A football fan has today hailed Gianluca Di Marzio as “the best” after learning about his wife’s impending pregnancy after reading a tweet from the Italian journalist.
Speaking mere moments after learning that his wife would soon give birth to their first child, Manchester United fan Rory Combes admitted that he had previously doubted Di Marzio’s credentials up until the point he had predicted the pregnancy.
“I must admit, I was a little suspicious when I used to see his tweets. He was always going on about this transfer or that one, and they often went through, but I just thought it was kinda dodgy. But this whole situation has completely changed my opinion about him,” said Combes, whose wife Lydia reportedly discovered she was with child an entire six weeks after the news was first broken by the Sky Sport Italy journalist.
“We had been trying for a baby for a while, but we’d had no luck. So when I saw Di Marzio tweeting about us having a child I thought it was bullshit and assumed it was just the usual transfer/pregnancy clickbait. But lo and behold, six weeks to the day after he sent that tweet out my wife did the test. We were a little worried about how he knew so much about us but now we’re just delighted, and it’s testament to just how clued in he is.”
At press time, Combes said that while his opinion had changed on Di Marzio he remains skeptical about his compatriot Tancredi Palmeri, who for years has been writing that the couples’ first child is “just weeks away”.
