Girlfriend / Spouse

Hulk has dated –

  1. Iran Angelo (2007–2019) – Hulk had married Iran Angelo in 2007, having first met her in Japan while he was representing Japanese professional soccer club Kawasaki Frontale (2005, 2006-2008). They have 3 children together – 2 sons named Ian Souza and Tiago Souza, and a daughter named Alice Souza. After more than a decade of wedlock, the pair had parted ways in July 2019.
  2. Camila Angelo (2019–Present) – A few months later, in October 2019, Hulk had, rather controversially, started dating Iran’s niece, Camila Angelo. In March 2020, it was reported that the pair had married, partly because Camila had needed a visa to stay in China with Hulk who was representing the Chinese professional soccer club Shanghai Port F.C. (2016–2020) and was staying in that country at that time. In September 2021, it was reported that they were expecting their first child together.
