They shared the same photo of their newborn daughter Yanay 's tiny hand on Friday morning.

According to Spanish website Divinity, Yanay is a name of South American origin and means 'my beloved'.

It also refers to a 'sweet and tender' woman loved by everyone around her.

The shot-stopper and famous singer - who famously likened Manchester to the back of a fridge - both captioned their pictures with 'Yanay 4•3•21' complete with a loveheart.

And one follower commented on De Gea's post: "She was born on our best formation 4-3-21."

United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's favourite formation is a variation of the set-up with Bruno Fernandes in front of two holders in midfield.

That leaves two attackers out wide - often Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford - to support the central striker, either Anthony Martial or Edinson Cavani.

De Gea missed Wednesday's 0-0 draw with Crystal Palace due to 'personal reasons' as Dean Henderson stepped in.

It has since emerged he is in Spain to be with his wife and could miss United's next five matches - with Solskjaer confirming his absence for this weekend's Manchester derby.

And as revealed by SunSport, Henderson expects to be the Red Devils' No1 next season.

He has played understudy to first-choice De Gea in the Premier League and Champions League since returning from his two-year loan at Sheffield United.

But the 23-year-old, recently linked with Tottenham and Borussia Dortmund, feels ready to take over between the sticks full-time, with United now considering selling £375,000-a-week De Gea in the summer.
