Cristiano names his son after himselfJuly 8th, 2010 - 2:37 pm ICT by IANS
London, July 8 (IANS) Dashing Portugal footballer Cristiano Ronaldo has named his son, reportedly born from a surrogate mother, after himself, said a family member.
The senior Ronaldo is currently on a holiday in the US with his Russian model girlfriend Irina Shayk after leaving his son with his mother and sister.
“The baby is doing very well. We are looking after him while Cristiano is away. He’s called Cristiano just like his dad.
“Cristiano chose the name but we like it. He looks like his father and like me. He has the same eyes. We don’t know the mother, we never met her,” Daily Telegraph Wednesday quoted Ronaldo’s sister Katia as saying.
She added: “Some people may think it’s strange, but we don’t. We’re very happy about what Cristiano has done.”
On model Irina Shayk, Katia said: “She seems very nice. I don’t think she is after him for his money.”
Reports in Portugal suggest that Ronaldo chose a surrogate mother after twice visiting fertility specialists in Florida. The baby was born June 17.
