Superstar footballer Cristiano Ronaldo has reportedly welcomed a pair of twins into his family.
The reports, which at the moment have not been confirmed, claim Ronaldo’s new little boy and little girl, named Mateo and Eva, respectively, came into the world on Thursday.
Portugal’s all-time leading scorer Ronaldo is currently dating Spanish model Georgina Rodriguez, and had her by his side during the Fifa Best Award earlier this year.
It is being claimed by Portuguese outlet SIC that Ronaldo used a surrogate mother to carry his children.
“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.
It would not be the first time the four-time Ballon d’Or winner has been linked with a surrogate either, with very little other than speculation being known about the origins of Ronaldo’s son, Cristiano Jr., who is now six.
In March, British tabloid The Sun had reported that the four-time Ballon d’Or winner was to become the father of twins by a surrogate mother on the west coast of the United States.
Ronaldo and his representatives, Gestifute, are yet to comment on the report which was circulated by Portuguese newspapers over the weekend.
The report comes after a twin-heavy week in the celebrity world, after American actor George Clooney and his human rights lawyer wife Amal welcomed newborns Ella and Alexander.
