The Brazilian’s son, Miguel, who is just nine years old, suffers with alopecia – an autoimmune disease that causes the youngster to lose his hair – and has done since the age of four.
Allan has now made a lovely gesture to his young son by letting him shave all his hair off in order for the pair to look alike.
The 30-year-old, who has been in fine form on the pitch for the Toffees since arriving in the summer, is now showing his personality off it.

Allan took to Instagram to share the image of him sitting down with his son, with the Everton midfielder’s short haircut now gone.
He shared a post by his partner Thais Valentim, which read: “My little things!
“I thought a lot if I should bring this subject up here, because the truth is that I am not so comfortable with it. I’m not sure what words to use, what to say.
“But after thinking and praying and receiving some questions, I came to share with you a road that we have traveled for some time.
“When our Miguel was 4 years old he was diagnosed with Alopecia, an autoimmune disease in which the body attacks the hair follicle itself. Really? It is severe? Does he have treatment? Has problems? No.
“The only major problem with alopecia is aesthetics. Our Miguel is super healthy and rarely needs to take a medicine, thank God. Is it genetic? Is it emotional? We don’t know either.
“Sometimes people ask us, they ask us, but there are answers that not even we have.
“I actually decided to expose it to preserve it. He’s a happy child, he’s always laughing! Well with life! The sun in our house. He takes everything well and sometimes makes fun of himself. But sometimes it ends up being saddened by the questions and looks.
“And I don’t want to see him like that anymore.
“I know that every mother is a suspect, but he is so special. Child loved, lovable, chosen and separated by God. Masterpiece of the creator! Made and perfect the way Father dreamed for us.
“We love you little !!! And we also love that little bit of you. Ps: thank you love @ allanmarques91 for being the most amazing father in the world. #fatherlikeson.”
