Cristiano Ronaldo Welcomes A Son, Has 'Exclusive Guardianship'


Portuguese soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo announced on Facebook this weekend that he is a new dad, saying “It is with great joy and emotion that I inform I have recently become father to a baby boy.”

The news is shocking in that it was completely out of the blue. Cristiano is not dating anyone, has not been sending air kisses into the World Cup stands at a large bellied woman, and had not made any previous statement that he was expecting. So who? What? Huh?  

Cristiano, who is 25,  isn’t dropping the baby mama’s name and he has “exclusive guardianship.”

“As agreed with the baby’s mother, who prefers to have her identity kept confidential,” he continued, “my son will be under my exclusive guardianship.”

This seems odd. Cristiano is a bit of a playboy and has been linked to several women in the past including Kim Kardashian. Maybe the mother is very young? Maybe she did not want a child? Maybe it’s something completely different. It’s pretty strange, but he seems happy. All the best to him and his new family member.
