Cristiano Ronaldo Reveals His Son’s Name
Cristiano Ronaldo surprised us all this weekend with his “I’m a dad!” announcement, and slowly but surely we’re getting some details about the new addition to his family. For instance: His nearly month-old son is named Cristiano Jr. And, he was born June 17, according to People.com.
Apparently little Cristiano weighed 9 pounds, 8 ounces at birth, and measured 21 inches. He’s currently staying with his grandma and auntie back in Portugal while his 25-year-old father and his girlfriend Irina Shayk are vacationing in New York.
Cristiano’s mom said the baby “looks like his father and like me. He has the same eyes,” and “We’re very happy. The baby is well, it’s healthy and that’s what matters.”
No word on who baby Cristiano’s mama is, and it doesn’t sound like it’ll be info that comes easy. When the Portuguese soccer player announced the birth over Facebook and Twitter last weekend, he wrote: It is with great joy and emotion that I inform I have recently become father to a baby boy,” he wrote. “As agreed with the baby’s mother, who prefers to have her identity kept confidential, my son will be under my exclusive guardianship. No further information will be provided on this subject and I request everyone to fully respect my right to privacy (and that of the child) at least on issues as personal as these are.”
