Real Madrid football star, Cristiano Ronaldo has finally welcomed twins from a surrogate mum.
According to the Portuguese Media, the babies – a girl and boy named Eva and Mateo – were born on Thursday to a woman living on the US West Coast.
“Mateo and Eva, those are the names of Cristiano Ronaldo’s twins. The boy and girl were born to a surrogate mum. It’s a secret that Cristiano Ronaldo hasn’t yet revealed to the rest of the world,” the Portuguese TV channel reported.
The Real Madrid super star was rumoured to have had his previous child, Cristiano Jr, via surrogacy back in 2010.
The footballer is clearly very proud of his spitting-image young boy, often taking to social media to gush over the youngster to his 93.5 million followers.
Ronaldo has previously revealed how his son doesn’t need a mother. This he said in a candid documentary.
Opening up about being a single father in the tell-all window into his life, he says the young lad: “doesn’t need a mother, just me.
“Having a father is enough.”
When speaking about the circumstances surrounding his son’s birth, Ronaldo explained: “People speculate I was with this girl or another, or there was a surrogate mother.
“I have never told anyone and never will.
When Cristiano is grown up I will tell him what I did, what I felt, everything that went through my mind.
“Some children never get to know their parents, neither mother nor father. Having a father is enough.”
Ronaldo is currently dating Spanish model Georgina Rodriguez, and had her by his side during the Fifa Best Award earlier this year.
Ronaldo and his representatives, Gestifute, are yet to comment on the report which was circulated by Portuguese newspapers over the weekend.
