He took to Instagram to finally confirm the happy baby news with fans in June, after a lot of speculation from the press, revealing that he had become a dad to twins – a baby boy and a baby girl named Mateo and Eva, respectively.

The former Manchester United player is also a dad to seven-year-old Cristiano Jr, but he never revealed if he also used a surrogate to have his firstborn.
