Kenyan football darling McDonald Mariga is one proud father.

Little is known about his personal life and his family apart from a while back when a close family member dismissed rumours that he was dating TV host Joey Muthengi. Speculation was high that the two were an item after they participated in a betting advert and had great chemistry.

Victor Wanyama and Mariga talk about how they spend their millions

Mariga is set to walk down the aisle in the summer with the love of his life, the woman who sired his baby girl. A source said,

“He is married to his mixed-race wife in Italy and they have a daughter, Kenisha, together. She is very private. They are planning on getting married in Spain in summer 2019.”

The source added,

‘Victor Wanyama is the best man.’

Summer begins in June and ends September. So if the bride and groom-to-be are to choose a date, it will fall between those months.

Recently, Mariga celebrated a new milestone in his daughter’s life by penning a heartfelt message to her:

“Happiest birthday my beautiful princess, my greatest treasure, enjoy your day. I love u honey.

Mariga posted a video of Kenisha playing basketball. The proud father captioned the video of his daughter scoring with a kissing emoji, a love heart and basketball icons.

Here are some reactions from Mariga’s fans who are now fans of his daughter.
