‘We can’t explain how we feel to be able to fulfil our biggest dream together.
‘We’re counting down the days to meet you, Dad and Mom already love you so much Enzo.’
Garnacho and Garcia are childhood sweethearts and the Sun have reported that they have been living together in a quiet part of Cheshire since he joined the Red Devils.
Garcia is a student who splits her time between Cheshire and Spain where her family lives.
It has been a massive week for the United winger who penned a new five-year deal with the Red Devils on Friday.
The teenager was about to enter the final year of his contract, but has committed his future to United until June 2028.
His new deal has seen him receive a significant pay rise on his prior £7,000-per-week deal.

‘When I joined this incredible club , I dreamt of achieving my debut, playing at Old Trafford, scoring my first goal and winning trophies with this badge on my chest,’ said Garnacho, whose breakthrough season at United has been disrupted by the ankle ligament injury he sustained against Southampton on March 12.
Garnacho, 18, scored four goals and made five assists in 31 appearances before the injury.
It is understood the winger made a personal plea to United boss Erik ten Hag to release him for the U20 World Cup which starts on May 20, after the club blocked him from participating.

If United were to let Garnacho play for Argentina, it would mean he would miss their final three Premier League games – against Bournemouth, Chelsea and Fulham – as well as the FA Cup
According to Argentinian outlet Doble Amarilla, Garnacho has spoken with ten Hag and told him: ‘I need to write my story with the Argentine shirt. I ask you please to let me go’.
The 18-year-old posted an image to Instagram last week suggesting he’s on the road recovery, showing him wearing boots for the first time since the injury.
