Portuguese football legend Cristiano Ronaldo confirmed on social media on Thursday that his girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez is pregnant with twins. The Manchester United winger took to Instagram to share the sports news for today with his fans and also posted pictures of their twins' ultrasounds.
Ronaldo will become a father for the sixth time after the birth of twins. He already shared a three-year-old daughter Alana Martina with Argentine model Rodriguez.
36-year-old Ronaldo's first son, Cristiano Junior, was born in 2010 but the identity of the mother is unknown. A surrogate mother then gave birth to a pair of Ronaldo’s twins, daughter Eva and son Mateo, in 2017.
"Delighted to announce we are expecting twins. Our hearts are full of love - we can’t wait to meet you," Ronaldo and Rodriguez wrote in similar posts on their Instagram accounts.
