If rumour be true, Cristiano Ronaldo allegedly used a surrogate to become a baby daddy.
The soccer star made a shocking announcement over the weekend that he is a proud new papa.
He wrote on his Facebook page: “It is with great joy and emotion that I inform I have recently become a father to a baby boy.
“As agreed with the baby’s mother, who prefers to have her identity kept confidential, my son will be under my exclusive guardianship.”
But while he hasn’t revealed the identity of the baby’s mother, the tabloids are already on womb watch and speculating over who was the lucky lady.
Well, Portuguese daily Diario de Noticias has a theory. The paper alleged Ronadlo used a surrogate.
The baby boy was reportedly conceived by the surrogate at the end of last summer in San Diego, when Ronaldo was over there on holiday.
The paper claims Ronaldo flew to Algarve to meet his son as soon as his team was kicked out of the World Cup.
His sister, Katia Aveiro, has also confirmed the bambino news to Diario de Noticias.
“The news is true, but he doesn’t want to talk about it. It’s his personal life and when he wants to, he will talk,” she said.
She added: “He has brown eyes and brown hair like Cristiano. He’s very happy, of course! Who isn’t happy having children?
“The baby looks like him, although he’s still very small to see what his features will be like. He’s very calm, he just eats and sleeps.”
A Portuguese TV station also claims the bambino will be called Ronaldo Junior. Poor thing.
But while fingers point towards a San Deigo-based surrogate for Ronaldo, our attention is also drawn to his rumoured girlfriend Irina Shayk, who boomed on her Facebook page this week: “My boyfriend is now the father of a boy.”
Oh, the plot thickens! Congrats, Ronaldo.
