2008 starts well for Alejandro Valverde, who became a father for the very first time. This Friday, January 4, his wife Ángela gave birth to twins at the clinic Virgen de la Vega in Murcia, Spain. Iván (2530 g), was born at 10.40 am, and Alejandro (2830 g), just five minutes later. The mother and both new-born babies are well. Congratulations on behalf of the Cyclingnews staff!
