Hours after he captained Portugal to semi-final defeat in the Confederations Cup in Russia, Cristiano Ronaldo has announced the birth of twins. For days Portuguese media have reported that the footballer’s twins had been born to a surrogate mother in the US.
But it was only after the national team were knocked out on penalties by Chile that he confirmed the birth.
Ronaldo went on Facebook to say: “I’m very happy, finally, to be with my children for the first time.”
He already has a son, Cristiano Ronaldo junior, who was born in June 2010.
