The latest news coming out of his Foundation isn’t about a project in Cerete, though.
On Wednesday, the Twitter account announced that the Rangers star had become a father.
“The Alfredo Morelos Foundation congratulates Alfredo Morelos and his wife Yesenia on the birth of their daughter,” read the tweet (translated).
The news was picked up by many delighted Bears, who sent congratulatory messages to the Ibrox hero.
Here’s a selection of reactions:

As yet, it’s uncertain when Morelos will be required to return to Glasgow, with no plan set out regarding the resumption of football in Scotland.
Even though various leagues across Europe are gearing up to restart, it’s likely that the Premiership season will be declared at an end at some point in the next 10 days.
El Buffalo is comfortably the club’s top scorer across all competitions in 2019/20 with 29 goals in 46 appearances.
