This is shocking news! Portuguese footballer Cristiano Ronaldo, 25, announced the birth of his son on his Facebook and Twitter pages.

“It is with great joy and emotion that I inform you that I have recently become the father to a baby boy. As I 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 respect my right to privacy (and that of the child) at least on issues as personal as these are.”

No word on who the baby mama might be, and whether she and the baby daddy had a relationship at one time. The possibility exists that she was simply willing to provide him with an offspring and then walk away – not unlike the scenario with Ricky Martin’s twin sons. Interesting.

The Daily Mail is suggesting that the mother of Ronaldo’s child, gave birth to the baby boy a month ago in the U.S. They go on to suggest that Cristiano and his family are preparing the paperwork to bring the child to Portugal where he will be raised.

The athlete was recently linked to Kim Kardashian. Prior to that, there were reported romances with tennis star Maria Sharapova, Big Brother star Imogen Thomas, and Paris Hilton.

Congratulations to Real Madrid forward Cristiano!
