Cristiano Ronaldo: 'I have recently become father to a baby boy'

Looks like soccer stud Cristiano Ronaldo has a new goal – being a dad.

The Team Portugal player and Emporio Armani underwear model announced Saturday on his Facebook page and Twitter that he is the proud father of a newborn son.

"It is with great joy and emotion that I inform I have recently become father to a baby boy," said Ronaldo, 25.


As for the child’s mother? Ronaldo, who has previously played the field with Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian, writes, "As agreed with the baby's mother, who prefers to have her identity kept confidential, my son will be under my exclusive guardianship."

Asked for further details, a spokesman at Gestifute, which manages Ronaldo, would only tell People: "It's all true but we don't want to say any more."

    Surrogate?! Come on now, lets call a spade a spade here this is some chick he hooked up with while in the states and unfortunately he 'slipped one by the goalie' (a shame he couldn't have done more of that in the actual WC tourney this year). I commend and respect him much more now that he has stepped up as a man than anything he has ever done on the pitch. This coming from a DIE HARD Seleccao Portuguese supporter!!! I am ALSO a fan of him at Man U and now at Real, he now commands true respect! Don't be mistaken his son will live a wonderful life...we should all be so lucky
    Viva Portugal, Forca Ronaldo!!!

    I hope he actually takes a role in the childs life and just leave it to the "Guardian"

      If you read HE IS the guardian. ie. he is looking after the child himself. He has full custody, the mother is not involed. It is alleged he hired a surrogate to have his child.

    I hope the kid doesn't keep him awake all night during the next World Cup.
