The former American international and his wife Hannah Bartell recently became first-time parents to little Talon Bartell Donovan.

The sportsman announced the news on Instagram, posting a photo of the family and a caption, which reads: "I've been fortunate to achieve a lot of wonderful things in my life but nothing comes close to being a father."

The new dad, who played soccer in Germany and England, and teamed up with David Beckham at the Los Angeles Galaxy, wed Bartell in May (15), four years after divorcing his first wife, actress Bianca Kajlich.
