The 28-year-old player told Hello! magazine: "Since I found out the good news in November, I've been scoring more goals.

"Now our lives are going to change a lot and in such a good way. Soon we will be a family of five - Daniela, me, our two dogs Dobby and Agua, and our new baby - and I couldn't be happier.

"I'm so excited about the baby and that I'm going to be a father."

Jimenez said they had begun to consider marriage.

"After the baby's born, we'll settle down into our new routine and then we'll think about marriage," he said.

"I believe in a love that lasts forever, that when you're with the right person and you're in love, you can do anything."

She told the magazine: "During the World Cup in Russia in 2018, Raul saw his friends with their babies, and told me: 'By the next World Cup I want to have children so that they can watch me play'."
