Rio Ferdinand became a dad for the fourth time last week as he and wife Kate welcomed their baby son into the world.
New dad Rio and first time mum Kate have not yet spoke about their happy news, nor have they disclosed their baby boy's name.
The 42-year-old decided to hold his tongue when it came to the new addition and instead took to Instagram to share some football banter.
Breaking his silence since the recent birth, he instead opted to give his 4.5million followers a bit of light-hearted fun as he poked fun at some of his supporters from his previous club Leeds as they took on Manchester United.
He shared a picture of a young lad wearing a white football shirt and holding a banner that read: "Rio who?"
The professional centre back shared the image to make light of his mammoth transfer deal as he left Manchester United for Leeds in 2002, landing himself a record multi-million pound fee.
He captioned it: "The cheek of it. 'Rio who' ya know! And I was your captain little man."
Making his worth known, he finished: "British Transfer Record £30million."
Of course, the tongue-in-cheek quip saw quite an abundance of social media traction with the post racking up more than 194,000 likes.
One fan commented: "Oi caption game strong #neverforget little man."
Another remarked: "That kid must feel stupid now that he is older."
While another said: "Man Utd legend. What Utd fans would do to have a prime Rio in our defence right now."
The news came on Friday that Kate and Rio had welcomed their son into the world but the pair have remained tight-lipped about it.
At this stage, Kate a Rio have not even released an official statement or social media post about the birth of their son.
Although an insider did reveal to The Sun : "The birth of their baby is the best Christmas present Kate, Rio and their family could have asked for.
"It's going to be more magical than ever.
"Mother and baby are doing great and everyone is excited about the latest addition to the family," the source added.
The iconic footballer is already father to Lorenz, 13, Tate, 11, and Tia, nine, with Kate taking on the motherly role as step-mum to them all after Rio's wife Rebecca tragically passed away.
