Former Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata’s wife is in intensive care in hospital after giving birth to their fourth child.
Stunning Italian Alice Campello is receiving specialist care at the University Hospital of Navarra in Madrid after suffering ‘complications.’
Morata, who had a troubled spell at Stamford Bridge after moving to Chelsea from Real Madrid in 2017 for £60million, revealed the health drama as he announced the birth of the couple’s first daughter Bella and posted adorable photos of her sleeping in pink and white pyjamas.

The 30-year-old Spanish international said: ‘Bella was born on the 9th and she is wonderful.
‘Unfortunately, after the delivery went very well, the mother has started to have complications that have scared us a lot.
‘Right now she is in the intensive care unit of the University Hospital of Navarra in Madrid where she is being cared for by the best doctors and little by little she is recovering very well… she is very strong.’

The footballer gave no more details on his social media of what the ‘complications’ had been.
An identical message appeared on model-turned-businesswoman Alice’s Instagram.
Morata was left red-faced last month after his wife pretended her waters had broken.
She showed the moment she pranked the Atletico de Madrid frontman, spraying a bottle of water through her jogging bottoms and leaving a puddle on the floor while stood in the hallway before calling for her husband as he watched TV in the next room.
The practical joke ended with her bursting into laugher after he expressed his concern.
The couple have twins, four-year-old Alessandro and Leandro, and a younger boy called Edoardo who is two.
Alice was alone with the twins and a nanny when armed intruders broke into the family home north of Madrid in June 2019 and confronted her when Morata was thousands of miles away in the Faroe Islands for a Spain Euro 2020 qualifier.

No-one was hurt in the drama but the Italian beauty admitted afterwards: ‘I’m still upset and I think I’ll be afraid for a long time to come.
‘I think this is one of those things that are not easily forgotten, one of those things that makes you realize how much love and life is worth.’
Venice-born Alice, 27, moved to Madrid in the summer of 2016 ahead of his transfer to Chelsea when he left Juventus after his loan deal with the Italian side ended.

He went down on bended knee as magician Antonio Diaz turned Alice away from Morata and pretended he was going to perform a trick on her.
Onlookers at the packed Rialto theatre in Madrid applauded the touching moment before recording it on their mobile phones.
Last July Alice revealed her fourth pregnancy was not going that smoothly saying: ‘The little girl is giving me a hard time of things. I hope she’ll be good when she’s born.’
