Turkish superstar Tarkan takes to Twitter to announce he is going to be a father

One of Turkey’s biggest pop stars has confirmed rumours that he and his wife are expecting their first child. Tarkan broke his silence yesterday afternoon in a 38-second video clip posted on his Twitter account.

With a beaming face, Tarkan starts the recording by enigmatically saying “the matter has been talked about for a fair while”, and that “Every day we are asked, is it or isn’t it true?”

He continues, “If we said it’s not, they don’t believe us. If we said there’s no such thing, they don’t believe us. Perhaps they are justified.”

The star then leans into the camera and whispers, “Yes it’s true. I am going to be a father. It’s true.”

“I am very happy and I wanted to share with all of you,” he adds before blowing a kiss. It was Tarkan’s first post since the beginning of January, when he tweeted about the passing of iconic actor Münir Özkul.

The multi-million selling hit singer married his sweetheart Pınar in May 2016. The couple, who are both German Turks, had dated for five years before tying the knot.
