2017, when Lina finished her studies and moved to Munich to be with Kimmich.

Since moving to Munich, Meyer can be seen in the Allianz Arena for every home game. She usually likes to stay in the stands after the game to let Kimmich have the attention to himself. However, Lina can often be seen by Kimmich’s side in public, especially at FC Bayern celebrations. The couple made the news when they chose to ride BMX bikes to the championship celebrations last year.

Kimmich (24) is three years younger than 27-year old Meyer and the couple are considered young to be first-time parents in Germany. According to World Atlas, the average age in Germany for first-time pregnancies in 29.20 years.

Congratulations to Joshua and Lina! We wish them well.
