Cristiano Ronaldo has confirmed that he and girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez are expecting a baby together.
The Portuguese professional footballer, 32, addressed rumours that had been circulating about the pregnancy during an interview with Spanish news outlet El Mundo, who asked whether he was ‘happy’ to have another child on the way.
He replied simply: ‘Yes, very much.’
Georgina, 23, has been dating Cristiano since last year, and the new arrival will be their first child together. However, the sportsman is also father to an older son, also named Cristiano, whose mother is unknown, and recently welcomed twins, said to be a boy and a girl, who were widely reported to be carried by a surrogate, although this has yet to be verified by the star.
‘So happy to be able to hold the two new loves of my life 🙏’, he said, announcing their arrival on social media.
Portugese TV channel SIC claimed that the children had been named Eva and Mateo, but again, Cristiano himself has remained tight-lipped about the details.
Fans rushed to congratulate him on the birth of the pair, with one writing in a comment on his official Facebook page: ‘Amazing 😍😍😍 They are so small and cute omg 😍😍😍 Just Enjoy your babies and dont listen the negative people 👏👏👏 Portugal is proud of you’.
‘Those two beauties don’t even know how lucky they are !!! Ronaldo great player and definitely a great dad!! He has great family values!! Congratulations Cristiano 👏👏’ another agreed.
Neither Cristiano or Georgina have revealed any additional information about their news, such as how far along the pregnancy is, or whether they are expecting a boy or a girl.
Recently, a source told a Portuguese newspaper of their relationship: ‘They are very happy with the arrival of the baby. Everyone adores Georgina and are satisfied with this relationship.’
