Quick Bio

Davi Lucca is Neymar’s first son, born in August 2011 with his former girlfriend Carolina Dantas. Born in Sao Paulo, Davi is a celebrity child.

At the time of his birth, Neymar was only 19 years old, still in his teenage years, and playing for Santos. Davi’s full name is Davi Lucca da Silva Santos.

There has been a lot of noise surrounding the young Davi because of his father’s career. His mother is also a famous person.

Carolina Dantas is a digital creator with close to 3 million followers on Instagram. Born in Sao Paulo, Brazil, in October 1993, she is younger than Neymar Junior. Carolina completed her high school education in Brazil and then attended Colegio Adventista de Santos College.

She began a career in the fashion industry, co-founding a clothing line. Neymar’s presence in her life boosted her social media reach and fan base.

Some media reports claim they were never a couple and met through a common friend. According to some reports and sources, Lucca was conceived following a one-night stand.

And in the beginning, Dantas didn’t want to tell Neymar of her pregnancy. But she later changed her mind and realized Neymar had the right to know about his child.

They separated after one year into their relationship.

Following in his father’s footsteps

Because he is the son of one of the greatest football players of all time, Davi is receiving quite a lot of attention. And he is also striving to be a football player. Will he reach the heights of his father? We will have to wait and see.

He is still very young, and we cannot say whether he will be as prolific as his father. But he is already making his first steps in the world of professional football.

He is a member of FC Barcelona. His father registered him with the club. His membership ID number at the Spanish club is 155,675.

Davi Lucca is also often seen at PSG’s training grounds, practicing with his father Neymar. He definitely wants to follow in his father’s footsteps.

Does he have siblings?

As of June 2023, Davi doesn’t have any siblings. But they are on the way. In April 2023, the PSG star announced on Instagram that he is expecting his second child with his current girlfriend, Bruna Biancardi.

He wrote the caption in his native Portuguese language. Translated to English, the captions read,” We dream of your life, we plan your arrival, and knowing you are here to complete our love makes our days much happier. You will arrive in a beautiful family, with your brother, grandparents, uncles, and aunties who already love you very much. Come soon son/daughter, we are waiting for you”.

Is he on social media?

As of June 2023, Davi is still only 12 years old. He will enter his teenage years now. But that hasn’t stopped him from becoming a social media star. Being the son of one of the most famous athletes in the world definitely helps.

Davi has more than 110k followers on his social media handle. And he is legally allowed to access Instagram. But that is nothing compared to the popularity of his father.

Neymar Jr. has more than 210 million followers. He is among the top 5 most followed footballers in the world, alongside Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Net worth

Davi is trying to follow in his father’s footsteps. But will he be as successful? We will have to wait and see. As he is entering his teenage years, he doesn’t have to worry about his money. We have to remember, his father signed his first professional contract at 17 years of age.

Until then, he can enjoy the wealth of his father. With a net worth of more than $200 million, Neymar is one of the wealthiest football players in the world.
