Cristiano Ronaldo has – finally – appeared to confirm that his current girlfriend is pregnant with what will be his fourth child.
The Real Madrid and Portugal superstar, who is currently in a relationship with Georgina Rodriguez, seemed to let slip that his partner is pregnant in an interview with El Mundo.
Ronaldo was asked about the recent arrivals of twins Eva and Mateo and, when quizzed about being happy that another was on the way, the 32-year-old all-but-confirmed the long held rumours.
After El Mundo had enquired with “And are you happy with the one on the way?”, Ronaldo merely stated: “Yes, very much.”
That verification has now pretty much ended weeks and weeks of speculation that Rodriguez was pregnant with Ronaldo’s child, even though a multitude of photographs in the press and on social media had suggested another baby was on the way without official confirmation.
Ronaldo’s three children – seven-year-old Cristiano Jr, Eva and Mateo – were all born by surrogate mothers, meaning that the latest potential addition to his growing brood would be his first from a relationship he has been in.
Rumours about Rodriguez’s pregnancy had begun to surface ahead of last season’s Champions League final when Ronaldo posted an image on his Instagram account hinting at a possible pregnancy.
The ex-Manchester United and Sporting star was seen cradling Rodriguez’s stomach with his left hand – a photograph that led to widespread gossip that he would soon add to his growing family.
With little in the way of denial from the couple in the press since then, conjecture has only continued to mount until this seeming official confirmation.
Ronaldo had been enjoying a much needed summer break with Rodriguez and his three children in Ibiza following his international excursions with Portugal at the 2017 Confederations Cup in Russia.
