Berbatov becomes dad after bagging hat-trick

SOFIA - Dimitar Berbatov's partner Elena gave birth to their first child in Sofia on Thursday, just hours after the Manchester United striker scored a hat-trick in Bulgaria's 6-2 win over Georgia in a World Cup qualifier.

The baby girl has been named Dea.

"There have been no complications, and both the mother and the baby daughter are healthy," a statement on the player's personal website said.
