Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo and his girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez have welcomed their bundle of joy.
The couple welcomed a baby girl named Alana Martin into the family. Ronaldo made the announcement on Instagram with a picture of the happy couple and the new arrival, as well as his eldest son Cristiano Jr.
Alongside the picture, the soccer superstar wrote: “Alana Martina is just born! Both Geo and Alana are doing great! We are all very happy!”
Alana Martina arrived nine days earlier than anticipated at a Madrid hospital near Ronaldo’s home. Rodriguez was said to be due to give birth around November 21, but was admitted to hospital earlier on Sunday. According to reports in Spain, the date was brought forward because Ronaldo was given time off from Portugal’s international break fixtures and has no club matches either until next weekend.
Prior to the birth of their daughter, Georgina and Ronaldo had decided to release the baby’s name.
The Real Madrid player said: “I chose the first name and Geo the second.
“The name of my daughter will be Alana Martina. I just wanted to share this with you. I think it is a beautiful name.”
While she’s the couple’s first child together, Cristiano Ronaldo welcomed her as his fourth.
In addition to 7-year-old son Cristiano Ronaldo Jr born through a surrogate, Ronaldo welcomed twins Eva and Mateo via another surrogate in June this year.
Speaking to Hello Magazine before the launch of his new CR7 Junior Collection clothing line, Ronaldo shared what being a father meant to him.
“Being a father is a unique and personal journey, something that has changed me completely,” he told Hello magazine before launch his new CR7 Junior Collection clothing line.
“It’s taught me things about love that I never knew existed.
“It has softened me and given me a different perspective on what is really important in my life.
“I can’t wait to be a dad again. Being a father and seeing my family grow is without doubt the greatest privilege I’ve had.
“Spending time with them, being by their side, smiling and laughing with them. They’ve brought a lot of happiness and joy to my life.”
Looks like the Cristiano Ronaldo dynasty will see more additions in the future. In the meantime, congratulations to the couple on welcoming their bundle of joy.
