Alexandre Pato has taken to social media to wish his girlfriend Fiorella Mattheis a happy birthday after she turned 28 on Wednesday.

Mattheis is a famous actress, television presenter and model back in Brazil and is set to move to London with her partner after the striker joined Chelsea on loan from Corinthians until the end of the season.

Pato shared the romantic photo above of the couple on a beach on his personal Instagram account on Wednesday morning and wrote: “Today is your day! But every day I get this gift! That the man upstairs can bless you more and more! You are blessed and have a huge heart! You deserve all the applause … Because today is your day! Congratulations my love! … Best wishes and much success! Because you deserve it. #happybdaymylove”

The former AC Milan star is yet to make his first appearance for his new club as he continues to work on his fitness levels.

Pato, 26, has been training with his new team-mates at Chelsea’s Cobham training base in recent days as his team-mates prepare for their Premier League clash with Newcastle United at Stamford Bridge on Saturday evening.
