David Lucca da Silva is the son of Brazilian soccer superstar Neymar. He is better known as “Davi.” Neymar shared the news of becoming a father through his social-media account. However, initially, he did not reveal the name of his son’s mother. Later, David’s mother, Carolina Nogueira Dantas, herself revealed her identity. Neymar and Carolina did not get married and parted ways soon after David’s birth. David, however, spends time with both of them. David has an 'Instagram' page that houses numerous pictures of him spending quality time with Neymar and Carolina.
Neymar's fans were shocked when he announced that he was going to be a father. However, he initially did not reveal the name of the mother of his child. It is believed that the mystery lady feared media attention and that Neymar had a deal with her family to keep her identity a secret. Nevertheless, it was later revealed that the child’s mother was Carolina Nogueira Dantas.
Neymar’s relationship with Carolina had always been complicated. According to sources, they were never a couple. They met through a common friend. Carolina initially avoided Neymar, as she wanted to stay away from any media attention. It is believed that Carolina’s pregnancy was the result of a one-night stand. Initially, she did not wish to tell Neymar about her pregnancy. However, she later changed her mind, as she realized that Neymar had every right know the truth. Neymar handled the situation very well. Although Carolina had contemplated abortion, Neymar’s family was against it. Neymar is a true Catholic, and abortion is a sin according to his faith.
Carolina later opened up about how Neymar had supported her through the pregnancy. Despite being so young, he has proved to be a great father.
