Cristiano Ronaldo’s World Cup with Portugal ended last week thanks to David Villa and Spain, however he is now embarking on a new chapter in his life. The Real Madrid star announced Saturday that he is going to be a proud papa! Just not the way you would’ve assumed.
Allegedly, his son was born via a surrogate in NYC. Via Ronaldo’s facebook, “As agreed with the baby’s mother, who prefers to have her identity kept confidential,” he writes, “my son will be under my exclusive guardianship.”
The baby’s mother wants to remain confidential??!?! Cristiano Ronaldo is arguably one of the biggest sports stars in the entire world and his baby’s mama doesn’t want anyone to know? Ok, I’ve already come to grips with the fact that he is the one that doesn’t want anyone to know, but why??
Let me preface this next point by saying, I understand people dress a bit differently in Western Europe. They never got the memo that bathing suits could be longer than 6 inches or that males don’t need to shave their entire body in order to be a man. I also admit, I don’t know much about the family values of the Portuguese. It may be that having children by the time you’re 25 is so important that tons of guys are trying to buy theirs without actually being in a relationship. With that being said, c’mon.
I think it’s awesome that Portugal/Spain has their own Clay Aiken. I also don’t think he needs to come out and make an announcement about all of this, it’s his private life. Besides, he’s done a pretty good job painting a picture for everyone.
I hope Ronaldo and whichever man he chooses(obligatory Seinfeld “Not that there’s anything wrong with that!”) enjoy raising their child and I think I speak for everyone when I say, he’s going to be one hell of a footballer.
Thanks to my lovely girlfriend for the links and inspiration on this one!
