Several British newspapers have reported the story today that Real Madrid star, Cristiano Ronaldo, will be a father to two baby boys through use of a surrogate mother in the United States.
Family life to get busier for Cristiano
A source close to the family spoke to The Sun:
“He likes to keep a tight lid on his private life but has told loved ones and close friends the baby boys are due to arrive very soon. He feels the time is right for his boy to have brothers to grow up with. His mum Dolores will be there to lend a helping hand like she has been with little Cristiano.”
Honesty for his children
The Portuguese player, whose current partner is Georgina Rodriguez, was joined in 2010 by Cristiano Jr, and previously the proud father has spoken about there being no problem that his son doesn't have his biological mother with them.
"In the world, many kids don't have mums, don’t have dads or dads die or mums die. Cristiano has a dad, an unbelievable dad. He has a grandmother."
Los Blancos' number seven has also been on record as saying that he'll tell his son everything about this as he grows up, "not because people want me to say it but because he deserves it."
Respect for private matters
The surrogate mother's identity is understandably not being revealed and Cristiano has asked for privacy in his family matters to be respected.
