Ronaldo and Georgina Rodriguez announce they are expecting twins
With CR5 and CR6 on the way for the couple, Cristiano Ronaldo will soon be just one shy of his seven-child target. Georgina confirmed the news on Instagram this Thursday.
The twins will be the couple's second and third children after Alana Martina, who was born in November 2017. The couple also both care for Ronaldo’s three other children, 11-year-old Cristiano Jr. and four-year-old twins Eva Maria and Matteo, who were reportedly born to a surrogate mother in June 2017, just months before their sister Alana.
Georgina and Ronaldo “delighted”
After Spanish magazine Hola broke the story of Georgina’s pregnancy, the couple took to socila media to confirm the news.
“Delighted to announce we are expecting twins. Our hearts are full of love - we can’t wait to meet you,” wrote Ronaldo in an Instagram post featuring a picture of the smiling couple holding ultrasound images of the expectant twins.
Georgina has previously expressed her desire to be a mother again following the birth of Alana Martina, saying in an interview last year: "My desire for motherhood is stronger than anything. I hope to have more children."
The Spanish model has passed the first trimester of pregnancy while adapting to her new life in Manchester, where the family arrived in the summer after Cristiano signed for Manchester United, returning to the club where his career took off, 12 years after leaving the Old Trafford for Real Madrid in 2009.
Ronaldo chasing lucky number 7
In 2017, not long after becoming a father for the fourth time, Ronaldo revealed to France Football his desire to have seven children, in honor of the famous ‘7’ that has adorned his back throughout his illustrious career. "I want seven, the magic number, and I think that's fine,” he said.
His dream, he told the French magazine, was to have seven children and seven Ballon d’Ors. He is now just one child away from his target, however, at 36, the five-time Ballon d’Or may have less chance of reaching the magic seven when it comes to football’s most prized personal accolade. But as many have learned over the years, you can never write anything off when it comes to the world’s greatest ever goalscorer.
