According to João’s video, his newborn daughter Giovanna was a “miracle” that the family had vehemently prayed for. 

His Instagram caption for the video reads (translated from Portuguese): “After having our first child David, I became infertile. It was impossible to be a father again with zero sperm production. My wife @karolinneprudencio was healthy and also dreamed of having another child. Until the Lord Jesus healed me, giving me life so I could generate another. 

“Giovanna’s birth is not only a blessing for our family but also for all those who dream of one day living the miracle that only Jesus can do. We prayed every day for a miracle. I was a father again without any artificial procedures. Glory to God! All this emotion is for the miracle performed; my wife is very well and happy!”

Now, little David, baby Giovanna and their dad João are warming hearts everywhere with their touching story and emotional video.
