Congratulations, Mats Hummels! FC Bayern’s world champion became a father for the first time on Thursday when his wife Cathy gave birth to a healthy baby boy. The timing was perfect as Hummels has not been included in the squad to face Bayer Leverkusen for the first game of 2018 because of a lack of fitness following adductor problems. It means he can now enjoy some quality time with his young family.
