After a shocking defeat to Spain in the on-going World Cup, Portuguese winger Cristiano Ronaldo has made another shocking revelation: he has just become the father of a baby boy!
The 25-year-old made the announcement on his Facebook page as well as his Twitter account in the wee hours of Sunday morning (04.07.2010), and in the message, the flamboyant footie hunk has indicated that that he would bring up the child without the unnamed mother.
Cristiano said: "It is with great joy and emotion that I inform I have recently become father to a baby boy. As agreed with the baby's mother, who prefers to have her identity kept confidential, my son will be under my exclusive guardianship."
According to sources, the baby is very likely to be brought up by CR's family in his native Portugal and Ronaldo's mom and sis were preparing the documentation to take the child to Portugal. However, no one knows for sure whether CR had a fling with the mysterious woman or through a Michael Jackson-style arrangement.
The world's most expensive footballer - who is currently dating Russian lingerie model Irina Shayk - was linked to several beauties in the past: tennis player Maria Sharapova, 'Big Brother' star Imogen Thomas, socialite Paris Hilton and even reality TV star Kim Kardashian. But rumours are rife that the mysterious baby mama could well be 21-year-old Spanish model Raffaella Fico, who CR dated last September.
